Eyewitness Venezuela: National Speaking Tour featuring Gloria La Riva

On the heels of a month-long trip through Venezuela in the midst of growing U.S. aggression, antiwar activist Gloria La Riva will be speaking in cities across the country about the current situation in Venezuela, presenting a progressive perspective on the crucial issues facing the Venezuelan people: U.S. economic sanctions, the U.S. media blockade, and the people’s organizing efforts to overcome the aggression. La Riva will show exclusive first-hand video footage from her trip and answer the questions:

  • What is the Bolivarian revolution all about?
  • Is Venezuela suffering an economic collapse?
  • What is the role of the U.S., and is the danger of U.S. war near?
  • How can people in the United States get involved?
