Is Participatory Democracy the Solution to Venezuela’s Crisis?

During my recent trip to Caracas, Venezuela, I spoke with Atenea Jimenez, the speaker of a Network of Communes.

Atenea argued that collective, grassroots decision-making is the key to solving Venezuela’s crisis.

She also stated that “the biggest fear of all is that a self-proclamation of a president nobody voted for is legitimized.”

My conversation with Atenea can be seen and heard here:
