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:

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,

    Back talks not heavy-handed intervention and cruel sanctions. Citgo’s profits should be returned to Venezuela. Chavez had more compassion for our poor in winter than our own gov’t. Follow Mexico’s lead.

    The U.S. government must put an end to interventions in foreign lands, by all means, whether military or other.

    Congressional Representative:


    With the history of imperialism and Regime Change, done at the behest of our corporate interests and not with a respect for the interests of sovereign countries and their people, the United States has orchestrated blood shed throughout Latin America, the Middle East, Asia & Africa.


    The United States cannot afford more human capital; we have no right or authority to be the bullies of the world.


    I do not want my tax dollars to be used to push an inhumane & abusive policy in yet, another country in Latin America — the United States has enough blood on its hands. The people have the last word and we say: HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!


    Thank you.
