Venezuela has an anti-blockade law the government says will help circumvent US sanctions. But some argue it is a departure from the socialist policies of former president Hugo Chávez, writes Federico Fuentes.

Green Left sits down with Federico Fuentes to discuss the Bolivian elections, the role and character of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) and why the coup was defeated.

Bolivians have overwhelmingly voted the left-wing Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) back into office in a resounding reversal of last year’s coup, writes Federico Fuentes.

Venezuela is no stranger to protests. But, unlike other recent protests, today the country is witnessing a wave of "protests of the poor" driven by the difficult situation people face, reports Federico Fuentes.

Protesters gathered in front of the Opera House to denounce human rights violations and demand Bolivia’s October 18 elections be held under free and fair conditions, reports Federico Fuentes.

Just weeks out from the October 18 elections, Bolivia’s coup government is again in crisis after the departure of three ministers over an attempt to privatise an electricity company, writes Federico Fuentes.

Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network national co-convenor and Green Left journalist Federico Fuentes speaks about Venezuela's response to COVID-19.

Venezuela is confronting COVID-19 amid foreign sanctions, mercenary incursions and rising incidents of looting and riots. Green Left’s Federico Fuentes speaks to National Network of Commune Activists spokesperson Atenea Jiménez about the situation on the ground.

Federico Fuentes compares how the left-wing government of Venezuela and the right-wing coup government of Bolivia are responding to the COVID-19 epidemic.

Given the exponentially rising death toll from COVID-19 and the devastating social and economic effects of brutal lockdowns, what could a humane and progressive response to the global pandemic look like?

Federico Fuentes outlines a detailed and comprehensive plan for tackling COVID-19 developed by Bolivia’s Movement Towards Socialism (MAS).

Key to Venezuela's success to date in quashing the coronavirus have been the existing community organisations that permeate Venezuelan society. To get a sense of how the local communities are coping with the pandemic, Green Left’s Federico Fuentes spoke to Altos de Lidice Commune spokesperson Gsus Garcia.

Despite a deep economic recession, a profound political crisis and international sanctions that have ravaged its health sector, the South American nation of Venezuela is demonstrating that prioritising lives is possible in the battle against COVID-19, writes Federico Fuentes.

With Spain in lock down, Federico Fuentes spoke to Green Left European correspondent Dick Nichols, who is based in Barcelona, about the grim reality on the ground and how, among the sorrow, examples of people’s solidarity are shining through.

As the United States ratchets up its sanctions on Venezuela, organisations in Australia are stepping up efforts to promote people-to-people solidarity, writes Federico Fuentes.

Green Left is pleased to announce the formation of the Global Ecosocialist Network. We encourage all readers to support this important initiative to strengthen ecosocialist collaboration around the world, write Susan Price and Federico Fuentes.

One of the sectors hardest hit by Venezuela's economic crisis is the nation’s LGBTI community. Lacking access to life-saving medicines and denied certain rights, activists say there is still much to be done within the revolution, writes Federico Fuentes.
