APRIL 11 A NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION TO SUPPORT THE BOLIVARIAN REVOLUTION

Today more than 100 people marched to the diplomatic mission of the United Nations to deliver a document and denounce intervention in Venezuela during the coming elections.
No U.S. Intervention in Venezuela Elections 

TELL WASHINGTON & THE VENEZUELAN ELITE: NO TO DESTABILIZATION EFFORTS IN VENEZUELA,

A day of Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution: Thursday APRIL 11, 2013

Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Washington DC, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Denver, Toronto, Vancouver, Olympia.

After the tragic death of our beloved president Chavez, the imperialist nations of the world are preparing to attack the Bolivarian Revolution. Venezuela is getting prepared for a new presidential election and the imperialists are intent to intervene and sabotage the election.

President Nicolas Maduro has claimed that elements of the U.S. State Department are hiring mercenaries to attack Venezuela in the days of the presidential election. The United States wants to create chaos in Venezuela to justify a military intervention. Let them know that we are here to denounce them.

NO US INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA ELECTION 
The solidarity movement in the United States right now faces a critical challenge with regards to Venezuela as well as the revolutionary process in Latin America. The tragic death of our comrade President Hugo Chavez has many believing that the important process for progress in Venezuela, Latin America and the world, has been dealt a crippling blow but we know that the Venezuelan people and the region will never go backward. And our solidarity will continue as they move forward in their struggles for self-determination, sovereignty, integration and social justice.

The people of Venezuela will honor the last will of President Chavez by overwhelmingly voting this coming April 14 for Nicolas Maduro for President. The Venezuelan people clearly remain committed to the process of fundamental change in their country, no matter what. We are confident that the roots of the Bolivarian Revolution will remain strong and grow.

But the death of our dear President Hugo Chavez will be used by US imperialism and the elite oligarchy in Venezuela to carry out aggressive plans to destabilize the revolutionary process in Venezuela. We must send a strong message to Washington right away: we are organizing our voices of solidarity with the Venezuelan people and demand no intervention during this coming election in Venezuela.

Why April 11? The Venezuelan coup attempt of 2002 was a failed coup d’état on 11 April 2002, that saw late President Hugo Chavez ousted from office for 47 hours, being restored by a combination of military loyalists and massive public support for his government. Chavez was initially detained by members of the military and of pro-business elites represented by Venezuelan Federation of Chambers of Commerce (Fedecámaras) president Pedro Carmona, who was declared as the interim president. Carmona’s brief rule saw the Venezuelan National Assembly and the Supreme Court both dissolved, and the country’s 1999 Constitution declared void.

In New York City, we will gather at Times Square @ 4PM to express our love and solidarity with the legacy of the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and then we will march to the U.S. Mission to tell President Barack Obama: We do not want U.S. intervention in Venezuela.

If you are in a city where no action is taking place, call, fax, email the White House and voice your opposition to intervention. Or better yet, organize a local action!
