It’s not just the U.S. that’s entering election season. In Bolivia, the race has become a struggle over the legitimacy of the coup government, while in Venezuela Juan Guaidó has been abandoned by broad sections of the opposition that has chosen to participate. Eugene and Manolo de los Santos discuss what’s at stake in the elections and how each relates to the people’s struggles in the streets.
This is episode 5 of “The Other Side”, our Patrons-only podcast, brought to you publicly.

At Breakthrough News we believe in the power of independent media. Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. They control the news cycle, to which social media and even most “alternative” media is forced to respond. We are breaking through that cycle.
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.
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.
We can be that media arm, but only with your help. Become a Patron and join us on the front lines in the battle of ideas.
