Andrés Guilarte: The Fall of Venezuela

Dec 6, 2021
6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Davis Center 419 (Mildred Livak Room)

Andrés Guilarte is a political activist for the freedom of Venezuela. Andrés had to leave his life in Venezuela after an oppressive regime crippled the economy, caused widespread starvation, blanketed the nation in blackouts, and silenced and jailed those who dared to speak out and criticize the government.
Only a few years ago, Andrés was a university student, studying international relations at the Central University of Venezuela. On top of exams and typical college student concerns, Andrés¿ studies were interrupted by tear gas as government officials targeted students on campus. He spent his college years advocating for his fellow students and fighting back against the rise of tyranny and erosion of freedoms. Today, he continues to push back against the rise of government control by touring the US sharing his story.
