Telling the Truth About Venezuela

May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Anti-Intervention Rally in Venezuela
EYEWITNESS REPORT BACKS FROM RECENT VISITORS
 
Hear from three recent visitors to Venezuela who went to learn firsthand the truth of how the government and population are responding to defend their country from the U.S. led attacks.  Their eyewitness accounts directly counter the false narratives coming from the Administration, Congress and the press, all supporting a discredited, unpopular opposition in order to impose regime change and wrest control of Venezuela’s oil and other resources.
