Info and discussion night: 18 years of militarism in Venezuela

Short url:

Venezuelan anarchist speak out; disappointing lessons from sudamerican left.

This night we take a zoom into the legacy of Hugo Chavez, involving issues like corruption, oil incomes, economic crisis, prosecution of dissidents, ideological control and militarism. After a presentation, there will be time for questions and discussion.

Almost two decades passed for the so-called "Bolivarian revolution". The legacy of Hugo Chavez is nowadays, beyond telesur and rusiatoday propaganda, an execrable economic disaster which has lead to the biggest exodus of Venezuelan people in the whole history of the country. A totalitarian state that has taken over the economy by the hand of the military cast to prosecute disidence to prison and taking advantage from mineral extractivism (oil, gold, gas) to settle with China and Russia the most neoliberal measures to keep Nicolas Maduro on the presidential chair.

Military budget is on the rise; huge privileges are given to the military cast. Ideological control and submission to a death leader. The 1984 Orwellian stories taken as a user manual. 

Join our rounded table tonight.

There will be no food sharing this time.
