Anti-Semitism in Venezuela

Venezuelan student activist Diego Scharifker discusses his involvement with the burgeoning youth movement and the frightening growth of anti-semitism in his country. Scharifker describes how the Venezuelan government shut down an independent television station and students took to the streets in protest. While the regime of Hugo Chávezattempted to smear the protest’s leaders with anti-semitic attacks, the movement only grew stronger. Scharifker states that it has developed into an all-inclusive democratic movement that has been crucial in exposing Chavez’authoritarian rule.
