Join us for a conversation about the crisis in Venezuela after a showing of a documentary made by an Irish television crew about the 2002 coup in Venezuela which briefly deposed president Chavez. This coup is a watershed in the recent history of Venezuela and seeing this event unfolding in the film can help us make sense of the current deadly crisis in Venezuela and US government involvement in this oil rich country.
The Washington Post published a review of the documentary which said: “Gets viewers inside these tense, emotional and occasionally terrifying events with immediacy and, given the confusion of the time, remarkable clarity.” Another reviewer wrote in the Austin Chronicle: “As riveting as a documentary can possibly be, this slim (74-minute) film is also one of the most politically aware films of the year.”
The community including college students and high school students, are invited to take part in the conversation which will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 6:30 pm at the Bangs Community Center, the Large Activity Room, 70 Boltwood Walk, Amherst, MA
The event is free and open to the public.
The event is sponsored by the Venezuela Solidarity Coalition of Western Mass and the Resistance Center for Peace and Justice.
