Kevin Zeese of Popular Resistance on the effects of sanctions in Venezuela and Iran. Kevin was on trial for being a protector of the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC, at the request of the Venezuelan government. The Embassy Protectors weren’t able to tell the jury that Guaido is not the elected president, that they were invited by the Venezuelan government to protect the embassy or mention International Law that prohibits entry into a foreign embassy. The trial ended in a hung jury, the next hearing is on April 24, 2020.
