Miami Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart will be the featured speaker next weekend at a local forum on Venezuela.
The community outreach event, sponsored by the Miami-Dade Republican Party, will take place Nov. 18 at Arepazo #2, a Doral Venezuelan eatery. Sponsoring the event are local Republican state lawmakers who could also drop by.
"The oppression, corruption, and assaults on Venezuela's democratic institutions under Maduro's rule must end," Diaz-Balart said in a statement provided by the party, referring to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. "I look forward to events such as this that bring together leaders from all sectors of society so that we can join together in the cause of promoting basic rights and liberties in Venezuela."
