End U.S. Sanctions!
U.S. Hands Off Venezuela!

On Sunday, May 20, presidential elections will take place in Venezuela, but the Trump administration is condemning the election and trying to affect the outcome against President Nicolás Maduro, before it even takes place. Why? Because Maduro, a socialist, is ahead in the polls. The U.S. government has been trying to carry out regime change in Venezuela for years, first against Hugo Chávez and now Maduro. Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution has greatly improved the lives of millions of working-class and poor Venezuelans, by nationalizing the country's natural resources, to benefit the people.

In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of Venezuelan people have been in the streets demonstrating their support for the re-election of President Nicolás Maduro of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).

For too long, the U.S. government has distorted and manipulated Latin American elections, has financed and organized military coups and dictatorships, to dominate the continent.

Latin America is not "the United States' backyard"! Join the rallies in solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution!

Meet at 24th and Mission Sts., 2 pm for a rally. Then join us at 2969 Mission St. afterwards, to watch videos about Venezuela as we await the election returns.

Sponsors of SF event: AIM West, ANSWER Coalition, Bay Area Latin American Solidarity Coalition, Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador-Bay Area; Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee, FMLN-Norte Cal.; La Alianza Hondureña USA Norte Cal, Marcha Patriótica Colombia; Party for Socialism and Liberation; Task Force on the Americas, Workers World Party.
