against US intervention in Venezuela
This is a difficult time for Venezuela, with Trump intensifying ‘regime change’ efforts – we have seen threats of war, an assassination attempt on the President, an attempted coup and incursions by paramilitary forces. We need your help today to build international resistance to this illegal ‘regime change’ agenda.
At the same time US sanctions have been stepped up to the point where they are effectively a blockade – not unlike that experienced by Cuba. Imports of food and essential medical supplies are regularly blocked. We need to raise awareness of this blockade and its human impacts – please chip in £20 today.
The UK has been complicit throughout, including through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s “Reconstruction Unit”, set up to plan for UK private companies to move in in the event of a change of regime. The refusal of the Bank of England to release Venezuela’s gold deposits to fund imports of food and medicines via the UN Development Programme is further evidence of UK hostility. We have been active against these threats, organising over 10,000 people to say ‘Give Venezuela Back Its Gold’ and having online events viewed by 1000s of people to tell the truth about Venezuela. Please give us what you can here so we can expose the Tory’s reactionary agenda.
We now need your support to further step up campaigning by raising £5,000 for our emergency ‘Stop Trump’ campaign plan. We are planning a series of online events, want to reach 20,000 signatures on our anti-sanctions petition and need to keep rebutting media lies.
Please give £20 or what you can afford here, to enable more activity to be organised against Trump’s war agenda. Your donations of any size make a real difference, so please chip in today online or send a cheque payable to Venezuela Solidarity Campaign at VSC, c/o 33-37 Moreland Street, London EC1V 8VB
Many thanks for your support,
