Two centuries of U.S. intervention, including recent examples such as Libya and Syria, have demonstrated the death and destruction that follows for the people of every country the empire deems a threat. Whether the governments targeted by the United States are socialist or not, the goals and consequences remain the same: protecting capital, hegemony, and empire, no matter the human cost.
Regardless of how one may personally feel about Nicolas Maduro, the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, or the Venezuelan government as a whole, only a fool could possibly believe that the policy goals of the United States in Latin America are “humanitarian.” The Socialist Party of Ventura County (SPVC) categorically rejects any and all attempts by the United States, its allies, or its proxy states to intervene in the political affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
On Saturday, March 16, the ANSWER Coalition and CODEPINK will be staging a rally in Pershing Square, Los Angeles at 2:00 PM to call for an end to U.S. aggression, sanctions, and coups against Venezuela. The SPVC fully endorses this demonstration of international solidarity, and calls for everyone who opposes the brutal history of U.S. regime change to show up and demand HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!

Approved by the Local Executive Committee of the Socialist Party of Ventura County on March 5th, 2019.
