The head of Venezuela’s mission in Australia says the country remains under attack from the United States, Chris Slee reports.
La Trobe University Latin American studies lecturer Ralph Newmark told a meeting of 80 people on February 20 that the English-speaking media misrepresents the causes of the crisis in Venezuela.
The meeting was organised by the newly-formed Venezuela Solidarity Campaign.
Newmark said the crisis is being caused by external pressure from the United States and internally by the Venezuelan middle and upper class who oppose the government’s pro-poor measures.
