The World Peace Council denounces the ongoing plans and actions to destabilize the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela by reactionary forces and groups with the support of imperialist forces. The recent violent orchestrated events in Caracas and other regions of the country show clearly the intention of the local oligarchy and its foreign supporters which are aiming at putting obstacles to the efforts of the elected government of the country to empower the people and to solve social problems and needs.The economic sabotage in multiple ways, the violent provocations and intimidation of the people are going hand in hand with the nostalgia of the old establishment, which is losing power and privileges and therefore is acting subversively against the efforts of the Bolivarian revolution and its forces.
The WPC expresses its full-hearted solidarity to its member organisation in Venezuela, the COSI (Committee for International Solidarity), to the anti-imperialist forces of the country and to the Venezuelan people.The World Peace Council and the peace loving people all over the world are confident that the Venezuelan people will win this battle on the road to become masters of their fortunes, with sovereignty and dignity.
