NO COUP! NO WAR! HANDS OFF VENEZUELA!

Hands off venezuela logoThe International Marxist Tendency rejects the current attempt by US imperialism to carry out a coup in Venezuela. What we are witnessing is a blatant attempt to remove the Venezuelan government of president Maduro by a coalition of countries, led by Trump.

Jorge Martin on Downing Street Against the CoupThe United States has decided it is time for “regime change” in Venezuela, and is acting in a relentless manner to achieve it.

This is an imperialist coup attempt, which any socialist and even consistent democrat is duty-bound to oppose.
