  • Austerity or Grexit: A False Dichotomy

    Greece has shown the world that there is an alternative to austerity: wresting power from the hands of elites, corporations and banks through the reassertion of democratic control.

  • Rehumanizing Gaza

    Reducing Palestinians to heroes capable of resisting Israel's military and failing to see their home as a community seeking connections with the outside world contributes to Gaza's dehumanization.

Hugo Chávez was the President of Venezuela from 1999 until his death in 2013. To discuss the legacy of Chavez, I talk with Kevin Zeese, who states that "The death of Hugo Chávez is a great loss to the people of Venezuela who he lifted out of poverty and brought a deep participatory democracy. He was a leader who in unity with the people was able to free Venezuela from the grips of US Empire, brought dignity to poor and working class, and was central to a Latin American revolt against US domination."
