    I hope that our USA system puts all of these terrorists behind bars and make them pay moral and physical damages were created during their invasion to the Venezuela Embassy. I am an USA citizen and Venezuelan, and I am very upset to see that these kind people in our USA disturbing the peace of our environment.

    Stay strong CODEPINK. You will be remembered and viewed as virtuous in the eyes of future historians. It would be an honor for me to join you guys in D.C. protesting against the public crimes of the U.S. government.

    Thanks for your email.
    As the Balto. Sun has no coverage of the embassy situation,
    I’ve been wondering about its status. Keep up the good work.
    Will contribute $20.00

    Maria Pace: Codepink has never said the Maduro government is made up of good people. Their point is that the U.S. is interfering with a sovereign nation and has no right to do so. How would we feel in the U.S. if Venezuela bullied us over our elections? This is an issue for Venezuela and for international bodies like the UN. Furthermore, I’m sure conditions are terrible in Venezuela. None of us want that. But, if you look at the U.S. record in Latin America, if they get their puppet, right-wing government (of Guaido) into power, things will get even worse. This has been proven again and again by the U.S. Codepink and others are not Venezuela’s enemies. They care about the people. Sometimes you have to stand by the people’s vote even if you don’t like it. But one step at a time; the ultimate goal is for the Venezuelan people to have total freedom and good lives, and have candidates who are honest and decent. Thank you.

    The U.S. decides who it wants leading other nations. Can you imagine another country trying to interfere in U.S. affairs like that? It’s insane hypocrisy. As Noam Chomsky says (paraphrase): If we do it, it’s virtuous. If they do it, it’s a crime.

    My very best to all who are in the embassy. I will be calling my reps to help add to the pressure on our government.
