April: Between Peace and Rage (Film Screening)
The short documentary, April: Between Peace and Rage will be screened at Bolivar Hall on Monday 11th November at 7.00pm. The film looks at the violence instigated by sectors of the right-wing opposition in Venezuela against supporters of the elected government in the aftermath of Nicolas Maduro’s election victory in April 2013, which led to the death of 13 people. The film – which recently premièred on the channel VTV in Venezuela – has been recommended by President Maduro, who urged Venezuelans to watch it and take note of its “poignant” message.
The screening is part of the event organised in conjunction with the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign, entitled, “Exposed! Violence and economic warfare – the true face of Venezuela’s anti-democratic opposition” and will be followed by a discussion and Q+A session with the Charge d’Affaires of the Venezuelan Embassy in London, Mr. Álvaro Sánchez, and Dr. Francisco Dominguez of the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign.
The discussion will include an update on the latest developments in Venezuela, where President Maduro has warned that the right-wing, anti-democratic opposition are trying to push the country to “total collapse” with a sustained campaign of destabilisation and economic warfare.
