Venezuela and the Bolivarian Revolution that has empowered the country’s poor and working class is under assault by a U.S.-orchestrated coup effort.
In an unbelievable display of colonial arrogance, the Trump administration has determined that it -- not the people of Venezuela -- has the authority to decide who is the legitimate president. Although it has been concealed by the corporate media, huge numbers of Venezuelans are in the streets expressing their support for President Nicolás Maduro.
It is essential that opponents of U.S. war and empire understand the facts about this engineered crisis in Venezuela and mobilize in solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution.
Rallies have been held in more than 20 cities across the United States demanding "U.S. Hands Off Venezuela and the Bolivarian Revolution!" In San Francisco, approximately 200 people from all over the Bay Area came out to rally and march in the Mission district chanting "Venezuela, Si! Yanqui, No!" and "What do we want? U.S. Out! When do we want it? Now!" It is critical to continue the fight against U.S. imperialist intervention in Venezuela and Latin America.
Join us for a forum on Tuesday, Jan. 29 @ 7pm to learn the facts about Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution, the U.S. attempts at overthrowing the democratically elected government of Nicolás Maduro and what we can do to fight back. A video of the San Francisco March in Solidarity with Venezuela will be shown at this event.
