Beset by growing popular discontent and an economy in ruins, Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution faces one of the toughest times in its 15-year history, raising doubts about whether its socialist leader, President Nicolás Maduro, will be able to complete the remaining five years of his six-year term. That uncertainty, whose outcome could have a dramatic impact on the rest of Latin America, will be the focus of a forum on Friday co-hosted by el Nuevo Herald and the Association of Venezuelan Journalists Abroad (APEVEX).
The forum, which will be in Spanish and moderated by Miami Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer, will include insights from renowned analysts and high-profile representatives of Venezuela’s political opposition. Panelists will discuss the latest developments and trends in Venezuela, including the government’s struggle to overcome one of the worst economic crises in recent history and incessant protest demonstrations to oust the current leadership.
Venezuela 2015: Los escenarios más probables (Venezuela 2015: The More Likely Scenarios) will be livestreamed from 8 to 10 a.m. on Friday, July 11.
Update: The livestream is now complete. Watch below:
