Rising Up With Sonali

Venezuela’s Maduro Faces Uncertain Future; Bundy Brothers Acquitted As #NODAPL Activists Evicted.

anti_nicolas_maduro_14_ws-765x496Venezuela faces fresh protests after right wing opposition groups took to the streets against President Nicolas Maduro, who is being labeled a dictator. We’ll speak with Miguel Tinker Salas to get a balanced and truthful view of what’s really happening in Venezuela – a perspective you won’t get in the New York Times. And, Arun Gupta, our news correspondent will join us in studio to discuss the Bundy Brothers’ acquittal, the Dakota Access protests, labor organizing, and more. And, with just about a week before the general election, we’ll speak with one grassroots activist about why she is running for city council and the importance of down-ticket voting.
