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.


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,

    Hands off Venezuela. The actions of the US in undermining the Venzuelan government, interfering in it’s domestic governnce, imposing ILLEGAL sanctions meant to harm Venzuelan people and cause egregious suffering, threatening to steal its resources and public assets, sending in black ops to incite violence in their streets, and trying to overthrow a democratically elected government in a sovereign state are immoral, unethical, illegal and unjustified and plain wrong. The US government is drunk on its power and is commiting criminal acts against the Venezuelan people with impunity. This must stop now.

    According to renowned Professor No am Chomsk. The Republican Party is the most dangerous organization that has existed. Yes there is extraordinary suffering currently in Venezuela and I condemn anybody who purpetreates it. I will not support the Criminal class and there Imperial ambitions in regards to there decades long plan to usurp Venezuelan resources for their own gain. Neoliberal Free Market capitalism is a threat to all that is good in this world. Including the sovereignty of the Venezuelan working class people.

    What a bunch if lies and political propaganda


    Even former Chavez ministers have admitted all the money from the oil sales was lost with corruption. There’s no such a thing as economic sanctions but sanctions to specific people in the government, corrupts and HE violators, who have all his stolen money in US bank accounts. Even the Swiss leak revealed how Venezuela was the 2nd country with money in the HSBC. Lots of former PDVSA officials have been prosecuted for corruption internationally…. all the money stolen, 10 times the Marshall Plan, over $100 a barrel of oil with 3 million production daily and now people is starving
