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,

    Venezuela deserves a fair and just leadership. I have visited many times to Caracas but now I cannot do so with family in Maracaibo.

    The U.S. government must stop all hostilities against Venezuela. The Venezuelan people have the right to build a better society free from U.S. control, domination and exploitation.

    Long live Chavez! Long live the Bolivarian revolution. U.S. out of Latin America.

    It is time to NOT get involved in the affairs of foreign countries like Venezuela, like Israel, etc. If we continue to either bail them out either financially or militarily they will never figure out how to solve their biggest problems on their own. Venezuela created the mess their in by telling it’s citizens exactly what they wanted to hear while in reality doing the exact opposite. As for Israel we have been covering their asses financially for far too long with tax payer dollars to support their military which they have been using for a very long time to keep the Palestinian people from being able to live a peaceful existence. I personally think it time to cut Israel loose and let them pay for their war themselves and return the funds back to the American people whether through a tax rebate or adding it to the Social Security fund, so that there is no longer ANY excuse to not expand it and other social assistance programs.
