President Trump has reportedly argued for military intervention in Venezuela since early 2017, while he and various other administration officials have repeatedly stated that “all options are on the table” for Venezuela.
Venezuela poses no threat to the U.S. Our forceful threats are absolutely unacceptable and only increase the immense political polarization in Venezuela.
We must call on members of Congress to firmly denounce these threats and make the adoption of the Prohibiting Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela Act a top priority.
Though many observers have noted that civil war is an increasingly likely prospect, Trump’s administration is vigorously opposing peaceful dialogue between the country’s political actors and have made open threats of military intervention.
There is no moral, legal, or political justification for military force. Venezuela’s crisis must be solved through dialogue and negotiations.
Sign the petition: We call on Congress to take a strong, public stand against these immoral, reckless and illegal policies and to support efforts to advance peaceful dialogue, before it is too late.
We demand you reject any threats of military force and support the Prohibiting Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela Act. Venezuela poses no threat to the U.S. We will not accept any military force that further harms this country’s stability.
