Samidoun is a strong supporter of the following statement and all actions around the world to stand with the people of Venezuela against U.S. imperialism. Please sign on and join in the actions in your area!

We cannot be silent in the face of the latest U.S. aggression against the Venezuelan people. Nicolás Maduro is the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, chosen twice by the people as part of an internationally observed electoral process. Since the 1998 election of Hugo Chávez, the United States has been relentless in its pursuit of regime change in Venezuela. With Donald Trump in the White House, these efforts have escalated to threats of all-out military violence, the plundering of billions of dollars in wealth from the Venezuelan people and pushing a multitude of outrageous lies in the global media.

For hundreds of years, the U.S. has waged war against the people of the world through coups, invasions and economic warfare. Juan Guaidó is a U.S. puppet. He is not a representative of the Venezuelan masses. The idea that a person can swear themselves in as president at a rally in the interest of “defending democracy” is laughable. The right wing in Venezuela claim the Bolivarian elections are rigged because they refuse to participate in them. Instead they engage in voter intimidation using violence reminiscent of Jim Crow terrorism against African-Americans in the Deep U.S. South.

U.S.-led sanctions and currency manipulation are responsible for the suffering in Venezuela. Marco Rubio and right-wing media guide the Venezuelan opposition from Miami. The U.S. cannot stand for any country on the planet to enjoy its natural wealth or the fruits of its labor independent of Wall Street and the Pentagon. Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves in the world and is rich in gold and other mineral wealth. Iraq war architect John Bolton said that regime change in Venezuela would be a tremendous opportunity to gain more profits for Wall Street. We believe him.

Since the Bolivarian Revolution in 1998, massive strides have been taken to uplift the working class, Afro-Venezuelans and Indigenous populations in Venezuela. The working poor have made tremendous gains because the government implemented policies and passed laws to fight racism, sexism, homophobia and economic inequality. Despite sanctions and sabotage, Venezuela has maintained a transparent and democratic system through many elections. Venezuela provides aid to struggling people worldwide through subsidized fuel and by leading the way with progressive labor laws. Their gains are part of the global struggle waged by workers and the oppressed against the wealthiest and most powerful capitalists on the planet.

Therefore, we demand:

  • The U.S. immediately cease all hostile actions against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela — lift all sanctions, stop backing a coup, cease efforts to destroy the Venezuelan economy and respect the right of the Venezuelan people to self-determination.
  • All countries involved in the plunder of Venezuelan wealth immediately return what they have stolen to the democratically elected government of Venezuela and its people.
  • Wall Street must immediately pay reparations to the Venezuelan people for their suffering under genocidal sanctions and currency manipulation.

In the internationalist and liberatory spirit of Simón Bolívar, we pledge to mobilize and fight on the side of Venezuela’s right to sovereignty, understanding that the gains won under the Bolivarian Revolution are gains for all the world’s workers and oppressed.

Sign on to the statement and get involved to demand: U.S. hands off Venezuela!

Organize internationally coordinated No U.S. War on Venezuela actions on Saturday, February 23, the one-month anniversary of the attempted U.S. right-wing coup. Submit your action details here!

US SOUTHCOM is a nefarious entity whose track-record includes toppling governments throughout Central and South America and the Caribbean, propping up right-wing governments and dictators, arming death-squads throughout the hemisphere, and committing troops to countries within the region.

No to War, NATO & Racism! U.S. Hands off Venezuela!
Friday, February 22 | 6:30pm
First Unitarian Universalist Church – 1000 Blanton Ave, Richmond, VA 23221

On April 4, leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization plan to gather in Washington, D.C., to celebrate NATO’s 70th anniversary. April 4 is the 51st anniversary of the assassination of the Prophet of Peace, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. In response, scores of peace and social justice organizations are planning a week of protest activities around the theme of “No to War, No to NATO, No to Racism!” including a mass march and rally on March 30 which the Virginia Defenders are helping to coordinate.

Meanwhile, Washington is orchestrating a coup against the pro-people government of Venezuela and is openly talking about how U.S. oil companies will benefit from overthrowing President Maduro and his socialist government.

While we fight for justice here at home, we need to also raise our voices about what both the Republicans and the Democrats are doing in our name in other countries. Please come out for a presentation about what NATO is, what it does, how it relates to the developing crises in Venezuela and Ukraine and how all this affects us here at home. Come with your interest, your questions and your desire for peace and justice, at home and abroad.
