      Venezuela Solidarity Activists:
      US/Canada Hands Off Venezuela

      By Janine Solanki

      Venezuela today faces a U.S.-led, Canada supported the campaign to overthrow the democratically-elected government of Venezuela. Under crippling U.S./Canada/EU sanctions, the people of Venezuela are continuously punished for their decision to build an independent country and continue to expand the Bolivarian revolutionary process. Just last month, U.S. President Trump announced further sanctions against Venezuela. The government of Canada also announced that they would be working with their right-wing counter-revolutionary allies to take the government of Venezuela to the International Criminal Court.

      In Vancouver, Canada, the Fire This Time Venezuela Solidarity Campaign is protesting monthly against imperialist intervention, in defense of Venezuela and the Bolivarian Revolution! On October 12, activists gathered in front of the U.S. Consulate to raise picket signs demanding “U.S. Hands Off Venezuela!” and heard from local speakers between rounds of picketing. The picket was followed by an information table and display in the busy downtown plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery, where passersby stopped to get more information and to sign on to a petition against Canada’s sanctions on Venezuela and interference in the country.

      Join in demanding an end to Canada and U.S. imperialist interference against Venezuela!
