Solidarity statement – Canadians condemn attempt

of coup d’état led by the venezuelan opposition


The undersigned, condemn the violence perpetuated by a small sector of the fascist right-wing in different cities across Venezuela in the last days, in an attempt to destabilize the county in a similar fashion as it was done with President Hugo Chávez, on April 2002.

We express our solidarity with the families of the victims and the wounded as well as with our Venezuelan brothers and sisters who struggle for peace, sovereignty and social justice.

We strongly denounce the plan to undermine and overthrow the Bolivarian Revolution, the legacy of President Hugo Chavez, and the legitimate and constitutional government under President Nicolás Maduro.

We support the Venezuelan government’s right to stop violent protestors and to defend the revolution as elected by the people. The Bolivarian process has won more elections than any other government in the world, having won 17 out of the last 18 elections.

This is just part of the indisputable democratic and participatory nature of the Bolivarian Revolution that it is supported by the majority of the Venezuelan people.

We condemn the well-documented bias in the corporate media that looks to generate support for the most violent and undemocratic elements of Venezuela’s opposition by distorting the reality in in the country. This is part of a larger campaign, funded by imperialist governments, mainly by the U.S. and other agents of capital in and outside of Venezuela, who reject the self-determination of Venezuela’s people to construct socialism in their country. These sectors are the enemies of Venezuela’s people and they seek to exploit and profit from the natural resources of Latin America at any cost, including bloodshed.

From Canada we declare our unconditional support for the self-determination of the Venezuelan people and the Bolivarian revolution.

Venezuela´s people deserve peace!
