Statement of concern and call for solidarity: Venezuela

Nicholas Maduro

A call for solidarity from civil society, academia, activists and others against coup attempts in Venezuela. Join the call for action.


The situation in Venezuela is of growing concern to us, the undersigned.

Recent statements by the US have signalled clearly an attempt to support or even directly facilitate a coup. The government of Nicolas Maduro is democratically elected.  Venezuela’s economic problems and the instability caused as a result, are caused almost entirely from the sanctions imposed by the US and followed in sheep-like fashion by its allies. We call on all conscientious people to show their solidarity with Venezuela, its government and people who have stood as a bulwark against rapacious US exploitation.

Please join whatever civil society solidarity action in your country that you can. If you wish to add your name to the list of signatories, please email info@ihrc.org with your name, affiliation (if to be cited) and country.
