Workers World Party statement: U.S. hands off Venezuela!
Emergency Actions List

Workers World


Workers World Party calls on the movement here in the U.S. to unite in the streets to defend the elected Nicolás Maduro government of Venezuela against Washington’s blatant coup attempt, aimed at rolling back the gains made by the Bolivarian Revolution. This aggression is an attack on working and oppressed peoples everywhere.

Venezuela’s sovereignty is at stake as the Trump administration has formally anointed a small right-wing grouping with unknown “leaders” in Venezuela, calling it the “legitimate” government. This refusal to recognize the will of the Venezuelan people, who have consistently elected leaders committed to the path of independence from Washington, is imperialist arrogance taken to its height.

It is also a clear threat that U.S. imperialism intends to intervene openly to overthrow the Venezuelan government and install its own puppets, as it tried to do in 1961 with the unsuccessful Bay of Pigs invasion against revolutionary Cuba.

In the 21st century alone U.S. imperialism has lied to the population here, inventing pretexts to bomb, invade and overthrow governments in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, committing war crimes and murdering millions of people. It has killed other hundreds of thousands in Syria through subversion, sabotage and bombing. These costly U.S. wars devoured hundreds of billions of dollars and created tens of millions of refugees abroad, even as public services here are starved for funds.  

There is no doubt that were this latest imperialist intervention in Venezuela to succeed, it would increase the tide — and the suffering — of economic and political refugees who already are fleeing repressive governments installed in Central America with Washington’s blessing.

Let’s be in the streets to say: No more coups! No more regime change! Hands off Venezuela!

Emergency Actions Called: U.S. Hands off Venezuela! No U.S.-backed Coup!

The Venezuelan people took to the streets of Caracas on Jan. 23 in a huge popular mobilization in support of President Nicolás Maduro and the Bolivarian Revolution.

Workers all over the world have a stake in Venezuela’s future. While the U.S. government strangles millions of workers here by shutting down social services over Trump’s racist wall, the Pentagon remains open for business and is taking aggressive action against workers abroad.

A previously unknown puppet acting in U.S. interests named Juan Guaidó arrogantly swore himself in as President of Venezuela on Jan. 23  against the wishes of the people of Venezuela. He called the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, a usurper. This is a lie. Maduro was democratically elected by the people of Venezuela — twice!

Guaidó’s backers in Trump’s White House, fascist leader of Brazil Bolsonaro, and all other regional puppets of the U.S. government have already eagerly accepted Guaidó as one of their own, even as he cowers in the Colombian embassy in Caracas. They want to wipe out the gains made by Maduro and his predecessor Hugo Chávez from the pages of history. Iraq war architect John Bolton says that regime change in oil-rich Venezuela is a “big business opportunity.”

We must be shoulder-to-shoulder with our class in Venezuela and fight back! The struggle for Bolivarian Venezuela’s future is a struggle all class-conscious workers worldwide must take part in. If workers want free health care, strong labor rights, an end to racism, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and a decent society to raise children in, we must mobilize to defend Venezuela’s gains.

Silence is not an option!

The International Action Center and Workers World Party, along with many other progressive organizations, have called for national mobilizations in support and defense of the Bolivarian revolution. Join us in the streets at these important actions!
