The Truth about Venezuela: Speaking events April 18-29

Canadian Talks with Dimitri Lascaris, Yves Engler, Eva Bartlett

Mainstream media is spreading lies and half truths about the crisis in Venezuela. Canadians are not immune to this influence. Recently Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland announced more sanctions against the Maduro government on the grounds that he is “depriving Venezuelans of their most basic rights and needs” and that “Canada is committed to supporting the peaceful restoration of constitutional democracy in Venezuela.”

Global Research wishes to bring to the attention of our readers the following events in the following Canadian cities in late April, featuring speakers who bring first hand accounts of the situation on the ground in recent weeks.
