THE VENEZUELAN ENCOUNTER
A challenge changing power structures
“Worldwide, power is shifting from brawn to brains, from entrenched dictators to people in town squares and cyberspace. It’s happening in Venezuela now!” So writes Jack Hardy, coordinator for our Association of Former Intelligence Association’s meeting to be held at 2:00 p.m., April 19, 2014, at Kennebunk High School.
This insiders’ report on Venezuela and the popular uprising against the Maduro regime will be made possible through Skype with three participants at three locations:
