No U.S. War on Venezuela!

Hindi tayo maaaring manahimik sa harap ng pinakabagong giyera ng US laban sa sambayanang Venezuela!

Si Nicolas Maduro ay presidente ng Republikang Bolivar ng Venezuela, dalawang beses nang binoto ng mga mamamayan sa isang halalang inobserbahan ng buong mundo.

Mula nang ihalal noong 1998 si Hugo Chavez, walang-tigil ang pasimuno ng US sa pagpapalit ng administrasyon sa Venezuela.

Ngayong si Donald Trump ang pangulo ng US, lumalala ang mga hakbang nito, mula mga banta ng ‘all-out’ o todong kaharasang militar, pandarambong ng bilyon-bilong dolyar sa mga mamamayang Venezuelano at pamamayagpag ng mga kasinungalingan sa pandaigdigang media.

Daan-daang taon nang nakiki-gyera ang US sa mga mamamamayan ng buong mundo sa mga kudeta, pananakop at giyerang-ekonomikal.

Si Juan Guaido ay papet ng US. Hindi siya ang kinatawan ng masang Venezuelano. Katawa-tawa ang mismong ideya na maaaring syang manumpa bilang pangulo sa isang rali para sa interes umano ng “pagtanggol sa demokrasya”.

Ginigiit ng mga maka-kanan sa Venezuela na ang mga eleksyon ay dinaraya dahil hindi sila lumalahok dito. Sa halip, nakikibahagi sila sa pananakot at kaharasan na hindi nalalayo sa sistemang Jim Crow na ginamit sa mga African-Americans sa “deep south” o katimugan ng US.

Ang mga sanction at pagmamanipula sa pera (currency) ang tunay na ugat ng paghihirap sa Venezuela. Sina Marco Rubio at ang mga maka-kanan sa media ang gumagabay sa opposisyon ng Venezuela mula sa Miami.

Hindi nasisikmura ng US na ang alinmang bansa sa mundo ay maaaring magtamasa ng likas na yaman o bunga ng lakas-paggawa (labor) nito nang hindi sumasandig sa Pentagon at Washington.

Tinataglay ng Venezuela ang pinakamalalaking reserba ng oil sa buong mundo, at mayaman ito sa ginto at ibang yamang-mineral.

Pahayag ng isa sa mga arkitekto ng Giyera sa Iraq na ang “pagpapalit ng rehimen sa Venezuela ay isang opportunidad na hitik sa ganansya para sa Wall Street”.

Naniniwala tayo sa pahayag na ito.

Mula noong Rebolusyong Bolivar noong 1998, napakalaking hakbang ang isinasagawa upang i-ahon ang uring-manggagawa, Afro-Venezuelans at mga katutubo (indigenous) ng Venezuela. Malaki na ang isinulong ng mga mahihirap mula sa uring-manggagawa dahil ipinapatupad ng gobyerno ang mga polisiya at batas na lumalaban sa rasismo, diskriminasyon sa kasarian (sexism/homophobia) at kawalan ng pagkakapantay sa ekonomiya.

Sa kabila ng mga pag-sanction at pag-sabotahe, pinaiigting ng Venezuela ang isang sistemang demokratiko at bukas sa marami nang nagdaang mga halalan nito.

Nagbibigay ayuda (aid) ang Venezuela sa mga naghihikahos sa buong mundo sa pamamagitan ng gasolinang may subisidiyo at sa pagiging halimbawa sa buong mundo sa aspeto ng mga batas-paggawa (labor laws).

Ang mga ganansya na ito ay bahagi ng pandaigdigang-pakikibaka ng mga manggagawa at inaapi laban sa pinaka-mayayaman at pinaka-malalakas na kapitalista sa buong daigdig.

KAYA AMING GINIGIIT:

  • ITIGIL ng US ang lahat ng mga hakbang ng agresyon laban sa Republikang Bolivar ng Venezuela – Wakasan ang mga sanction, kudeta, at mga gawaing-mapanira sa ekonomiya nila, at igalang ang karapatan ng mga Venezuelano sa sariling-pagpapasya (self-determination)
  • ISAULI sa lalong madaling panahon ang nakaw na yaman ng lahat ng mga bansang sangkot sa pandarambong sa demokratikong gobyerno ng Venezuela.
  • PAGBAYARIN ng Wall Street ang paghihirap ang mga mamamayan ng Venezuela sa ilalim ng mga sanction at pagmamanipula sa pera (currency) nito.

Sa maka-internasyunalista at mapagpalayang ngalan ni Simon Bolivar, nangangako kaming kikilos at lalaban para sa soberanya ng Venezuela, habang inuunawa na ang mga tagumpay na ikinamit ng rebolusyong Bolivar ay ganansya sa lahat ng manggagawa at inaapi ng mundo.
