Condemn the US imperialist sanctions against Venezuela

On March 9, US President Barack Obama issued an executive order imposing sanctions on seven Venezuelan government and military officials, accusing them of alleged human rights violations and describing the situation in Venezuela as constituting an “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.”

The governments of several Latin American countries have rallied behind the government and people of Venezuela to condemn the fresh sanctions imposed by the US imperialists against that country.

The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), representing twelve countries of South America, issued a statement on March 14, condemning the US sanctions as “a threat to sovereignty and the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states.” The foreign ministers of all UNASUR's member nations signed the declaration at a special meeting in Quito, Ecuador. Prior to this meeting too, several Latin American heads of state condemned the sanctions and characterization of Venezuela as a “security threat” for the US.

The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has written an open letter addressed to the people of the US, published in the New York Times, demanding that the US government immediately cease its hostile actions against the Venezuelan government and people; that President Obama abolish the executive order declaring Venezuela a threat to U.S. national security, as has been requested by the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR); and that the US government retract its defamatory statements against the Venezuelan officials who were merely following government orders. He has also criticized the US administration for conspiring to overthrow his government in Venezuela.

One of the favourite weapons of US imperialism to carry out regime change in different countries is to incite reactionary forces to carry out provocations against ordinary people as well as security forces and spread anarchy and violence. When the state acts to end the situation of anarchy and violence, then the imperialist controlled media carries out an international campaign against alleged “human rights violations”, and for regime change. This kind of activity has been orchestrated with respect of Venezuela as well.

The US imperialists have traditionally considered the countries of Latin America as their “backyard”, to loot and plunder as they wish. In recent times, the stands taken by various governments of the Latin American countries, to unitedly oppose the moves of the US state and the US multinational corporations to interfere in their internal affairs, to stand up in defence of their national rights and national sovereignty, have become a thorn in the flesh of the US imperialists. The US imperialist state is trying all kinds of manoeuvres to crush this opposition and create instability in the region, which are being opposed by the Latin American governments and peoples.

Mazdoor Ekta Lehar condemns the sanctions imposed on Venezuela by the US imperialists and their efforts to interfere in the internal affairs of that country.
