Amid all the weather alerts: This show goes on!

The December 2 constitutional reform referendum in Venezuela shook
both supporters of the Bolivarian revolution and its opponents. For
some it was a victory for democracy, for others, instead, it was a
defeat of socialism. Going beyond the spin, a critical supporter of
the revolution and incisive commentator, Greg Wilpert will give us his
take on the future of the Bolivarian revolution.

Wilpert is editor of Venezuelanalysis.com, the premier
English-language site on Venezuela's revolution and also writer of,
"Changing Venezuela by Taking Power" (Verso Books, October 2007).
