Venezuela has organized all kinds of events this month! They had a forum on the US elections that had more than 50 attendees, a film forum on the fall of the Berlin Wall followed by a representation of the wall which was demolished to symbolize the fall of socialism at that time.
They continued with their social media campaign #PorUnaVenezuelaLibre (#ForAFreeVenezuela) and with their regular event “coffee and ideas.” There were a lot of talks and lectures at universities. Amazing work they do in Venezuela!
