On 11 April 2002 a coup against Hugo Chavez , Venezuelan President was defeated by the mobilization of the urban poor and loyal soldiers who acted against the coup leaders. Just 2 years after the death of Hugo Chavez a further coup attempt has been thwarted. The Opposition have been unable to defeat the Bolivarian revolution in elections and have sought “regime change” through violence, hoarding of food and necessities, fomenting economic instability as well as mass media and social media campaigns of lies and disinformation. United States involvement in these activities has been exposed time and again.Obama has now promulgated an executive order labeling Venezuela a national security threat (to the US)
The only threat that Venezuela posed to the US is the threat of a good example!
An international solidarity campaign has been launched. With the phrase “Obama, Venezuela is not a threat!” the campaign aims to gather millions of signatures, both within Venezuela and worldwide, to pressure the U.S. president into repealing the executive order.
Brisbane activists in the Australia Venezuelan Solidarity Network will launch this campaign on the 13th anniversary of the defeat of the 2002 coup.
Saturday April 11 at 3:30pm
