Latin Waves

The Unit­ed States his­to­ry of inva­sions in Latin Amer­i­ca is well doc­u­ment­ed. Over 100 inva­sions in the last cen­tu­ry. The eco­nom­ic vio­lence of: odi­ous debts, eco­nom­ic sanc­tions, block­ades to iso­late Venezuela (and any coun­try in their tar­get) from oth­er sources of com­merce, includ­ing pre­vent­ing access to food, fuel, and friendship.

The tac­tic of star­va­tion is intend­ed to pun­ish the pop­u­la­tion of Venezuela, the aggres­sion is intend­ed to pro­voke an implo­sion, and turn peo­ple against their elect­ed leader Pres­i­dent Maduro who was elect­ed on May 20 2019 by an undis­putable major­i­ty. Host Sylvia Richard­son speaks to Soci­ol­o­gist Dr. Maria Paez about the sav­age eco­nom­ic war, the death toll of eco­nom­ic sanc­tions caus­ing the death of 40000 peo­ple. The vio­la­tions of the UN char­ter, the Gene­va con­ven­tion, and trade laws that have cre­at­ed a dan­ger­ous prece­dent for demo­c­ra­t­ic rule. Despite ongo­ing aggres­sion Venezue­lans con­tin­ue to defend their right to auton­o­my and their right to choose their own government.
