CPR on Nigeria, Burundi, and Venezuela


Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org and journalist and broadcaster Don DeBar discuss on CPR on Sunday, January 3, 2016, the latest developments in Africa and Latin America.

Eric and Don discuss the killing of Nigerian Shi’ites and followers of Sheikh Zakzaky by the Nigerian military. Draitser argues that this is part of a broader proxy conflict between Saudi Arabia/Qatar and Iran for influence in geopolitically significant countries. Eric provides an overview of the unrest in Burundi and explains why this African country has been targeted by the forces of neocolonialism and Empire. Toward the end of the program, Eric and Don discuss the situation in Latin America as US-backed right wing political forces take center stage in Argentina and Venezuela.
