What brought about the parliamentary coup against Peruvian President Pedro Castillo? James Early, former director of Cultural Heritage Policy at the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage at the Smithsonian Institution and board member of the Institute for Policy Studies, breaks it down. He explains what it means for Latin America's Pink Tide in an interview with Jacqueline Luqman and Sean Blackmon on Radio Sputnik's afternoon program, "By Any Means Necessary."
Popular action undid the United States' 2002 attempted coup against Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Twenty years later, the Bolivarian Republic held an international summit commemorating those events, writes Jacqueline Luqman.
Toward Freedom Board Member Jacqueline Luqman recently returned from a trip to Venezuela to take part in commemorations for the 20th anniversary of the defeat of the U.S. coup to oust then-President Hugo Chavez. Back in the United States, Jacqueline interviewed Venezuelan diplomat Carlos Ron on the Black Power Media YouTube channel.
