In March 2016 the US government renewed sanctions against Venezuela. 
What exactly are these sanctions and what effect do they have on the 
political and economic situation in Venezuela? Meanwhile, inside 
Venezuela, the National Assembly has enacted a series of laws attempting 
to undermine the Bolivarian constitution. The Supreme Court has ruled 
some of those laws unconstitutional. What is happening in the current 
disputes among the executive, legislative, judicial, electoral, and 
citizens’ power branches?

Judy Somberg, of Cambridge, and Susan Scott, of Inverness, CA, working 
with the National Lawyers Guild International Committee, have brought 
several delegations to Venezuela and have hosted US speaking tours of a 
Venezuelan Supreme Court judge, the President of the Electoral Council, 
and other Venezuelan lawyers.

Co-sponsored by: Venezuela Solidarity Committee and Massachusetts
