Now is the time for the rest of the world to cut ties with El Sistemamain
The Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro has moved swiftly after the death of Jose Antonio Abreu to take state control of the music education foundation, El Sistema.
The new head of El Sistema is Delcy Rodriguez, a former propaganda minister who is now president of Maduro’s laughably-named Constitutional Assembly. There are three other members of the board of directors. One of them is Maduro’s son.
This regime is starving its citizens into submission for the benefit of a clique of kleptocrats.
Now is the time for the rest of the world to cut its ties with El Sistema.
(That means you, Julian, and you, Nicky).
