CPA Statement

Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela

The Communist Party of Australia supports whole-heartedly the international call for actions in solidarity with the government and people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela between August 29 and September 4, 2016.

This appeal from progressive organisations in Venezuela, including the Communist Party of Venezuela, was made necessary because of increased aggression on the part of right-wing forces in the country at the direction of their masters in the US. In March this year, US President Obama extended and broadened his notorious executive order declaring the government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro a “threat” to US national security and its foreign policy.

The “threat” is, in reality, the threat of a good example of pro-people policy and the seeking of mutually beneficial relations with all countries in the region and beyond. Using extremely violent local fascist groups, the US has sought to disrupt popular programs and undermine support for the Bolivarian Revolution.

The CPA expresses it continued support for the Bolivarian Revolution, the efforts of President Maduro and any local initiatives to express solidarity.
