Emergency Action: Say No to the U.S. Orchestrated Right-Wing Coup in Venezuela! Respect Venezuela’s Sovereignty and Democracy! U.S. Out of Latin America!
The Trump administration is actively supporting an attempted right-wing coup against democratically-elected President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela. He declared recognition of an opposition right-wing, Juan Guaidó, the opening shot at “regime change.” This is extremely dangerous and we urge all peace-loving people to come out to protest U.S. coup plots and in defense of President Maduro’s government and Venezuela’s sovereignty.
The right-wing coup plotters inside Venezuela are being directed from the White House, with Pres. Donald Trump, Vice-Pres. Mike Pence, Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Adviser John Bolton calling for Maduro’s overthrow. If the U.S. succeeds in its illegal plans, there would be a major destabilization and possible war in the region, with devastating effects for tens of millions of people in Venezuela and Latin America. For years, the U.S. government has imposed crushing economic sanctions on the country, robbing the Venezuelan people of billions in revenues, denying them food, medicine and other needs, and then cynically blaming Venezuela as being solely responsible for its economic crisis.
WHY IS THE U.S. PLOTTING AGAINST PRESIDENT MADURO AND HIS GOVERNMENT?
Ever since President Hugo Chávez took office in 1999, and with Maduro’s succession, the Bolivarian government of Venezuela has worked hard to provide for the people, creating a free healthcare system for the Venezuelan people, has built 2.5 MILLION homes that have benefited 10 million people, and built tens of new universities for free higher education. These benefits are financed by Venezuela’s oil, because the revolutionary government has guaranteed that the oil resources belong to the people, not to U.S. oil companies. Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world. The U.S. machinations are part of a larger regional counterrevolutionary attempt, against Nicaragua, against Cuba and all of Latin America.
THE DANGER OF A COUP IS REAL —
IT IS TIME TO SAY NO TO U.S. INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA AND ALL LATIN AMERICA!
JOIN US IN THE ACTION TO SAY: STOP THE U.S. COUP PLOTS AGAINST PRESIDENT MADURO AND THE VENEZUELAN PEOPLE, LIFT THE ECONOMIC SANCTIONS, RESPECT VENEZUELA’S SOVEREIGNTY!
