Venezuela Solidarity Day

by LASC Thursday, Oct. 20, 2005 at 8:26 AM

Bolivarian Revolution

NATIONAL VENEZUELA SOLIDARITY DAY: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2005

We Need Your Help to Make This A Successful Event for Real

Democracy!

To participate or get more information, send an email to:

jpj@lasolidarity.org

The Latin America Solidarity Coalition (LASC) is calling

for a National Venezuela Solidarity Day for Friday,

December 2, 2005, the anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine. It

is time for people in the United States to come together and

demand an end to centuries of interference in the hemisphere!

SPONSORS INCLUDE: ActionLA, Alliance for Global Justice,

Bolivarian Circles-Boston, Committee in Solidarity with the

People of El Salvador, Ecumenical Program in Central America

and the Caribbean, Global Exchange, Hands Off Venezuela Campaign,

Interconnect, Marin Interfaith Task Force, Mexico Solidarity

Network, Pan African Roots, Puerto Rican Nationalist Youth,

Quixote Center, School of the Americas Watch, Turnwind.

SPONSORS STILL BEING SOLICITED!

We are asking communities and individuals to participate

in a call-in/email campaign to Congress, and to organize

local events in solidarity with the Venezuelan people and

against US interference there, throughout Latin America, and

around the world.

Our message to Congress is:

*: Stop interfering in Venezuela's elections and sovereign

affairs!

*: Stop NED/USAID funding of the undemocratic opposition!

*: No more US sponsored coup attempts against elected

governments in Venezuela and Latin America!

A LITTLE BACKGROUND:

The U.S. Empire is increasingly losing its grip over Latin

America as social movements throughout the

hemisphere are rejecting neo-liberal policies and U.S.

military intervention. Venezuela is on the forefront of

change as the country moves towards a participatory democracy

by redistributing power, wealth and

resources and enhancing participation of civil society

on every level.

The majority of Venezuela’s voters have shown their

support for the Bolivarian movement by three times

affirming the Presidency of Hugo Chavez, electing a

Bolivarian majority in the National Assembly, and

approving a new constitution. In turn, the US/corporate power

structure and the Bush administration have supported repeated

attempts to bring down democracy

in Venezuela, including a failed military coup against

Chavez led by graduates of the notorious School of the Americas

(SOA). Much of the interference in Venezuela's democratic

processes has been through the National Endowment for Democracy

and USAID. These organizations funded groups behind both the

failed

coup and the illegal work stoppages and lockouts

designed to cripple the economy, and also funded the

unsuccesful effort to recall Chavez. So far the powers

of shamocracy have been unable to overcome the real democracy

and steadfastness of the Venezuelan people.

Through institutions like the SOA, the NED, and USAID,

the US is undermining democratic movements all over

Latin America and the Caribbean.. NED/USAID leaders work with

anti-Cuban terrorists, and the International Republican

Institute, an NED core group, facilitated the

coup against Haiti's elected government. The SOA has trained

some of the world’s worst human rights abusers.

In the United States, such meddling by a foreign government

would be considered an act of aggression,

and US citizens accepting such support would be

arrested for treason.

The same business and political leaders who are

attacking democratic choices in Venezuela and around

the world are also attacking our rights as voters and

citizens right here in the United States. The struggle

for democracy is an international struggle.

NO MORE SHAMOCRACY! GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT

THEY WANT!
