While we watch the defeat of U.S. imperialism in Venezuela unfold, we remember that on April 30, 1975, Victory in Vietnam Day and the Eve of May Day, International Workers’ Day, the workers and peasants of Vietnam defeated the mightiest, deadliest war machine since that of Nazi Germany, namely that of American imperialism, at the cost of the lives of 3 million Vietnamese, 1 million Cambodians, 1 million Laotians, 58,000 Americans and thousands of other people.
While we watch the defeat of U.S. imperialism in Venezuela unfold, we remember that on April 30, 1975, Victory in Vietnam Day and the Eve of May Day, International Workers’ Day, the workers and peasants of Vietnam defeated the mightiest, deadliest war machine since that of Nazi Germany, namely that of American imperialism, at the cost of the lives of 3 million Vietnamese, 1 million Cambodians, 1 million Laotians, 58,000 Americans and thousands of other people.

On April 30, 2019, the Venezuelan workingclass defeated American imperialism again, the same fascist war machine that is proudly supported by both the Democrat and Republican parties and their lickspittle capitalist press, including Nazi Trump and millionaire Speaker of the House, San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi, as the entire capitalist class only cares about maximizing its profits, the greatest profits being in munitions and oil, the only reason the military exists.

We danced in the streets around the world, including in Berkeley, California, on Victory in Vietnam Day, the and workers of the world are celebrating this latest defeat of US imperialism in Venezuela.

The struggle is not over. Nazi Trump is screaming for a total blockade on Cuba. The Venezuelan CIA puppets in the US are attacking the protectors of the US embassy in Washington DC, prompting a call from ANSWER to defend the protectors. See https://twitter.com/answercoalition

You can continue to follow the struggle and read the quotable quotes of the Democrat-Republicans who support attacking the democratically elected government of Nicholas Maduro of Venezuela on the following. Even if you do not know Spanish, the pictures speak a thousand words. There are plenty of tweets that have English comments:
