On July 12, former US National Security advisor John Bolton, admitted on national television that he had helped orchestrate coups in foreign countries. Bolton was speaking to CNN host Jake Tapper amid the hearings in Congress on the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, by supporters of former president Donald Trump.

During the exchange, Bolton stated his disagreement with accusations that the riot was a “coup d’etat aimed at the US constitution”, arguing that it was a “once in a lifetime occurrence”. Tapper then stated “One doesn’t have to be brilliant to attempt a coup”.

Bolton’s response, in a widely circulated clip, was “I disagree with that. As someone who has helped plan coup d’etats, not here, but you know other places, it takes a lot of work. And that’s not what he [Trump] did.” Citing his expertise “having planned coups”, in Tapper’s words, Bolton declined to go into specifics, only to say “Well I wrote about Venezuela in the book [“The Room Where It Happened”], and it [the coup] turned out not to be successful– not that we had all that much to do with it– but I saw what it took for an opposition to try and overturn an illegally elected president and they failed…”

For the first time in four years, every major opposition party in Venezuela participated in elections. For the fifth time in four years, the left won in a landslide. Voters elected 23 governors, 335 mayors, 253 state legislators, and 2,471 municipal councilors.

Network in Defense of Humanity Letter to President Nicolás Maduro, Honoring your Dignity and the Heroism of all the Venezuelan People

RESUMEN | February 27, 2021

“In Europe everything is done for tyranny, here it is for liberty; which certainly makes us enormously superior; they support thrones, kings; we support peoples, republics; they want dependence, we want independence”.

-Simón Bolívar in Lima, February 23,1825

President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela; Nicolás Maduro Moros

Dear Mr. President:

It is possible that we have not been able to express sufficiently our solidarity and appreciation for the anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist struggle that the government that you lead is permanently promoting through your responsibility as president and legitimate depositary of the confidence of your people. It is necessary today to express our recognition of your courage in the maelstrom of adverse scenarios produced at great speed and with great diversity. Under the convictions, matured by the example of our peoples and our heroes, there is no room for flattery or for the “cult of personality”. On the contrary, our REDH was born to make criticism an emancipatory tool at the service of the people, especially fraternal criticism that perfects social struggles. Embracing this original slogan, it is appropriate today to recognize the courage and determination to take a measure that corresponds to the responsibility of your popular mandate, to defend the most cherished principles on which our struggles have developed, such as the self-determination of the peoples and the rejection of all foreign interference in internal affairs, which make for sovereignty and independence. In this sense, we applaud with standing ovation the expulsion of the Ambassador of the European Union in Venezuela, in accordance with the powers that you have as President of the Republic and provoked by the unacceptable interference of the diplomat in the internal affairs of your country.Read More »
