In Solidarity with Venezuela

THE Venezuela Solidarity Committee denounces the ongoing attempts to destabilise the Bolivarian government of Venezuela. Right-wing opposition groups, supported by the rich oligarchs are openly inciting violence against the democratically elected government. The hand of the US is clearly visible in these events, as evidence emerged that some of the diplomatic officials stationed in the US embassy were in regular contact with the perpetrators of the opposition sponsored violence. The Venezuelan government had to expel those officials who were interfering in the internal affairs of a sovereign country. The Committee condemns the US interference in Venezuela and expresses its solidarity with the people of Venezuela who are in the streets defending their government and the country.
