"Chavez Has A Present In Venezuela" On Venezuela, The Present As Struggle Part 2 with Cira Pascual Marquina and Chris Gilbert
Listen now
In part two of our discussion here, we ask Pasqual Marquina and Gilbert why Chavez continues to be such an important figure for the left in Venezuela years after his death. We also talk about tendencies within the left that can tend to denounce or renounce state power. The editors discuss critiques within the book related to clientelism, and their thoughts on role of the party and of direct democracy - and the voices of the people - in a revolutionary process.
