Upcoming Hands Off Venezuela Meeting in San Francisco
Bay Area Residents to Plan Support of People and Government of Venezuela
The Hands Off Venezuela Campaign has started meeting in San Francisco to try and raise awareness about the inspiring events in Venezuela and to organize against the threats against them from the US government. Two years after the unsuccessful military coup against the democratically elected government of Venezuela, headed by President Hugo Chavez, the US still appears to be threatening the Venezuelan government. Many US representatives, including Condoleezza Rice, have called Chavez a "negative force" in the region. Hands Off Venezuela says, "The underlying motivation of the US government is clear: the Chavez government has been shifting the benefits from the country's oil wealth from the rich giant corporations to the vast majority of the population by providing food, housing, health care and education... we believe it is vitally necessary for all those in the US and around the world to affirm Venezuela's right to determine its own destiny by joining forces to forge a resistance to the US government's aggressive aims."

San Francisco Bay Area Hands Off Venezuela will hold its next meeting on Thursday, June 9th, at 7pm in Centro del Pueblo's auditorium, at 474 Valencia St in San Francisco. At the meeting, a report on recent developments by Sonia Zerpa, a resident of Caracas, Venezuela will be presented. Read more
