Bolivarian Revolution under threat... again

Hugo Chavez rose to power 20 years ago and the Bolivarian Revolution (named after Simon Bolivar) has been under attack ever since, most notably from a failed coup d'etat in 2002. The CIA and US backed "opposition" have been consistent in their use of violence to intimidate and inflame conflict. The opposition is acting against the will and the interests of the people, yet western media continue to distort the reality.

Political Destabilization in Venezuela and the Western Media’s Double Standard by Salim Lamrani
While the opposition is responsible for the deadly violence which has plagued the country since February 2014, Western media continue to accuse the democratically elected government of Nicolás Maduro.

Regime change in Venezuela has remained a US policy objective throughout changes in the US presidency over the last 20 years although post 9/11, the Bush administration was more focused on regime change in Afghanistan and the Middle East. The Trump administration reaffirmed its commitment to remove Chavez's successor, Nicolas Maduro, soon after Donald Trump took up office in the White House.

Rex Tillerson Already Talking Regime Change in Venezuela by Telesur (from January 2017)
The new U.S. administration of Donald Trump has made it public that it will seek a regime change policy in Venezuela disguised in “transition to democracy” rhetoric, the country’s potential new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in an interview this week.

Violence and economic sabotage are being used to put a Structural Elite directed government back in power, as they've done in Argentina. US focus is back on Latin America and should Maduro's government fall, a major impediment to US hegemony will be gone. This is of concern to all of us who value freedom and the future of humanity.

What can we do? Expose and reject the lies. Seek alternative "voices" to learn and share information about what's going on in Venezuela.

Venezuela's fate is inextricably tied up in ours - one world government and subjugation of humanity is the objective. We can sit on our hands and wait for what currently seems inevitable or. we can withdraw consent - to be lied to, abused, oppressed and enslaved. Then their plans and their merciless political economy will fail and a new one arise.
