In this collection of testimonies Venezuelan community leaders share the history of popular movements in Venezuela that pre-date the Chavez administration. These testimonies also reveal the continuous compromises and challenges with the current administration defying the over-simplified representation of Venezuelan popular movements. The testimonies show a complicated Venezuelan reality that the mainstream media frequently overlooks with its exclusive focus on Chavez.
