      Hands Off Venezuela!
      No to Sanctions!
      No to Threats!

      By Janine Solanki

      On November 1, 2018 U.S. President Trump signed an executive order targeting gold exports from Venezuela – a resource which Venezuela is using to lessen the harmful impacts of the economic war that the U.S., Canada and EU have imposed with brutal sanctions against Venezuela.

      The undemocratic imperialist campaign to force “regime change” in Venezuela has been full of dangerous and war-mongering rhetoric against Venezuela’s democratically elected government of President Nicolas Maduro. In Vancouver, Canada, the Fire This Time Venezuela Solidarity Campaign has been organizing in solidarity with Venezuela for many years, to protest the U.S. and Canada’s threats and vicious actions against Venezuela. Fire This Time activists campaign to defend the important gains that the Bolivarian Revolution has brought to the Venezuela people.

      On November 2, the Fire This Time Venezuela Solidarity Campaign held a monthly action in front of the U.S. Consulate in downtown Vancouver. Participants heard from speakers, chanted demands and picketed with signs and a giant banner for all to see, reading U.S./Canada Hands Off Venezuela! After the picket action, the protest moved to the busy public square in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery for a petition drive and info display. Activists approached people walking by, discussing the truth about the gains in Venezuela and asking passers-by to sign on to a petition against Canada’s sanctions against Venezuela!

      Join the action next month to stand with the people of Venezuela, to defend their sovereignty and self-determination! Check for events and info at www.firethistime.net or follow on Facebook and Twitter @FTT_np
