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,

    Stay out of the internal affairs of other countries. We, the U.S. have made War a business venture, profiting from sales of guns, ammunition,and military equipment. And then the same U.S. “interest” profit from “rebuilding” the bombed out communities. No regard is given to the destruction of life, human and other wise; much less to the long term contamination of our planet.

    Let us stop this imperial aggression. Venezuelans need to resolve their issues by Venezuelans. Let’s stop the oil grabbers from taking it from Venezuela.

    Maduro may be a crappy leader, but that does not give us the right to invade Venezuela. The real reason Trump wants to invade Venezuela is to obtain that country’s oil.

    Attacking another country is a war crime, something that the US has been doing ever since WW II. Millions die abroad, while large parts of our country become Third World ghettos. Militarism is a social disease.

    Lift sactions and embargos on Venezuela. Do NOT intervene in Venezuela. The UN says it’s illegal and the Red Cross wouldn’t recognize the donations as they had political ties.
