Hands off Venezuela, Support the Venezuelan Embassy Protectors Collective. Welcome Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese.
In April-May, 2019, Venezuelan Embassy Protection Collective (EPC) members, at the request of the Venezuelan government of Nicolas Maduro, defended the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, D.C. for 37 days. Citing U.S. and international law (the Geneva Convention), they rejected the Trump administration’s imperial “appointment” of coup leader Juan Guaido to the Venezuelan presidency. The EPC members inside were cut off from receiving food, electricity and water. EPC members who tried to deliver food were physically assaulted. All EPC members were subjected to loud noises, strobe lights, harassment, threats and intimidation.
On May 16, federal agents raided the embassy and arrested the four remaining EPC members, who are now faced with felony charges, to wit, “interfering with U.S. government operations.” Government attorneys have demanded that the protectors pay $100,000 fines and serve one year in prison. Join us in demanding that all charges be dropped. Meet courageous defenders Kevin and Margaret.
