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,

    So, you call yourselves freedom fighters, and create a campaign supporting a dictator like Maduro who’s killing his own people, who have created the worst inflation ever in the country, who has tons of people dying out of hunger? I am Venezuelan born, and your campaign is like supporting Fidel, Putin, Kim Jong Un, or any other massive freedom suppressor dictator. You girls have it so wrong it hurts.

    Code Pink now has blood on their hands supporting this tyranny that has murdered so many peaceful protesters, before in silence, today on live TV worldwide. You are now war criminals and deserve to be punished as such.

    I don’t understand why Codepink supports Maduro. His term ended and he never called for elections.

    By the constitution the presidency is vacant and the head of Congress becomes an interim president to call for new elections.

    There is no coup supported by anyone.

    Actually the “support” of Trump and his sidekicks have hurt the opposition.

    Why does the US have to interfere and undermine other countries’ governments?

    Trump has made it loud and clear that he’s more concerned with the preservation of Capitalism in America than the welfare and independence of those in non-Capitalist countries. I wouldn’t trust his reasonings for intervention for a second.

    It is necessary and urgent that the US understands, once and for all, that it must respect the sovereignty, independence and self-determination of the peoples; in addition to respect international law. History has shown that whenever the US intervenes in another country “it leaves it turned into a cemetery or into an asylum”

    We are a country of peace, our army has only crossed our borders to liberate ever to oppress. We went to elections on May 20, 2018 and we elected mostly President Maduro and we want our sovereign and free decision to be respected. A country that liberated 5 nations from the Spanish yoke, does not require interference of any kind
