Lift the sanctions on Venezuela

Solidarity activists rallied around Australia on July 27 calling on the Australian government to oppose the US economic sanctions on Venezuela.


Activists used the rallies to promote an open letter to the Australian government calling for it to:

• reverse its recognition of Guaidó as “interim president” of Venezuela;  

• refuse to cooperate with the United States’ economic sanctions on Venezuela, and put pressure on the US and European nations to lift all sanctions;

• respect the sovereignty of Venezuela by categorically ruling out any support for a military intervention against Venezuela and condemning the calls by the US, as well as the Lima Group and OAS officials, for a military overthrow of the Maduro government.
