Join us for a report back from US Peace Council delegates about their fact-finding trip trip to Venezuela. Prominent activists Ajamu Baraka and Sara Flounders were in Caracas during the nation-wide black-out. They visited working class neighborhoods, clinics and "collectivos" to see first hand how people are dealing with the sanctions. What do ordinary Venezuelans think of Maduro? Bring your questions!
