BELKIS URDANETA 
"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.
