Session 5: Sunday, June 3rd: 10:00 - 11:50am
Venezuela has been a driving force for the nations of the Americas attempting to free themselves from US domination. Washington’s actions against Venezuelan sovereignty represent an attempt to reassert imperial control over Latin America. Human rights lawyer Dan Kovalik will address the US threats, sanctions, and disinformation campaign, along with the International role of Venezuela. Venezuelan diplomat Carlos Ron will highlight Venezuela’s accomplishments and its response to the ever-increasing US intervention. Most importantly, human rights activist Ajamu Baraka will discuss solidarity with Venezuela, building a broad anti-imperialist movement in the US.
