Joint Statement on Venezuela
Communist and Workers’ Parties
March 7, 2019
We, Communist and Workers Parties of the world, decisively denounce the imperialist plans, the subversive tactics and the threats unleashed by the US, the EU and their allied governments in Latin America, aiming at overthrowing the legally elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, at subjugating the people of the country to their imperialist interests, and at looting the country’s wealth-producing resources.
After the failed provocation prepared by the US using the imperialists’ puppet Guaidó on February 23rd at the Colombian border, under the pretext of “humanitarian aid”, new scenarios are promoted for a coup or even an imperialist military attack, while simultaneously they continue the effort to organize more provocations that will give a pretext for the escalation of the intervention.
We strongly condemn every coup and imperialist military attack scheme of the US and its allies!
We decisively state that they will find against them not only the people of Venezuela, but also the Communist and Workers Parties, the working class’ and people’s movement all around the world!
We vehemently condemn the statements of John Bolton, National Security Advisor of the USA, according to which the government of the USA follows the Monroe Doctrine that considers the whole of Latin America as its exclusive zone of interest.
Latin America belongs to its own people.
Loyal to the principles of proletarian internationalism we express our solidarity with the people of Venezuela; only the people of Venezuela have the capacity to decide the internal affairs of its country. We express our solidarity with the Communist Party of Venezuela, the Communist Youth of Venezuela and other Venezuelan anti-imperialist forces that struggle under difficult conditions to defend the people’s interests.
Down with Imperialism!
The People Will Prevail!
