From community media to land reform, cooperatives to communal councils, from the labor movement to the Afro-Venezuelan network, Venezuela Speaks! sheds light on the complex realities within the Bolivarian Revolution.

While Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez continues to capture headlines, a much larger story involving a wider cast of characters has gone largely ignored. Venezuela Speaks!, published by PM Press, is a collection of interviews with activists and participants from across Venezuela’s social movements. From community media to land reform, cooperatives to communal councils, from the labor movement to the Afro-Venezuelan network, Venezuela Speaks! sheds light on the complex realities within the Bolivarian Revolution.

Join co-authors, Carlos Martinez and Michael Fox, for a series of presentations across the Northeastern United States. Venezuelan women's activist, Yanahir Reyes, and book photographer, Sílvia Leindecker, will also be joining the co-authors. For a full tour schedule, visit PM Press.

Reyes is the co-founder of a feminist radio program in the Caracas-based community radio station Radio Perola. She will talk in depth about the process of constructing popular power in Venezuela and the achievements and challenges facing the women’s movement. Leindecker is a Brazilian photographer and documentary filmmaker. Along with Michael Fox, she is the co-director of Beyond Elections: Redefining Democracy in the Americas (PM Press 2008).

"Michael Fox, Carlos Martinez and JoJo Farrell cut through the mist that usually surrounds discussions of Venezuela to enter a world of impressive political and cultural diversity. Venezuela Speaks! is a geography of struggle, a sociology of passion, and an ethnography of hope, of the unrelenting insistence that people have a right to control their own lives, and in doing so, a better world will be made." -Greg Grandin, author of Empire's Workshop: Latin America, the United States, and the Rise of the New Imperialism.
