No US intervention in Venezuela

The U.S. is orchestrating a coup in Venezuela that is likely to lead to bloodshed — even civil war. Instead of meddling the internal affairs of another country, the U.S. should be supporting peaceful dialogue facilitated by mediators such as Mexico, Uruguay, and the Pope. We have seen, and are seeing now at the U.S.-Mexico border, the effects of past U.S. backed coups in Latin America — Guatemala in 1953, Chile in 1973, Honduras in 2009. It always turns out disastrous for the people.

Senator Markley has introduced legislation making it clear to President Trump that without congressional authorization - authorization he does NOT have - he may not use military force in Venezuela. Representative David Cicilline has introduced similar legislation in the House

Send a message to your Senators and Representative telling them to cosponsor S.J.Res.11 in the Senate and H.R.1004 in the House to prevent Trump, Bolton, and Abrams from being able to send the U.S. military to intervene in Venezuela.

If you live in the U.S. please send a direct message to the Democrats below, if you live outside the U.S. please scroll down to sign the petition below:

Overseas supporters can sign this Petition: 

Dear Congress,

The U.S. has a long and sordid history of supporting coups in Latin America — Guatemala in 1953, Chile in 1973, Honduras in 2009 — and it always turned out disastrous for the people. It’s urgent that you not let the Trump administration send the U.S. military to intervene in Venezuela.

U.S. economic sanctions have devastated Venezuela’s economy, creating food and medicine shortages, widespread poverty, and mass migration. The people of Venezuela need sanctions to be lifted and dialogue between the Maduro government and the opposition to be facilitated — Mexico and Uruguay have offered to mediate, as has the Pope. A democratic process, not a coup, must be supported.

Please co-sponsor Senator Jeff Merkley and Representative David Cicilline’s legislation - S.J.Res.11 in the Senate and H.R.1004 in the House - making it clear to President Trump that without congressional authorization, military force may not be used in Venezuela. After becoming an original co-sponsor of the bills, please encourage revision of the bill’’s to include very important language on the harm being done to the Venezuelan people by the sanctions and the need for dialogue - facilitated by Mexico, Uruguay, and the Pope - to move forward to address this crisis, rather than the US coup strategy.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

    It is high time to end U.S. meddling in other countries affairs.it is also high time to abolish the CIA which has been only an instrument of terror the world over for the past 70 years from the very first day it was created. Read the excellent book by Paul Williams, Operation Gladio, to get an idea of CIA terror.

    We have seen this before and it never works out well. Tell Congress: support S.J.Res.11 in the Senate & H.R.1004 in the House - No US military intervention in Venezuela. #HandsOffVenezuela #NoalgolpeenVenezuela Via @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/hands_off_venezuela?recruiter_id=605297

    Thanks to Sen. Merkley for foiling the axis of evil, Pompeo, Bolton and the ghoul, Abrams. One would hope this might be the start of rethinking the impulse to answer the siren call of imperialist adventurism. Thanks, Jeff, for taking that first step.
