The Bolivarian Revolution – an inspiration to all progressive peoples of the world – is under the threat of war from the Trump administration. “Venezuela Under Siege” is a national speaking tour, organized by solidarity activists across the United States, to build solidarity with the Venezuelan masses in their struggle for peace, self-determination and socialism.
The speaker of the tour, Steve Ellner, has been a professor at the Universidad de Oriente in Venezuela since 1977. Since the Bolivarian Revolution began in 1998, he has become one of the movement’s most prolific defenders and analysts in the English language.
We are honored to host him in Milwaukee, and encourage everyone interested in learning more about the truth of Venezuela to attend.
