Latin Waves

Host Sylvia Richard­son speaks to Jorge Mar­ti sec­re­tari­at of Hands off Venezuela about recent events in Venezuela that can be seen as set­ting the stage for Coup in the near future. Venezuela has been under attack from the US since a social­ist gov­ern­ment was first elect­ed in 1998, their was a failed Coup attempt in 2002, Venezuela has seen hard times due to the col­lapse in oil prices and severe sanc­tions by the US and EU that have frozen over­sees assets.

Wash­ing­ton, Brus­sels, Lon­don and right wing Latin Amer­i­can gov­ern­ments are using this cri­sis call­ing for inter­ven­tion based on human­i­tar­i­an grounds while con­ve­nient­ly ignor­ing human rights vio­la­tions in places like Hon­duras and Columbia.
