From the country with the biggest oil reserves in the world to people starving. Venezuela is in a deep humanitarian crisis. What happened?
Since May, the people of Venezuela have been protesting against their president Nicola Maduro. Just three weeks ago, the opposition leader Juan Guaidó was declared interim president – against the will of Maduro of course. So now there’s not only a humanitarian crisis but a severe political crisis in Venezuela. These specific events give us a good opportunity to look beyond mainstream media’s extensive coverage to elaborate the trends that have shaped the situation in Venezuela for many years and break down dominant narratives.
We bring to you a personal story from Kim, a fellow journalism student from Venezuela. Also we look at different countries’ reaction to the crisis, and discuss the often quoted “failure of yet another socialist state”.
Tune in!
