World Peace Council Statement of Solidarity with Venezuela

Fwd: World Peace Council Statement in Solidarity with Venezuela

Statement of Condemnation of the Decision of USA Against Venezuela

The World Peace Council condemns strongly the decision of the US Attorney General, on behalf of the US administration, to announce criminal charges against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and other high-ranking officials with the pretext of their alleged involvement in international drug trafficking.

The US General Attorney threatens to designate the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela as “a state sponsoring terrorism”. This decision of the US-administration constitutes not only a further escalation in the provocations, coercive measures and interference against a sovereign country, it proves also the cynical and arrogant approach of the USA, which is using the critical times of the pandemic of COVID 19 worldwide, to impose new additional sanctions on the country and its people.

The people of Venezuela are already suffering from the sanctions and restrictions imposed by the US imperialists and its allies from EU and the “Lima Group”, which do not allow the country to purchase medicine and other vital products since more than one year. It is the same forces who recognize a self-proclaimed puppet as their “chosen leader” against any legitimacy, logic and international law and it is the same forces which do not allow during the COVID 19 crisis the country to buy and provide technical equipment and health products for the National Health System in the international markets.

The new decision of the USA today, acting as the “world sheriff” and announcing millions of US Dollars for the capturing of the legitimate President Nicolas Maduro, officers and ministers of the country has no precedent and are arbitrary and void.

The WPC expresses its profound solidarity to the people of Venezuela, to the anti- imperialist peace-loving forces in their struggle to defend their sovereign right to choose their leadership and destiny alone and without any foreign interference and to fight back the imperialist aggression, interference and provocations.

We call upon all WPC members and friends to strengthen the solidarity actions with the people of Venezuela and to plan for the 19th April, which is the International Day in Solidarity with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, actions in protest of the imperialist threats and actions in solidarity of the Venezuelan people in coordination with our Member Organisation in Venezuela (Committee for International Solidarity and Struggle for Peace-COSI)

Dove of Peace

Friends, my new video in partnership with Susan Ruggles, 'The Dove Of 
created in solidarity with those urging thorough, impartial 
investigation, diplomacy, negotiation,
the hard, rewarding work of peace-making, instead of the disastrous rush 
to war,
leading to the ongoing catastrophes in Iraq and elsewhere.

This is the 8th Ruggles/Taylor co-creation, all aspiring to contribute 
something positive
to very difficult challenges around social justice, environmental, 
pro-peace, and related concerns.

If interested, you can access them all on my website:

May we all do our best to make a difference

The Kingian Way | Nonviolent Civil Disobedience

Every time we hear the news, we are struck by the tragic politics of our country’s leaders. This, along with the epidemic of violence, poverty, racism, injustice, environmental destruction and war, is evil and oppressive.

Dr. King stated, “First, non-violence is resistance to evil and oppression. It is a human way to fight back.”

Struggle for A World Without Walls

Israeli Separation WallIsraeli Separation Wall

The walls rise up in the dry arid land, marching over the hills, cutting through cities and towns, destroying farmlands, ancient orchards, wetlands, tribal lands, nature preserves. They are punctuated by watchtowers, border patrols and soldiers, keeping people from crossing arbitrary lines in the sand. Those who dare to attempt an illegal crossing are shot or imprisoned. Some are shot just for being near the wall. It is the same ugly monstrosity in both Palestine and at the US-Mexican border.

Our Lobbying Partner - FCNL

Peace Action of Wisconsin is collaborating in our lobbying visits with the Milwaukee Advocacy Team of Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL). FCNL is a Quaker related organization that has worked for peace and justice nationally since 1940. This national grassroots network of 80 advocacy teams is trained to lobby congress, write letters and other forms of advocacy work. Working with other teams increases the effectiveness.

Members of Peace Action have joined the Milwaukee team of FCNL for many visits to Senators Baldwin and Johnson and to Representatives Moore and Sensenbrenner. This year the visits focused on urging them to support legislation that would prevent the president from use of military force in North Korea without the consent of Congress and to allow humanitarian aid to be delivered to North Korea.

In October, Peace Action joined FCNL in a visit to Senator Ron Johnson’s office to oppose US involvement in the war in Yemen. We asked that he work to end this illegal and immoral war.
