Max Blumenthal and the Venezuelan flag
Steve Topple


Venezuela is currently in the headlines. But the mainstream media narrative isn’t always as it seems. Much of the coverage has been skewed against president Nicolás Maduro and his government.

So, Canary journalist and broadcaster Steve Topple spoke to international journalist and trailblazer Max Blumenthal. He is currently on the ground in Venezuela, observing the political, economic and social situation. In an overarching, must-listen interview, Topple and Blumenthal discuss the current crisis, what ordinary citizens in Venezuela are saying and the torrid history of US-led corporate interventionism.

It’s essential listening:

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
