Former mayor of Caracas Antonio Ledezma describes the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and the erosion of democracy taking place in the country. Ledezma took the stage just eight days after Nicolas Maduro won a presidential election in Venezuela that was neither free nor fair. In his talk, Ledezma explains in detail how the Maduro regime governs with impunity the fate of millions of Venezuelans by using violence, famine, and death as weapons against its own people.
