“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” – Martin Luther King
This essay represents a snapshot of my own understanding of the Venezuelan crisis. It started as a very limited effort to better educate myself in order to write my representatives and argue against a U.S. military invasion of Venezuela, however I soon uncovered far more than I had anticipated when I began, and furthermore discovered that most of this information flatly contradicted what we are reading in the mainstream press and hearing from most politicians. All of the opinions expressed are my own and they are based upon reading the references provided for the reader in this report.Read more
The Green Party of Santa Clara County stands in opposition to the US-led coup in Venezuela against the democratically-elected socialist President Nicolas Maduro. We also ask Wells Fargo - aka "Oily Wells" - to stop funding the worst environmental fossil fuel projects on the planet through a march from Palo Alto to San Francisco. Oil wars and oil wells are killing people and the planet. The Green Party's message of People, Planet, Peace Over Profit has never rung so true.Read more

Washington, DC – Elliott Abrams' past took center stage when he testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on February 13, 2019. The combination of protests over his past war crimes and perjury along with the tough questioning by Rep. Ilhan Omar resulted in Abrams being publicly shamed on national television.
The controversy over the US coup forced the right-wing chairman of the Committee, Eliot L. Engel, to announce his opposition to US military action in Venezuela.Read more
The Green Party of the United States stands in opposition to the regime-change politics of the United States directed at the people of Venezuela and expresses condemnation of the recent blows to the Venezuelan economy in the form of the United States' handing over banking access and funds to the opposition led by Juan Guaidó and UK's blocking of access to gold belonging to Venezuela. This sentiment is long held by the Greens as our platform plank on foreign policy states: "In the area of trade, third- and fourth-world economies and resources are being ravaged and our own economy and job security undermined by global corporatization, which concentrates greater power in the hands of fewer interests who are unaccountable to the vast majority of the world's people."Read more

As expected, some liberals and supposed anarchists are bringing up Maduro's problems. Not sure how that justifies US intervention and war. Obviously, these people either do not know or deny how the US via the CIA and other ways has intervened globally and wrecked havoc. Sometimes Liberals and so called Anarchists, probably trust fund babies, are useful idiots for Capitalism and Imperialism. So let the accusations reactionary voices respond.Read more
