Emergency rallies #HandsOffVenezuela


Today President Donald Trump recognized the leader of the illegally constituted National Assembly of Venezuela as the president of the country, despite him having zero electoral legitimacy and having never even participated in any election for the post. This declaration by the U.S. is designed to continue to lay the groundwork to legitimize a range of disruptive and destabilizing activities ranging from sanctions to armed coups. This is an extremely dangerous development.

Emergency rallies have been organized in multiple cities around the country to protest the attempted coup in Venezuela, the recognition of that coup by the governments of the U.S., Canada, and others, and to defend President Nicolás Maduro and the Bolivarian Revolution. We urge supporters to attend rallies where they can, and to organize rallies (and let us know so we can add them to the list below) where none have yet been organized.
