STAND WITH THE BOLIVARIAN REVOLUTION! US HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!

Saturday, Feb 23, 1-3:30pm
The Arts Exchange, 2148 Newnan St., East Point 30344
(near Ft. McPherson MARTA Station)

One month ago, at the urging of Vice President Mike Pence, Juan Guaido announced he was the president of Venezuela, a public declaration of a US-backed coup against Nicolas Maduro, the winner of the 2018 election.

This blatant interference is the latest attempt by US imperialism to derail and overturn the social changes initiated by the Bolivarian Revolution.

Revolutionary programs bringing access to health care, education, and housing and delivering rights to workers, women, the Indigenous, lgbtq people and Afro descendants fueled the hatred of the oligarchy and wealthy interests, domestic and foreign.

The US has employed every tactic – threats and intimidation, media lies, sanctions, sabotage, funding “opposition” groups and more -to quell the Venezuelan movement for socialism and national independence..

Saturday’s program will feature videos, speakers and discussion on how to support Venezuela and stop US intervention.

Initiated by Workers World Party in collaboration with International Action Center, Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND), Regional Council of Africans in the Americas, Friends of the Congo, and Party for Socialism and Liberation

Stand with Venezuela’s People & President! US Hands Off!

STAND WITH VENEZUELA’S PEOPLE AND PRESIDENT!
US HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!
CNN: MOUTHPIECE FOR US IMPERIALISM!
5-6pm, CNN (downtown Atlanta)

The danger to Venezuela’s people and elected president, Nicolas Maduro from blatantly illegal and aggressive measures to orchestrate a coup is escalating.

Following the Trump administration’s open interference with the country’s political leadership by declaring Juan Guaido its anointed president and dismissing the overwhelming election of Maduro, the two decades of open hostility to the advancements of the Bolivarian Revolution are clear.

The United States has a long history of economic and political domination of Central and South America, supporting right-wing and repressive regimes that have brought poverty, repression and civil unrest to millions of people.

Venezuela is attempting to direct its own path, using its oil resources and the desire of the majority to establish healthcare, housing, education,jobs and culture for all its citizens as its goal.

We demand the US stop interfering in the right of Venezuelans to determine for themselves the direction of their society.

We demand CNN and other major media stop acting as the propaganda arm of the US government with its false and biased coverage of the turmoil in Venezuela.

This solidarity action is initiated by the Atlanta branch of Workers World Party and endorsed by ARAAC, Friends of the Congo, Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition and Party for Socialism and Liberation.

(We ask those coming to this solidarity demonstration to meet at the corner of Broad and Marietta at 4:30 to walk together to CNN. Many downtown streets will be closed to car traffic and using MARTA is recommended.)

Please bring signs, banners and drums.
