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,

    If we don’t support democratic forces abroad we are allowing other countries’ autocrats to oppress and exploit their people. What would Washington, Jefferson, & Lincoln say about us? Nothing good.

    We now are giving more of our tax dollars to the MIC because our companies think they have a right to oil in every country in the world. That our companies have a right to make weapons so we need to have wars so they can continue to make weapons. We spend more of our tax dollars on the destruction of other governments and countries then we do on education, healthcare, research, eviroment, food safety. WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO TOPPLE VENEZUELA"S ELECTED GOVERNMENT.

    Ask Trump to act as he said during his fight against Hillary in 2016 : pull off foreign countries and mind US business in the US. STOP sanctions hurting the people in Venezuela.

    No coup,we need to allow Venezuela to be it’s own democracy.

    We need to not create more war,more pollution,more destabilizing situations

    We need to focus on climate destruction and a Green New Deal

    No more war no more military interventions audit the military now
