4/19 Days of Solidarity with Venezuela - Recognize Maduro Presidency

DEFEND THE MADURO ELECTION IN VENEZUELA

 

NO TO ANY US-BACKED CAPRILES COUP

 

RESPECT VENEZUELA’S ELECTION RESULTS

 

HANDS OFF CUBAN DOCTORS

 

CHAVEZ PRESENTE, MADURO PRESIDENTE!

 

Right-wing elements backed by U.S. imperialism are attempting a coup against constitutional rule in Venezuela. Seven people in Venezuela have already been killed. There is a witch hunt against Cuban doctors who have made great sacrifice to provide health care there. The Venezuelan masses, other Latin Americans and progressives worldwide have stood up and said “no” to this coup, which follows the rightist defeat in that country’s free and fair election April 14.

 

There is no question that the Bolivarian candidate, Nicolas Maduro, won the election. With a much higher proportion of the population voting than in U.S. elections, Maduro’s victory was as substantial as Barack Obama’s last November and much stronger than any of George W. Bush’s. And he won this election even though 90 percent of the still privately owned media slandered him and his party throughout the campaign. It should be pointed out that Venezuela has an electoral process lauded by many including former US President Jimmy Carter.


No one outside Venezuela has any right to challenge the authenticity of the April 14 election. That the Obama administration has demanded a recount is only proof of the dangerous intervention of U.S. imperialism in Venezuelan and Latin American affairs.

 

Obama’s aggressive stand is a sign that Washington believes that the Bolivarian movement can be overthrown now that Hugo Chávez is no longer alive. The European Union and especially the Spanish regime has joined the U.S. in this attempt. This imperialist offensive must be stopped.
