Venezuela’s Constituent Assembly: dictatorship or democracy?

Post by Dreamweaver » 21 Jul 2017, 17:03

The Socialist government in Venezuela is copping the blame for what actually resulted from falling oil prices. You will see many many videos about starving people, but all is not as it seems. Abby Martin talks to Venezuelans on the streets of Caracas and investigates the main claim that there's no free press, and that there is no food in the supermarkets.

The country is still capatalistic in its economy. And the socialist govenment is trying to fix things. On July 30th, Venezuelans will elect a people’s body called the “Constituent Assembly” comprised of hundreds of representatives across the country with the power to redraft the constitution.

U.S. politicians, press and opposition in Venezuela are calling the process a “coup” that should be boycotted by all. ... democracy/
