Life in Venezuela to be subject of talk

NEW HAVEN — Professor Steve Ellner, a Connecticut native, will discuss the present political, economic, and social situation in Venezuela at 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at the People’s Center at 39 Howe St.
A professor at the Universidad de Oriente in Caracas for more than 30 years and a prolific author, he will explore the political status of Chavez, whether the Bolivarian Revolution is democratic, and Chavez’s purported anti-Americanism, organizers said in a statement.
Also, he will discuss Venezuela’s recent election and its implications, whether the lives of the poor/middle class are getting better or worse, and how Venezuela is helping Latin America, the statement said.
The talk is sponsored by the Greater New Haven Peace Council, and light refreshments will be provided.
