Venezuela from the Inside

The Venezuelan crisis continues.

 

As Nicolás Maduro and Juan Guaidó prepare for a new round of negotiations next week, the Venezuelan economy plummets further into chaos and refugees continue to flee the country en masse.  Among the four million Venezuelans who have fled Venezuela over the past four years are an estimated 500 journalists, including CNN journalist Laura Weffer Cifuentes.  The last straw? Not being able to obtain medicine for her family.  

 

On Thursday, August 29 at the law firm of Smith Gambrell and Russell (SGR) in Midtown from 5:45 PM to 7:30 PM, Laura Weffer will share her unique perspective as a recently exiled Venezuelan journalist now working for CNN en Español in Atlanta.

 

We invite you to hear what is happening on the ground – in Venezuela – not from an outsider looking in, but from an insider who got out. A Venezuelan who was not only trying to do her job as a journalist under an increasingly repressive government, but also trying her best to survive.
