Eyewitness: Venezuela Elections

BT News correspondent Kei Pritsker reported on the elections live in Venezuela on our social media pages. Here are some of the highlights.

The Day Before the Election

What’s at stake in Venezuela’s National Assembly elections tomorrow? 107 parties on the ballot. The US government is doubling down in support of the disgraced Guaidó & threatening sanctions on right-wing parties just for participating in elections.

BreakThrough News is building the media arm of the movement. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time.

Think to yourself, is this article something that would be published anywhere other than BreakThrough?

Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through.

Working-class people deserve better, we deserve media for and by us. We are not funded by billionaires or corporations – we are funded by you. Without you, BreakThrough would not be possible, so become a member and build the media arm of the movement with us.
