"Moving Beyond Rhetoric: Chavez' Venezuela and U.S. Policy"*

Belkis Urdaneta represents a human rights organization based in 
Maracaibo, in the oil-rich Venezuelan state of Zulia. She has been a 
community outreach worker for years, both in the capital of Caracas and 
most recently in the border state of Zulia. Through the Fundacion Buena 
Nueva, Belkis works with Colombian refugees as well as poor Venezuelans, 
and she teaches at the Cecilio Acosta Catholic University. She will 
share a grassroots perspective on the role of U.S. policy toward Venezuela.

This tour is sponsored by Witness for Peace, New England region, which 
brings human rights leaders and community activists from throughout the 
Americas to inform citizen groups here of social and economic conditions 
there. Through such tours, educational and religious organizations are 
called upon to work for the reform of policies that contribute to 
poverty and oppression.
