*Venezuela: Sanctions, Elections and Attempted Coup*
*Will the crisis lead to a major new war?*

March 5, 7pm at Community Church of Boston, 565 Boylston Street

The US is trying to overthrow the Maduro government with military threats,
economic warfare and diplomatic isolation.  But the solutions for the
problems in Venezuela are for the Venezuelans to decide.  The peace
movement must oppose US intervention and support a resolution through
peaceful dialogue!

*Mike Clark* will provide necessary historical context with the theme
"Venezuela vs the Empire: A coup 21 years in the making."  Rev. Clark is
the Recovery Outreach Worker at the Belmont-Watertown United Methodist
Church.  From 2004-14 he visited Venezuela seven times and saw firsthand
the accomplishments of the Bolivarian revolution.

*Dan Kovalik* will speak on "The deadly and illegal US sanctions against
Venezuela, and the legitimacy of Maduro’s election."  Dan currently teaches
at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law; he served 25 years as
Associate General Counsel of the United Steelworkers.  Dan is a longtime
activist opposing US intervention in Latin America and was an observer of
both of Maduro's elections.
