The extreme right opposition will be participating in the November 21 mega-elections, rather than boycotting, for the first time in years.

If the extreme right does well, the US and its sycophantic press will proclaim that socialism has failed in Venezuela and the (in fact, blackmailed) people have spoken. If the extreme right does poorly, the US and its allies will visit even more misery on Venezuela, claiming the true voice of the people had been suppressed. Our speaker, Roger Harris, will report back on his observation of the elections in Venezuela and what the popular movements and their leadership have accomplished.

Roger D. Harris is a member of the ICSS program committee. He is active with the human rights organization, the Task Force on the Americas, and is on the executive committee of the US Peace Council. His political writings may be found at Counterpunch, Dissident Voice, Mint Press News, Popular Resistance, and the Orinoco Tribune.
