You’ve probably heard some news of protests in Venezuela that have turned violent. But it’s been hard to get accurate information on the ground. Juan Nagal is the Editor-in-Chief of the blog Caracas Chronicles. He talks to Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa to explain what is happening in streets across Venezuela and why international outlets have been having such a hard time keeping up with the story.
Juan Nagal is a Venezuelan economist. I am the editor of Caracas Chronicles, and the co-author of Blogging the Revolution: Caracas Chronicles and the Hugo Chávez Era. I am also a regular columnist for Foreign Policy. I teach Economics at the Universidad de los Andes in Santiago, Chile.
