Tuesday February 2, 7 pm Eastern time
Monica Palacios is the Unión por la Esperanza (UNES) party candidate for National Assembly candidate for Ecuadorans in North America. UNES is the present pro-Rafael Correa party. She will be interviewed by Joe Emersberger, frequent writer on Ecuador author (with Justin Podur) of forthcoming book Extraordinary Threat : The U.S. Empire, the Media, and Twenty Years of Coup Attempts in Venezuela.
On February 7 Ecuador holds its election for president. The leading candidate is Andres Arauz of UNES, a political ally of former President Rafael Correa, whose has been a target of a frame-up by present President Lenin Moreno. Arauz’s election would mean Ecuador would return to the orbit of Latin America’s socialist and progressive nations, joining Bolivia, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua.
There will be simultaneous translation.
