US sanctions block the Venezuelan people from obtaining food and medicine. They resulted in at least 40,000 deaths between mid-2017 and the end of 2018, according to a study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research – and that was prior to the most severe sanctions, which were announced in January 2019.
VENEZUELANS UNDER SIEGE documents the impacts of the sanctions, plus the ways that ordinary Venezuelans are organising to survive the crisis and build new institutions of participatory socialism.
