YCL London Venezuela Film Screening and Discussion

YCL London will be hosting a special screening of the film "War on Democracy" by John Pilger with a special Venezuelan guest speaker, followed by discussion and drinks and snacks. The topic is the role of U.S. imperialism, intervention and counter-revolutionary movements in Venezuela and Latin America as a whole, where for many years popular left-wing governments have been fighting for social progress, against the dominance of capitalism. This is a great opportunity to hear firsthand about the experiences of that struggle and what we can learn from it today
