Around the world, nearly one-third of the world’s population are subjected to U.S. sanctions — often joined by Canada — causing economic and social devastation. Learn about the effects of sanctions and the resistance, from Gaza, Palestine, to Venezuela and beyond.

Join us for a discussion with Charlotte Kates, international coordinator of Samidoun, who just returned from a fact-finding mission to Venezuela with the International People’s Tribunal on U.S. Imperialism.

We’ll discuss the situation in Venezuela, in Palestine, and how we can organize together and build anti-imperialist resistance to break the blockade on Gaza, defeat sanctions on Venezuela and build alliances for meaningful change. We will also discuss the imprisonment of Venezuelan diplomat Alex Saab in the U.S. and the connection with the over 5,000 Palestinian political prisoners struggling for liberation.
