Venezuelans Under Siege


When: Wednesday, October 16th, 7:00 PM

Join Scott Reed, local activist recently back from Venezuela with
The Food Sovereignty Delegation, and Kevin Young, history
professor at UMass Amherst and producer of Venezuelans Under
Siege, for a report from Venezuela and a film screening.
U.S. sanctions block the Venezuelan people from obtaining food and medicine. They resulted in at least 40,000 deaths between mid-2017 and the end of 2018 – and that was prior to the most severe sanctions, announced in 2019. Venezuelans under Siege documents the impacts of the sanctions plus the ways that ordinary Venezuelans are organizing to survive the sanctions and crisis and to build new institutions of participatory socialism.
