April 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us on April 19th, International Day of Solidarity with Venezuela, for a discussion on the book Viviremos: Venezuela vs. Hybrid War with editors and contributors Manolo De Los Santos, Claudia De la Cruz, Carlos Ron, and Vijay Prashad.
In this talk, we will be discussing the concept of ‘hybrid war,’ how and why the U.S. and its allies have deployed this policy against Venezuela, and what this means for the Venezuelan people. In addition to analyzing the oppressive and violent context of the hybrid war against Venezuela, Viviremos also celebrates the revolutionary imagination fostered by the struggles of working peoples in Venezuela and in a global context.
