Venezuela Speaks on Tour 2010

Venezuela Speaks!: Voices from the Grassroots is a collection of interviews with activists and participants from across Venezuela’s social movements. From community media to land reform; cooperatives to communal councils, from the labor movement to the Afro-Venezuelan network, Venezuela Speaks! sheds light on the complex realities within the Bolivarian Revolution. These interviews offer a compelling oral history of Venezuela's democratic revolution, from the bottom up.

The tour will be held by co-authors, Michael Fox, Carlos Martinez & photographer, Sílvia Leindecker. Venezuelan women’s activist, Yanahir Reyes will join the tour from January 20th- January 30th.  Co-author, JoJo Farrell, may attend sporadic dates in February.
