55] --Witnessing Democracy
in Venezuela: Resisting Empire will take place on Thurs., Feb.
11 from 7 to 8:30 PM. The incoming
Biden administration quickly dispelled hopes he would depart from Trump's White
House sanctions policy on Venezuela. Anthony Blinken, Secretary of State,
recently stated that Washington would increase sanctions by making them
"more effective". Sanctions are not a positive alternative to
active wars but a prime component of hybrid imperial wars that kill innocents
as widely as direct confrontation. According to Blinken, opposition politician
Juan Guaido, discredited by the Venezuelan National Assembly, would
continue to be recognized by the US as the “interim president” of Venezuela and consequently he can
maintain control over Venezuela’s vast assets in the US and the UK.
Recently, he tragically blocked the use of these frozen funds to purchase
Covid-19 vaccines. It is an opportune time, post-Trump, to change to beneficial
policies for both countries, to reject false narratives that are the basis for US
policy ‘regime change’ in Venezuela. Evidence that refutes official US
policy is available from direct media resources in Latin America and
progressive US media. Join a webinar with embassy protectors Margaret Flowers, Adrienne Pine and David Paul, who went to Venezuela
as elections monitors. Learn about their experiences in Venezuela meeting
people across the country as well as about their evaluation of the election
process and the results. The webinar will be moderated by Hector
Figarella, a Venezuelan-American activist from Western MASS. Sign up at http://masspeaceaction.org/event/witnessing-democracy-in-venezuela-resisting-empire/.
