The People of the World Say: No War on Venezuela! No War for Oil! Actions set in 70+ cities on #23Feb

Please share widely across lists, networks, and on social media*

Global solidarity actions with Venezuela on Saturday, February 23 are increasingly urgent as the U.S. ramps up its military presence in the Caribbean and Colombia. We need you to join us on February 23 at one of the 70+ actions planned across the globe against U.S. military intervention in Venezuela.

The U.S. has deployed military planes carrying “aid” to Cucuta, Colombia on the Venezuelan border. The Cuban government warned that the U.S. military is taking positions in strategic locations throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. The aid is likely a ploy to cover for smuggling arms into Venezuela and a tool to provoke confrontation to justify greater U.S. intervention – a strategy that mirrors previous U.S. military interventions in Latin America and across the world.

Opposition leader and U.S. puppet Juan Guaidó has called for a so-called “humanitarian corridor” to open across the border on February 23, one month after his failed coup attempt.

His announcement and the U.S. military build-up are warnings of imminent military action against Venezuela.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced a declaration of a ‘national emergency’ to move billions in funds and even more U.S. troops to the U.S./Mexico border to build the racist border wall. U.S. Marines have also been deployed to Haiti to repress a growing uprising by the Haitian people. We say: No U.S. troops on the border with Mexico, in Haiti, or Venezuela!

“Venezuela Live Aid” Feb 22 – a cover for war: English billionaire Richard Branson is organizing for a cynical propaganda spectacle on the Colombia-Venezuela border this Friday in the form of a concert. Demonstrations around the world February 23 must counter this war propaganda blitz against Venezuela.

No war for oil!

U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton has admitted what U.S. intervention is really about: “It will make a big difference to the United States economically if we could have American oil companies invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela.” Just like Iraq, this is U.S. intervention for oil. Venezuela’s oil belongs to the Venezuelan people, not U.S. oil companies!

    I’m waiting for a million to surround the White House, all armed, madder than hell and not going to take it anymore – like most of us who inform ourselves (not most of Americans, sorry to say). Perhaps then Trump will pay attention, or not.

    You are going to be waiting a long time for a mass armed opposition to Trump or any president.

    The anger and outrage is there, the mode of deploying is sadly absent..so far.
