URGENT CALL!: Venezuela Issue: How to Reach U.S Congress:

How to Reach Congress:
Urgent call. Call your congressional representatives, NOW! tell them that you don’t want any military intervention in Venezuela for peace on the continent we require action.
Colombia has convened for this December 3, [Tues.] a summit for the activation of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) against Venezuela.
In the context of the conflicting Latin American reality, this call constitutes a new danger for peace, democracy and the right of self-determination of the peoples in the region.
It is urgent for US citizens and people around the world to pronounce itself against this conclave that intends to undertake a military aggression against Venezuela, which would benefit the regional control plans of US imperialism and allow the ruling oligarchies in the countries of the so-called Lima group [https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lima_Group] to evade their responsibilities against economic, political and social crises that are going through, due to the disasters caused by the neoliberal model.
In solidarity,

Media Continue to Push Misinformation About Venezuela and Drug Trafficking

Media Continue to Push Misinformation About Venezuela and Drug Trafficking

In recent years, Western corporate journalists have turned to systematically citing unnamed sources and secret documents from the US national security state. Indeed, one would be forgiven for thinking it was standard operating procedure.

The Wall Street Journal (9/15/19) takes this “deep state” fan fiction genre to new heights with its latest on Venezuela, titled “Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez Worked to Flood US with Cocaine, US Prosecutors Say.”

Selected Stories about Venezuela’s Economy

by Pasqualina Curcio Curcio

RESUMEN | September 30, 2019

Venezuela does not produce anything. Only petroleum. Venezuelans are swimming in black gold. We live off of oil revenues. We do not even produce the food we eat. We import it.

In between half-truths and half-lies, these are the most widely spread stories about us. Then follows the old story that becomes a trend every once in a while, that started decades ago: “substituting imports,” also known as “towards overcoming the oil rentier model.”

Story 1: Venezuela as mono-producing country.Read More »

The Real Venezuela: Dignified, Indivisible and Truthful

The Real Venezuela: Dignified, Indivisible and Truthful
As Rodriguez said, Venezuela is “dignified and indivisible.” We believe that what distinguishes the real Venezuela from its imaginary illusion created by the US are precisely those qualities in addition to being truthful.

All those wondering who is in charge in Venezuela, should stop reading the biased and confusing corporate media and should look at who represents the country at the United Nations. The UN is not a perfect institution but it is one that is clear on the issue of membership despite powerful attempts at obfuscating that clarity.

Much media effort has been put in creating the illusion that the legitimate Venezuela is the one “ruled” by a self-appointed (read, unelected) interim (read, for an undefined term) president that presides with no army, no cabinet, no judicial and no recognized congress. His name is hardly recognized in Venezuela were it not for the unrelenting promotion by his major supporter, the United States government.Read More »
