Support the Venezuelan People: Support President Maduro! No war for Oil!

 

 

 

2019-01-09On Friday 4th January 2019, the Lima Group of nations, at a conference in which Trump’s Secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, made an appearance by video-link, have issued a declaration that the Venezuelan government is illegitimate, denounced it for human rights violations, questioned its territorial legitimacy, and imposed sanctions on Venezuela.

 President Nicolas Maduro has characterised this move as an imperialist-sponsored attack on the constitutional and democratic order of Venezuela, and a move towards Coup d’état and direct military intervention, with the aim of gaining control of the natural resources of the Venezuelan people.

Venezuela chooses to Resist! US increases economic and political attacks in run up to Elections

Helena Menéndez, press secretary of the Venezuelan Embassy, delivers a message to Progressive British workers at CPGB-ML’s international BBQ, held at Saklatvala Hall in Southall, west London, on Saturday 25 July.

She outlines the history of the last 15 years of struggle in Venezuela, who’s basic meaning has been to use the vast wealth of Venezuela to improve the lives of the Venezuelan people.

This is precisely why the progressive Venezuelan government has fallen foul of US imperialism, who’s former president James Monroe openly declared his doctrine that European powers had no business in the Americas – for they were now the colonial possession of the USA. For almost 200 years this ‘principle’ has guided US policy, being re-asserted by the entire US establishment, including presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan.

Birmingham memorial meeting sends message to Venezuelan embassy

Chavez lives!

Tonight, in Birmingham, at the offices of the Birmingham branch of the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist – Leninist) our comrades organised a memorial meeting for our dear departed comrade Hugo Chavez. The meeting was supported by the Indian Workers Association (Great Britain), the Birmingham section of the Communist Corresponding Society and the community organisation from our area United We Stand, representing the people of Balsall Heath, Sparkbrook and Highgate. A number of local people, including a section of unemployed comrades working in the unemployed section of United We Stand gave messages expressing their love for Hugo Chavez and their solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution.

As we are unable to attend London in time to sign the book of condolence we passed the following resolution unanimously,

Red Salute to Hugo Chavez from the revolutionary Birmingham proletariat!

A great revolutionary light has been extinguished, but the cause for which President Hugo Chávez fought lives on as his abiding legacy, for it is the finest cause in all the world – and he served it truly.

It is with profound sorrow that we learned of Comrade Chávez’s deteriorating medical condition and death, but his great spirit – which helped to transform the economic and political relations of his fellow workers, the Venezuelan masses, and the Americas – lives on.

Hugo Chávez will live forever in the hearts of the working masses of Venezuela, the Caribbean, Latin America, and all who struggle for the liberation of humanity.

Those assembled tonight at this memorial meeting in Birmingham, UK, pledge to do all we can in the coming months to ensure that imperialist interference in Venezuela’s internal affairs is scuppered, and that comrade Hugo Chavez’s immense contribution to building a socialist Latin America, and his work towards the defeat of imperialism is never forgotten!”
