EMERGENCY RESPONSE! Join CODEPINK at the Global Day of Protest against the unilateral, coercive U.S. financial and economic blockade of Venezuela. This genocidal policy is just the latest attempt by Trump and his rabid staff of war-mongers to pursue a dangerous regime change agenda, which has racked up nothing but failures for the administration thus far. Let's demonstrate our respect for Venezuela's sovereignty, and show our solidarity with the people who are standing up to this attack. Hands Off Venezuela!
On Monday, August 5 the Trump Administration issued an Executive Order expanding sanctions on Venezuela. The Order was effective Tuesday, August 6. Yesterday, CODEPINK held a press conference in front of the White House in conjunction with ANSWER Coalition, Black Alliance for Peace, and two Embassy Protectors to denounce what is now a full blockade/quarantine on Venezuela.
