Venezuela: Sanctions, Elections and Attempted Coup - Tuesday March 5 7PM

When: Tuesday, March 5, 2019, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Where: Community Church • 565 Boylston Street • Boston

Will the crisis lead to a major new war?

The US is trying to overthrow the Maduro government with military threats, economic warfare and diplomatic isolation.  But the solutions for the problems in Venezuela are for the Venezuelans to decide.  The peace movement must oppose US intervention and support a resolution through peaceful dialogue!
 
Mike Clark will provide necessary historical context with the theme "Venezuela vs the Empire: A coup 21 years in the making."  Rev. Clark is the Recovery Outreach Worker at the Belmont-Watertown United Methodist Church.  From 2004-14 he visited Venezuela seven times and saw firsthand the accomplishments of the Bolivarian revolution.
 
Dan Kovalik will speak on "The deadly and illegal US sanctions against Venezuela, and the legitimacy of Maduro’s election."  Dan currently teaches at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law; he served 25 years as Associate General Counsel of the United Steelworkers.  Dan is a longtime activist opposing US intervention in Latin America and was an observer of both of Maduro's elections.
