After learning nothing from epic failures in resource rich countries like Iraq and Libya, the US neocons are at it again. Condemnation of a democratically elected president, gaslighting from the international community, sanctions, meddling with supply chains and threatening the lives of the generals.

Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by Head of the Latin American Studies Research Group at Middlesex University Dr. Francisco Dominguez and Professor of Human Rights at Birkbeck Prof. Oscar Guardiola-Rivera to ask what’s really going on in Venezuela.
