Residents of Venezuela's capital of Caracas, as well as representatives from social movements, worker's unions and other organizations have mobilized to participate in the Anti-Imperialist March.

RELATED:

The mass demonstration is a rejection over U.S. President Donald Trump's recent statement that he was considering “many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary” to solve the nation's internal political affairs, according to AVN.

“With the objective of protecting its economic interests” the United States has historically spilled blood in the name of liberty and freedom," said Elisabeth Bellorin, a public worker. She encouraged viewers to question, “Up until now, which countries where they've stuck their noses is currently doing well? None. Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Libya are examples of death that the empire causes.”

Tell me how this is any different to our own TD`s who can't even settle bar tabs?
Our TDs don't engage in drug dealing, prostitution, explosions of nuclear devices or firing rockets at neighbouring countries.
None of the TDs is part of a gangster clan exploiting a whole country.
To compare a TD or MEP to the Kim clan is simply stupid and shows you have no idea what you are talking about.

Good. One needs to keep one's energy up when one is fighting CIA directed terrorism. How did you like the election results? 18 out of 23 governorships for Maduro's party. I must say the people of Venezuela really do love Maduro - and who could blame them?

This is one of the main reasons why there's hunger in Venezuela. A private company, which had received $85 million dollars in government subsidies to keep flour prices down - deliberately let 55 tons of flour rot in an effort to help the US backed "opposition" spread chaos in the country. In my view, it's sheer insanity allowing privateers - who will always be open to bribes from the CIA - to be in control of the food supply. The Army should take over all essential food distribution immediately.

No Humanitarian Crisis in Venezuela, says UN Expert, Condemning International Sanctions

The expert said that the international community must be made aware of the dismal impact U.S. sanctions have had on the country.
There is no humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, declared UN expert Alfred De Zayas Tuesday, having spent a week in the country assessing the situation there.

“I agree with FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and CEPAL (Economic Commission for Latin America and Caribbeans), who report there is no humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, although there may be some shortages and delays in distribution,” said De Zayas, who is from the UN Organization for the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitative International Order.


The expert said that the international community must be made aware of the monopolies, smuggling and corruption that has emerged under the U.S.-led “economic and financial war that includes sanctions and pressures.”

Condemning the media campaign against the country, he affirmed that dialogue will be key to protecting human rights there. In that vein, De Zayas praised President Nicolas Maduro for his consistent efforts to dialogue with the opposition.

Well, life certainly isn't better for the Palestinians in Palestine than it was before the Nakba in 1948. And as for Venezuela, I'm sure life was better for the millionaire landowners who could rape the peasant girls at will and kill anyone they didn't like.
