Protest & Petition Delivery at the U.S. Mission to the UN in NYC: Defend Venezuela’s Sovereignty!

Join us for a demonstration on Monday, June 24 at 4 pm EST in front of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in New York City to deliver a petition signed by hundreds of organizations and individuals demanding respect for Venezuela’s sovereignty and the international protection of President Nicolás Maduro under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes Against Internationally Protected Persons.

Since the Bolivarian Revolution came to power in the late 90s, the United States has not ceased its attacks against the Latin American integration project. Assassination attempts first against President Chávez and now against President Maduro, sanctions against the oil industry, electrical sabotage and all kinds of hybrid warfare continue to target Venezuela’s sovereign people and government.In the last 8 months there have been six assassination attempts against President Maduro, each pointing to different North American agencies as the intellectual authors of those attacks. Venezuela wants peace and does not need more North American intervention. 

Our demands are simple: peace, respect for Venezuelan sovereignty and the life of President Maduro. The consequences of his assassination would be catastrophic for Venezuela and for the entirety of Latin America. Join organizations across North America in a Day of Action for Venezuelan Sovereignty!

CODEPINK and Venezuela Solidarity Network are calling on all supporters of Venezuelan sovereignty to join a day of actions across North America on June 24th!

  • Hands Off Venezuela!
  • Sanctions Kill!
  • End Sanctions On Venezuela!

That day VSN will deliver a letter to the United Nations signed by hundreds of organizations and individuals demanding respect for Venezuelan sovereignty! The letter also calls for an end to the assassination attempts on the democratically elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, whose life has been threatened by several U.S. assassination attempts this year alone!

Why June 24th?
It was on June 24th, 1821 in the immortal field of Carabobo, Venezuela that the Republican army – under the command of Simón Bolívar, The Liberator – masterfully defeated the Spanish troops and consolidated the independence of Venezuela! 203 years later we continue in his tradition, fighting for our definitive independence from modern empires!

Join us from wherever you are with some kind of activity in solidarity using the slogans and demands above. Protests and highway bannerings are amazing, but social media posts with the hashtags #HandsOffVenezuela #SanctionsKill #EndSanctionsOnVenezuela show solidarity too!
