On the Latest Coup Attempt Against the Socialist Government and People of Venezuela

The Philipines Venezuela Solidarity Network -- Phil-Ven-Sol -- strongly condemns the recent coup attempt which seeks to overthrow the democratically-elected government of Venezuela in order to reverse the achievements of the socialist Bolivarian process.

The recent failed coup attempt was revealed in a nationally televised address on February 12 by President Nicholas Maduro. It was carefully planned and involved four stages: creating an economic assault on the country; creating an international debate around a supposed humanitarian crisis; a political coup involving officials who would turn on the government, and; finally a military coup that would lead to the installation of a transitional government.

The coup plotters even planned to bomb Miraflores Palace and the Telesur offices in Caracas. The plan included conducting assassinations on both members of the opposition and the government, including president Maduro, during the ensuing chaos once the coup unfolded.

The US, which has backed previous coup attempts, including against the former President Hugo Chavez in 2002, has been implicated in the recent coup plot. Those involved were paid in US dollars and one of the coup plotters was granted a visa to the United States in case the coup plot failed.

Such a coup plot is not the first or the last attempt to remove the democratically-elected government in Venezuela and to defeat the Bolivarian revolutionary process in which poses a threat to US imperialist interests in the region.

We hereby:

-       Denounce undemocratic means which seek to overthrow the revolutionary Bolivarian government of Venezuela

- Oppose all imperialist intervention in Venezuela.

-       Reaffirm our solidarity with the people of Venezuela in defence of the Bolivarian revolutionary process and their great effort in building Socialism in the 21st century.
