Venezuela: From the “Destruction” of Chavismo to the Epicentre of the Anti-Imperialist Left By Arnold August

9 July 2019 — Global Research
Who would have thought that, during the attempted coup d’état in Venezuela on January 23 and its immediate aftermath, Caracas would become, only five months later, the epicentre of the Latin American left? The XXV São Paulo Forum is planned for July 25–28 in the very Caracas that was supposed to be in the hands of the US and its allies. The day of the coup attempt, international hemispheric right-wing reaction – from the north, in Ottawa, through Washington, DC, to Bogotá and southward to Lima and Santiago de Chile – was ready to get the champagne bottles popping.

Criminal US Sanctions & Passive Mass Murder Of Venezuelans By State Terrorist Trump America by Dr Gideon Polya

10 July 2019 — Counter Currents

Economic experts  have determined that Trump American sanctions on the impoverished state of Venezuela have so far been associated with 5 million refugees and 80,000 excess deaths from deprivation in the last 2 years (alternative estimates are of 45,000 -173,000 such deaths). The Organization of American States predicts 8 million Venezuelan refugees by the end of 2020. Decent Humanity must utterly condemn and oppose this passive mass murder of Venezuelans by a morally degenerate Trump America.

U.S. Intensifies Actions for New Destabilizing Scenario. La Corriente Analysis

3 July 2019 — Internationalist 360°

A few days ago, on June 26, Minister Jorge Rodríguez informed the country about the dismantling of a new coup d’état and assassination plot. With the information and evidence presented by Rodriguez it was confirmed, once again, that the plans of the U.S. and the Venezuelan right wing to violently overthrow the constitutional government of Venezuela continue in progress, they do not stop. Almost two months after the defeat of the coup attempt of April 30, this new attempt, dismantled by the intelligence and security forces of the State, has forced us to reiterate the call not to decrease the warnings, not to lower our guard.

CIA Finances Another Group of Fraudsters: the Venezuelan ‘Opposition’ By Wayne Madsen

27 June 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Once again, the Central Intelligence Agency has been caught financing a group of grifters and fraudsters at the expense of the American taxpayers. In the latest case, just another in the agency’s 72-year history, the Trump administration-appointed ad hoc board of CITGO, the US subsidiary of the state-owned Venezuelan oil company, PDVSA, stands accused of steering $70 million of escrowed funds, earmarked for PDVSA’s fiscal year 2020 bond, to the pockets of CIA-supported officials of the Venezuelan opposition “Popular Will” party headed by the so-called “interim president” of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó.

The Day Venezuela Went Dark: Unknown Story Behind the “Blackout”

8 June 2019 — Internationalist 360°


At 4:42 on the afternoon of March 7, the Metro lines of Caracas, in the Venezuelan capital, went out. The passengers walked out of the tunnels and, out in the street, saw that the traffic lights were off, that communications did not work, that the bus stops were beginning to be crowded. They thought that the service would be restored in hours.
