Venezuela National Day of Action Activities by City

Venezuela National Day of Action Activities by City

hugo_chavez_and_cheMarch 5 is the second anniversary of the passing of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chávez, who transformed Venezuela through his courageous struggle to help Venezuelans become protagonists of their destiny.  The Venezuela Strategy Group, a coalition of solidarity organizations and individuals has called for actions on March 5 to commemorate Chavez’ legacy and to build opposition to US efforts to replace the democratically elected government of President Nicolas Maduro through violence.

The US government is working to destabilize Venezuela’s democratically elected government, using US tax-payer dollars to finance anti-government organizations in Venezuela, encouraging coup attempts and even terrorist attacks on their population. Now, the US is applying sanctions against Venezuela to punish the government and people for defending their sovereignty. It is up to us, the people of the United States, to demand that the US government stop the attacks and destabilization of Venezuela, respect international law and Venezuela’s right to self-determination.

If you live in any of the cities which have announced activities on or around March 5, please turn out to remember the advances Venezuelans won through the Bolivarian Revolution led by President Chavez, and to demand of the US government – Hands Off Venezuela!
