On Tuesday, March 9, CODEPINK Congress will focus on the urgent need to lift illegal US sanctions against Venezuela, a country suffering from a lack of medicine, medical supplies, and vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link!
We will be joined by three guests: Carlos Ron, Venezuelan Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs for North America and President of the Simon Bolivar Institute for Peace and Solidarity among Peoples; Lorena Gimenez of Género Con Clase, a feminist human rights organization; and Leonardo Flores, a coordinator of CODE PINK’s Latin America campaign.
Michelle Ellner, also a coordinator of our Latin America campaign, will co-host the evening along with Medea Benjamin, Marcy Winograd, and Hanieh Jodat Barnes.
Following our guests’ presentations and Q & A, we will ask the Biden administration and Congress to lift the sanctions impeding COVID relief for Venezuela and to end illegal sanctions on multiple countries.
