Social Movements Call for Denunciation of U.S. War Action Against Venezuela

The Venezuelan people appeal for support from all the social organizations across the five continents, to denounce the U.S. government for launching cybernetic weapons and electromagnetic pulse weapons against our nation, causing a blackout throughout the country on March 7.

This ruthless act of war has caused serious problems in hospitals, maternity wards, communication networks, drinking water distribution networks and sanitation systems, financial and commercial systems, transportation networks, not to mention the impact on millions of Venezuelan families on their daily lives.

Since the first recorded attack until now, the national government continues to work together with the electricity industry and the Bolivarian National Armed Force to restore electricity and all affected networks, and provide extraordinary support to affected health centres.

At the same time, the Venezuelan people have demonstrated an enormous commitment to peace by developing solidarity and community based ways of maintaining calm and helping each other in the midst of such a delicate situation.

We demand that this action against a civilian population should be treated as a State crime against humanity perpetrated by the government of Donald Trump, considering the connection that has been made public and communicated by political actors linked to his administration and political base. In this regard, we ask that this serious denunciation be replicated before governments and international organizations from all the unions, parties, networks and social movements of the countryside and the city.

We know that this attack originates from the need for the U.S. to take control of our oil and for this they are determined to make our people suffer, as Marco Rubio, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Elliot Abrams, Mike Pence and Donald Trump have all declared. Against this we reaffirm our people’s determination to be free and to preserve the democracy and sovereignty that we have achieved in these years, the destiny of Venezuela is determined by Venezuelans in peace, we will continue to raise the banner of our historic project: communal socialism from the power of the people.

We condemn the terrorist attack of the US against Venezuela!
Hands off Venezuela!
Stop the Yankee Interference!
