Letter to the people of the United States: Venezuela is not a threat "... In the name of our long-term friendship we alert our American brothers and sisters, lovers of justice and freedom, of the illegal aggression committed by your government on your behalf. We will not allow our friendship with the people of the United States to be affected by this senseless and groundless decision by President Obama. ..."

National Call for Local Actions on Anniversary of Hugo Chavez's Death The Venezuela Strategy Group, a coalition of grassroots solidarity organizations, Venezuelans in the US, and Venezuela experts, encourages local activists to plan actions during March 5-8, 2015, to remember Chavez's legacy and to condemn US efforts to topple the democratically elected government of President Nicolás Maduro.
We can provide your local event with a handout highlighting the advances of the Bolivarian Revolution under Hugo Chavez's leadership and talking points to use with the press and elected officials. If you are planning an event, please send details to the Venezuela Strategy Group in care of the Alliance for Global Justice to Chuck@AFGJ.org. Include whether you would like a printable handout on Chavez's legacy and our Talking Points.
Begin today to plan an educational event, a march or rally, or whatever would be most effective in your community to commemorate the legacy of Hugo Chavez and to tell the US government, "Hands off Venezuela."
