Repudiation to the terrorist attacks on Venezuela
Source: Resumen Latinoamericano / The Dawn News / July 1, 2017
Past Tuesday, June 27, the Venezuelan extreme right, which is directed from Washington, realized acts of aerial piracy, terrorism and armed attacks after the hi-jack of a helicopter and the launching of grenades over the Supreme Court of Justice and the Popular Power Ministry for Interior Relations, Peace and Justice.
This aggression of the wrongly named opposition, shows an absolute contempt towards life, physical integrity, institutions and democracy.
The terrorist escalation is implementing the same script that allowed the removal of democratic governments on other latitudes: a fierce defamatory campaign through media all around the globe; the utilization of regional organisms to condemn Venezuela. A siege towards the civilian and military institutions, an image of ungovernability; looting, thefts and food and medicine shortage; fires and destruction of the people’s installations: children’s hospital, warehouses and community centers; the utilization of childs as shields; extreme violence to the point of burning alive young Bolivarians.
The extreme gravity of these events is a provocation to generate a reaction from the Armed Bolivarian Forces to justify a military intervention which is being already prepared in Washington.
What does the OAS and its imperial secretary Luis Almagro say? How is it possible that three days have passed since an attack of such magnitude was committed and they have not pronounced themselves about it yet? How do the rightist governments of the region justify their silence while claiming to defend democracy and while they light the “opposition’s” fire?
In the dawn of the attacks we repudiated the attack from our Twitter account. Today we call the intellectuals and progressive sectors to avoid being accomplices of the destruction of the emancipating effort for which Commander Chávez gave his life for.
We convoke to our friends and committees to repudiate this violent escalation that violetas life, peace and democracy. We do it from the love and respect which bonds us to the people and the Bolívar’s Motherland. in defense of the progress achieved during two decades and of the CELAC’s Proclamation “Latin America Peace Zone”-
Defending the Bolivarian Venezuela and the anti imperialistic government of Nicolás Maduro, to support the call for a Constitutive Assembly, to denounce the lies, the deaths, the violence and the fascist putsch is to preserve life, peace and the future of all our peoples.
All our Solidarity is with Venezuela and its legitimate Government.
Fascists, you shall not triumph!
