NO coup — NO war — NO sanctions

Join us on March 9 for a march and rally against the Trump administration’s effort to engineer a coup in Venezuela and a new devastating war there. The aggressive policy against Venezuela repeats the ugly pattern of wars for regime change in the oil-rich countries of Iraq and Libya.

National Security Advisor John Bolton is reading from the same script, declaring a “troika of tyranny” in Latin America (like George W. Bush’s “axis of evil”) as a precursor for regime change first in Venezuela, and then Cuba and Nicaragua. Trump officials are openly talking about seizing Venezuela’s vast oil reserves — the largest in the world.

It is time to stand up and with a clear voice say NO to the newest example of the “Monroe Doctrine,” which the U.S. government has used for over two centuries to repeatedly invade Latin America and Caribbean, control its politics and extract its resources.

The White House aims to overthrow the government of President Nicolás Maduro and replace him with Juan Guaidó. Guaidó is a U.S.-trained operative who was unknown to the vast majority of Venezuelans before he proclaimed him-self president — at Vice President Mike Pence’s urging. Although Guaidó has the backing of Trump, the CIA, and the Republican and Democratic Party leaderships alike, huge numbers of Venezuelans have marched to reject this coup and defend their independence.

The San Francisco action will be held in conjunction with the National March on Washington on March 16.

Protesta en SF
¡Fuera de Venezuela!
¡NO al golpe de estado! ¡NO a la guerra! ¡NO a las sanciones!

Sábado, 9 de marzo, 12pm
Plaza de ONU, 7 y Mercado, SF

Acompáñenos el 9 de marzo para una marcha y una manifestación contra el esfuerzo de la administración Trump de imponer un golpe de estado en Venezuela y llevar a cabo una nueva guerra devastadora en ese país. La política agresiva contra Venezuela es la continuación del horripilante patrón de guerras por el cambio de régimen en los países ricos en petróleo de Irak y Libia.

El asesor de seguridad nacional John Bolton está leyendo del mismo guión, declarando una “troika de tiranía” en América Latina (semejante al “eje del mal” de George W. Bush) como precursor del cambio de régimen primero en Venezuela, y luego en Cuba y Nicaragua. Los funcionarios de Trump hablan abiertamente de aprovechar las vastas reservas petroleras de Venezuela, las más grandes del mundo.

Es hora de levantarse y en voz alta clara decirle NO al ejemplo más reciente de la “Doctrina Monroe,” que el gobierno de los Estados Unidos ha utilizado durante más de dos siglos para invadir repetidamente a América Latina y el Caribe, para controlar su política y extraer sus recursos.

La Casa Blanca pretende derrocar al gobierno del presidente Nicolás Maduro y reemplazarlo con un nuevo gobierno encabezado por Juan Guaidó. Guaidó es un agente entrenado en Estados Unidos que era un desconocido para la gran mayoría de los venezolanos antes de que se autoproclamara presidente, a instancias del vicepresidente Mike Pence. Aunque Guaidó cuenta con el respaldo de Trump, la CIA y los líderes republicanos y del Partido Demócrata por igual, un gran número de venezolanos han marchado para rechazar este golpe y defender su independencia.

La acción de San Francisco se llevará a cabo conjuntamente con la Marcha Nacional en Washington el 16 de marzo.
