Join us on March 9 for a march and rally against the Trump administration’s effort to engineer a coup in Venezuela and a new devastating war there. The aggressive policy against Venezuela repeats the ugly pattern of wars for regime change in the oil-rich countries of Iraq and Libya.
National Security Advisor John Bolton is reading from the same script, declaring a “troika of tyranny” in Latin America (like George W. Bush’s “axis of evil”) as a precursor for regime change first in Venezuela, and then Cuba and Nicaragua. Trump officials are openly talking about seizing Venezuela’s vast oil reserves — the largest in the world.
It is time to stand up and with a clear voice say NO to the newest example of the “Monroe Doctrine,” which the U.S. government has used for over two centuries to repeatedly invade Latin America and Caribbean, control its politics and extract its resources.
The White House aims to overthrow the government of President Nicolás Maduro and replace him with Juan Guaidó. Guaidó is a U.S.-trained operative who was unknown to the vast majority of Venezuelans before he proclaimed himself president — at Vice President Mike Pence’s urging. Although Guaidó has the backing of Trump, the CIA, and the Republican and Democratic Party leaderships alike, huge numbers of Venezuelans have marched to reject this coup and defend their independence.
The San Francisco action will be held in conjunction with the National March on Washington on March 16.
