Steve Ellner: What is really happening in Venezuela

Published on Oct 20, 2018

Winnipeg, October 19, 2018 – The Winnipeg Venezuela Peace Committee held a public forum on Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 entitled “What is really happening in Venezuela?” The forum featured Steve Ellner, professor of economics at the University of Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela and Carlos Ron, Venezuela’s Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs, responsible for North America, who participated via Skype. Regrettably, the Skype connection was so poor that it was largely incoherent and hence not included in this video.

Steve Ellner: War on Venezuela

Published on Nov 24, 2018

The Venezuelan economy is being crippled by the sanctions the Western powers (US, Canada, European Union) have imposed on it. Sanctions impose heavy burdens on ordinary Venezuelans who are just trying to live their lives. Unilateral sanctions are illegal under international law.

Steve Ellner will discuss the impact of these sanctions and the impact of other factors (such as the drop in the price of oil, the reliance on oil exports, economic sabotage by the right-wing, mismanagement) on the Venezuelan people’s lives.

Say NO to US Intervention in Venezuela

Published on Nov 12, 2018

Speaker: Steve Ellner

The Trump Administration has Venezuela in its sights; it has imposed economic sanctions against Venezuela, included Venezuela in the Muslim Ban, and is openly planning a coup of Venezuela’s elected leadership. Trumps wants to punish Venezuela for choosing a different path from US imperialism. Meanwhile the US media talks about US intervention as if it would be “humanitarian” for the people of Venezuela.

Steve Ellner has taught economic history and political science at the Universidad de Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela since 1977. He is on a national speaking tour to help the anti-war and the Latin America solidarity movement learn about the realities on the ground in Venezuela.

Organized by the Anti-War Committee and co-sponsored by the MN Immigrant Action Committee, MN Peace Action Coalition, the Minnesota Cuba Committee & Women Against Military Madness.
