Venezuela is facing significant difficulties, and one of the worst is the widespread misinformation spread by governments and media.
Laura Wells and Roger Harris have traveled to Venezuela multiple times to see for themselves. Roger was there in May 2018 to observe the presidential election, and Laura just returned from an End Venezuela Sanctions delegation. They will present critical information to counter the outright lies and talk about what we and our country can do. They plan to save lots of time for Q&A, so bring your questions.
Both have served on the board of the Task Force on the Americas. They have participated in many Latin American delegations and report-backs. Laura is a long-time Green, and Roger is with the Peace and Freedom Party, so both appreciate the change in Venezuela since their two-party system lost its grip on the country when Hugo Chavez became president 20 years ago. With the changes have come big challenges, which we will discuss.
SPONSOR: Green Sundays are a series of free programs & discussions sponsored by the Green Party of Alameda County and are held on the 2nd Sunday of each month. The monthly business meeting of the County Council of the Green Party of Alameda County follows at 6:45 pm.
