Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice Venezuela Solidarity Campaign strongly condemns the August 4, 2018 assassination attempt in Caracas, Venezuela against the democratically elected Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Reports indicate that the attack was carried out by drones armed with explosives at a military event where President Maduro was giving a speech, callously putting the lives of many Venezuelan people at risk. Venezuela’s Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez has reported that President Maduro was not harmed, however, seven National Guard soldiers were injured.

This attack is yet another example that Venezuela’s violent right-wing opposition, supported by the United States and their imperialist allies, including Canada, continues to use violence and terrorism to attempt to overthrow the government of Venezuela and reverse the gains of the Bolivarian revolutionary process.

As people living in the U.S. and Canada we must not forget the hand that the U.S. government and their allies played in the 2002 failed coup d’état against President Chavez, and the continued role that the governments of the U.S., Canada and the European Union have forcing “regime change” in Venezuela. As peace-loving people in Canada, we denounce the role of the government of Canada in supporting the violent right-wing opposition in Venezuela and demand an immediate end to all threats and sanctions against Venezuela.

The Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice Venezuela Solidarity Campaign stands with President Maduro and the revolutionary people of Venezuela as they defend their sovereignty, self-determination and the Bolivarian revolutionary process!

U.S. AND CANADA RESPECT THE SOVEREIGNTY & SELF-DETERMINATION OF THE VENEZUELAN PEOPLE!
NO TO REGIME CHANGE IN VENEZUELA!
NO TO SANCTIONS& THREATS AGAINST VENEZUELA!
