The Democratic Rebellion

Julio Borges

Venezuelan opposition lawmaker Julio Borges talks about his experience being attacked by members of the ruling political party in his country after protesting a ban on opposition members speaking in the National Assembly. Borges—still bearing bruises and scars from the attack on his face—offers a different version of the Bolivarian Revolution than the official government line, one that exposes the rampant poverty, food shortages, and unemployment in the petroleum rich country. He believes the regime is unsustainable and hopes to “move the conscience of the Venezuelan people” and ignite change.
