This week, as part of the Global Research News Hour's summer series, we bring a talk by Julia Buxton, Professor of Comparative Politics at Central European University's School of Public Policy, and Senior Research Associate at the Global Drug Policy Observatory, Swansea University. A specialist on Latin America and an expert on Venezuela, Professor Buxton traces some of the history of Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution and noting its failure to address repression and social violence within State institutions. She muses with some pessimism on the prospects for progressive advancements at the current historical moment.
This lecture was delivered as part of the University of Manitoba's Geopolitical Economy Research Group's Revolutions Conference, held in Winnipeg September 29th to October 1st.

At around 4 mins, 13 secs, there is a use of the F word, though it is carefully muted so an astute listener would know what was said. Unlikely to offend.
