Lewisham Way, SE14 6NW London, United Kingdom
Co-hosted by Lewisham Deptford CLP, Goldsmiths Labour Students and the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign

With Dr Francisco Domínguez, Head of the Centre for Brazilian and Latin American Studies at Middlesex University.

When Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó swore himself in as «interim president» despite never having run for office, he was quickly backed by the US and other countries in the Americas including Canada, Brazil and Colombia. For its part, the EU parliament gave Maduro eight days to call fresh elections, after which it has promised to join Washington in recognising Guaidó as Venezuela’s president.

These scenarios of turmoil, sanctions and threats of regime change are nothing new for progressive governments in Latin America. But the recent escalation of threats against Venezuela suggest the crisis has reached a crucial tipping point.

Join us in this event to discuss the experience of the attempts to build socialism in Venezuela, the current crisis and threats of foreign intervention in more detail with Dr Francisco Domínguez, Head of the Centre for Brazilian and Latin American Studies at Middlesex University.
