The World Peace Council (WPC) expresses its categorical and vehement condemnation of the attempt to overthrow the legitimately elected government and President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro. The coordinated efforts by the reactionary local oligarchy together with the US administration, the European Union (EU), the Organisation of American States (OAS) and several Latin American governments consitute a clear effort of open intervention in the domestic affairs of the country. The self-proclaimed “Interim President”-puppet Juan Guaido and the developments around it, represent a dangerous escalation in the imperialist plans of the USA, EU and NATO in the region.
We express our solidarity with the people of Venezuela, its anti-imperialist peace loving forces, particularly to our Member Organisation COSI (Comite de Solidaridad Internacional), in their struggle to defend their fatherland, to deepen the achievements for the benefit of the vast majority of the people, against imperialist inervention and exploitation.
