The undersigned Justice Advocates and Progressive Organizations:
Strongly condemn United States Vice-President Mike Pence’s statement advocating the overthrow of democratically elected Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
The statement by the United States Vice-President violates International Law and Regulations and disrespects Venezuela right to self-determination, and sovereignty.
We denounce the Canadian government’s efforts to interfere in Venezuela’s internal affairs and denounce the lack of respect it has shown to Venezuela’s right to self-determination.
We oppose the sanctions imposed on the people of Venezuela and we call on the Canadian government to stop interfering in Venezuela national affairs.
We stand for principles of international accords, treaties, and agreements, as well as for the United Nations General Assembly Resolutions against acts that attempt to destabilize democratic governments.
We call on the International community to oppose and condemn the actions of the United States, against democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro.
We stand with those countries, governments, and heads of state who have expressed their support for Venezuela’s Democracy and its democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro.
Decades of disastrous U.S. military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libia, Syria, and Palestine demonstrate how wrong US foreign policy has been.
U.S. Foreign policy is responsible for millions of civilian deaths, ravaged countries, and the ongoing chaos that has replaced functioning democracies.
Venezuela is investing its oil revenue and other resources in social programs such as public housing, education, health, and gender equality; in spite of or maybe because of that, the United States is publicly declaring Venezuela a dictatorship and once again showing that it does not respect the sovereign democracy of other countries nor their right to self-determination.
NO TO U.S. MILITARY INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA
NO TO THE U.S. DISASTROUS FOREIGN POLICY
LONG LIVE TO BOLIVARIAN VENEZUELA DEMOCRACY
LONG LIVE PRESIDENT MADURO
