In this episode we talk with George Ciccariello-Maher. He is an organizer, writer, scholar and radical political theorist. He is also the author of Decolonizing Dialectics and two books on radical politics in Venezuela, We Created Chavez: A People’s History of the Venezuelan Revolution, and Building The Commune: Radical Democracy in Venezuela.
We talk to Ciccariello-Maher about the current coup attempt in Venezuela, Juan Guaido, Nicolas Maduro, the opposition, and Chavismo in as much complexity as possible. We do so in hopes that this discussion will shed light on some misconceptions, over simplifications, and in the process illuminate different possibilities for solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Venezuela against the forces of global capitalism.
