Britain’s Theft of Venezuela’s Gold Is Part of Illegal US ‘Regime Change’ Agenda

On 2 July 2020, the High Court in the UK made the outrageous decision to approve the British government’s blatant theft of more than $1bn of Venezuela’s gold reverses deposited in the Bank of England. This is just the latest craven manoeuvre by the British government in its quest to be a loyal junior partner in the Trump administration’s efforts to overthrow the legitimate government of Venezuela. In their criminal adventures to plunder Venezuela’s gold, oil and other lucrative resources both Britain and the US are exposing themselves before the entire world as having no interest at all in supporting human rights, freedom and democracy in Venezuela. On the contrary, both Britain and the US continue to demonstrate their utter contempt towards the Venezuelan people and their right to determine their own future.    

L’Amérique latine se prépare à la crise des coronavirus – les pays en développement ont besoin de solidarité et non de sanctions

Le coronavirus se répand rapidement dans un certain nombre de pays d'Amérique latine, menaçant la vie de millions de personnes sur le continent. Dans cette situation de vie et de mort, les populations d'Amérique latine ont besoin de solidarité et d'assistance pour faire face à une crise qui a submergé les systèmes de santé de certaines des économies les plus riches et les plus avancées du monde. La réponse des gouvernements d'Amérique latine a jusqu'à présent varié considérablement. Les pays dont les dirigeants sont orientés vers le socialisme ont adopté des mesures préventives strictes. En revanche, le président d'extrême droite du Brésil, Jair Bolsonaro, poursuit l'approche inverse, se joignant à Donald Trump pour minimiser totalement la crise et ne pas agir, ce qui risque de provoquer une catastrophe et des morts en masse dans un pays de 210 millions d'habitants.

América Latina se prepara para la crisis del coronavirus: los países en desarrollo necesitan solidaridad, no sanciones

El coronavirus se está propagando rápidamente en varios países de América Latina, lo que supone una amenaza para la vida de millones de personas en todo el continente. En esta situación de vida o muerte, la población de América Latina necesita solidaridad y asistencia para hacer frente a una crisis que ha desbordado los sistemas de salud de algunas de las economías más ricas y avanzadas del mundo. La respuesta de los gobiernos de América Latina ha variado considerablemente hasta ahora. Los países con un liderazgo de orientación socialista han adoptado estrictas medidas preventivas. Por otra parte, el presidente de ultraderecha del Brasil, Jair Bolsonaro, está siguiendo el enfoque contrario, uniéndose a Donald Trump para restarle importancia a la crisis y no tomar medidas, lo que supone un riesgo de catástrofe y de muertes masivas en un país de 210 millones de personas.

Latin America braces for coronavirus crisis – developing countries need solidarity not sanctions

The coronavirus is spreading rapidly in a number of countries in Latin America – posing a threat to the lives of millions of people across the continent. In this life and death situation the people of Latin America need solidarity and assistance to deal with a crisis that has overwhelmed the healthcare systems of some the world’s richest and most advanced economies in the world. The response of governments in Latin America has so far varied considerably. Countries with a socialist oriented leadership have adopted strict preventative measures. On the other hand the ultra-right wing President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, is pursuing the opposite approach, joining Donald Trump in totally downplaying the crisis and failing to take action, which risks catastrophe and mass deaths in a country of 210 million people.

US ramps up pressure on Venezuela after failed coup attempt

Last week the Venezuelan people resoundingly defeated the latest US-backed coup attempt against their government. Washington’s puppet and fake ‘interim President of Venezuela’, Juan Guaido, led the ineffective and small attempt to overthrow the legitimate and democratic Venezuelan government. In the face of this tactical defeat, the US administration continues to intensify its offensive against the Venezuelan government and people through harsh economic sanctions, military threats and subversive attacks.

5 reasons to oppose the US offer of ‘aid’ to Venezuela – it’s a pretext for military intervention

There are mounting fears that under the guise of delivering ‘humanitarian aid’ the US is trying to stage-manage a confrontation to provide a pretext for a US military attack on Venezuela.    In an act of brazen cynicism the US is offering the Venezuelan people, who it is currently attempting to starve through economic sanctions, ‘humanitarian aid.’ The Venezuelan government has rejected this ‘aid’ on the grounds that it is not a genuine offer to help but on the contrary a part of the US plan to achieve “regime change” in Venezuela, in contravention of international law.

Trump’s coup attempt in Venezuela intensifies: sanctions, military threats and political pressure

The Trump administration is attempting to bully the Venezuelan people into submission through a combination of economic sanctions, military threats and intense international political pressure. The goal of the US administration is to force Venezuela’s democratically elected government out and to replace it with a puppet regime loyal to US imperialism, under the Presidency of the unelected Juan Guaido.

Trump’s attempted coup in Venezuela

Donald Trump’s decision on Wednesday 23 January to recognise the unelected right wing opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s “interim President” is confirmation that a coordinated operation led by the US to bring about regime change, which is illegal under international law, is underway. Following this outrageous announcement, Trump was asked whether he would consider military action against Venezuela and he replied: “all options are on the table.” The White House is also considering the ‘nuclear option’ of imposing sanctions on Venezuela’s crude oil which would have a devastating effect on the economy.
