[Act Out! 200] - Hiding Colombia’s Human Rights Nightmares in a Venezuelan Coup

It can – and should be said that our imperialist coups are never about democracy, but more so about protecting our investments, killing the threat of a good example, and of spinning a media tale to veil the extreme failures of our own government – our own lack of democracy. In this week's special episode, we sit down with two women from Colombia to hear about the violence and oppression that they face, and the connection to US foreign policy and corporate malfeasance. Meanwhile, the Colombian president sets his sights on Venezuela, leaving his own people and indeed the Venezuelan people in dire straits.
