Tell the State Department: Accept the Protecting Power Agreement Re Venezuela

Breaking news: The governments of Venezuela and Turkey have agreed to sign a Protecting Power Agreement that would allow the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC to be under the charge of the Turkish government. To be operative, however, it must be approved by the State Department. Please sign this petition urging the State Department to give its approval.

It is in the U.S. interest to approve this agreement because then the Venezuelan government will approve a similar Protecting Power Agreement reached between the United States and Switzerland to give the Swiss government control of the US Embassy in Caracas and provide critical functions such as assisting U.S. citizens.

There are disagreements within the US government, however, with the John Bolton faction wanting to hand the Venezuela Embassy over to the representatives of opposition leader Juan Guaidó, even though they have no control inside Venezuela and would not be able to carry out any of the functions of an embassy. We must convince the more rational members of the Trump administration that approving the Protecting Power Agreement between Venezuela and Turkey is in the interest of the U.S. government and in the interest of the people of both nations.

Add your name!

Dear Secretary Mike Pompeo,

We are encouraged to learn that on May 21, the Venezuelan and Turkish governments have agreed to sign a Protecting Power Agreement that would put the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC under the charge of the Turkish government. This is similar to the agreement that the State Department has worked out with Switzerland to take charge of the U.S. Embassy in Caracas. We have learned that the Maduro government is ready to approve the U.S.-Swiss Protecting Power Agreement if the U.S. government will approve the agreement between Venezuela and Turkey.

Such a reciprocal agreement will be beneficial for the people of both nations, as the Protecting Power Agreements will provide the U.S. and Venezuelan citizens with assistance when in need and will keep the embassies intact until relations are re-established at a future date.

    It’s time to make us all a local, global and beyond mindful participant, making policy that is real! I share w/all as we support Humanity’s options now, and CODEPink thank you for being one of them!

    Please read on and share in your walkabout for you and your earth, what all earthlings can do now, as peace is an option, once all organize and the tools of the times are here to do just that freely from Google and Nabble;
    I do appreciate what all can do to make this happen!

    As well as join in what needs to be prioritized, so more of these kinds of actions can take place in every community’s `local plan!

    I’m sending out a notice to quite a few Health-Activist professionals to take part in our campaign;

    We are a US nonprofit yet to fundraise and now we need your help, please!

    The link above shows the gest of what we are working at and due to many human errors, we would like to continue to perfect our plans sharing Humanity’s work. Any of you working w/organic-natural whole foods know well how important this scaling we speak of is. If not please read all the links to get a nice overview!

    If any can ASAP help us out w/Donations or loan, we would appreciate you emailing me, kara; as well you can use Zella and let me know.
    What would really help is $3600.00 by next week, that would cover some bank mistakes that got us behind! Then we have more supporters awaiting our proposal to support us more!
    Also, we are continuing Google’s AdGrant as they support this campaign to almost every country legally US allows. And they are giving us $10k in ads every month to do this campaign. As they support us using Google-educational tools as well I want to show an intro in G earth-space showing what Humanity is doing now in patches, and as we come together in message board all can then work w/one’s students using communities as classrooms, so all prioritize on earth-space being aware-or adding to correct us, and all restore ones local `plan to ecologically `enhance one’s sustaining healthy working communities bypassing all the controversy and scaling agro_ecological systems that is best to prepare anyone for any weather and more sequestering carbon, fueling life that sustains us all.

    We are perfecting a virtual earth-space platform and message board, sharing priorities that Humanity offers to rid toxic, saving life-healing-stoping Nuclear use, weapons of war-Military bases-restoring, etc. so no more are we repeating these same scars unknowingly!

    Supporting-scaling agro_ecological systems-natural building and fuel cells w/H on demand in localized systems, so as to stop the Congo disaster of children digging in the mines for others to make batteries for all electrics that many are thinking is the way to go!

    We want to build and connect w/nice archives showing we no longer can just live local, we have to hold self and others accountable locally and afar, and do our homework sharing a personal story to know facts, and share!

    Your help is appreciated!

    If I can answer any more questions please let me know!

    I have several people in the health field I respect and met thru HeathTalk, and I will correlate a nice offering if you want to send me your link, address it please Re: `transitional campaign, as well a few lines of your offerings/photos. I give you an Ex; As I talking to few Presidents globally as well Trump, I soon will tell more about the KETO diet due to breaking down the micronutrients, for never in all my years, did I realize how wrong I was in suggesting.

    When yet when we think what we do is important and fail to realize the stress we put on our organs, then to continue to overload w/toxic processed carbohydrates and more animal-fish-GMOs, wow, how stupid can one stay? And yes I know well-studying herbology w/western doctors, many do try!
    So also I’m seeking subject on brainwave HZ, for many not on the same page and the gut is where it starts if you are taking part in `The Institute Of Functional Medicine?? So if we are going to get real saving life on the earth, cleaning toxic on earth-space, we need to prioritize real clarity in peace negotiations w/intermediaries which is my love, so as to simultaneously work w/all plans create upon them much more and live local while becoming a mindful local, global and beyond participant!

    Holding self-accountable, to edit within restoring sharp sensors, as each local `plan is best to define who what and where interfering locally and afar! So as to gain these nutrients to feed one’s gut to edit one’s brain and maintain discipline over one’s self sensory observation vs belief causing misuse-abuse.
    Our messageboard being perfected has great ideas to decipher controversy so each without needs met and offerings shared will now see another posting for the local plans, so those needs can get met to fuel others to gain theirs! Work w/the `transitional plans that lead back to all plans.

    I recently quit Facebook for the reason of enjoying nice people but I’ve never really asked for help, and considering people did not respond w/our present errors, then that is telling me we not on the same page w/wanting similar objectives! Same w/Facebook itself, where Google and Nabble have been good to us and give us much free, same they offer to you, and sure they have a fee or other means for business!

    Point is If I get the same response here to subscribers, I’m sorry to say I will let you go to, for we are a small US nonprofit assoc. when yet so many w/so much more are fragmenting not getting to the issues at hand!

    We are also working w/Greta and students walking out of school, trying to redirect them to mindful action of what we are talking about! For I know what an attitude adjustment I went thru w/climate controversy, and this was my solutions sharing Humanity’s work to act and go beyond the stress I was in!
    Thank you and your corrections are welcome!

    Peace is real if we organize and reach out! Please let me know what you decide and if I can correct or add?

    Sincerely, kara j lincoln

    What will it tell other nations if the US State Department, our primary diplomatic agent, refuses to approve this diplomatic solution to the embassy standoffs in Venezuela and the US? Let us send the world a message confirming America’s democratic values and the rule of law.
