(en) anarkismo.net: Venezuela And Another Attempted Invasion Of The Empire. Brazil: Milicos Na Rua by FAU - Federación Anarquista Uruguaya (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 15 Apr 2018 08:26:39 +0300

FAU's note translated into Portuguese. ---- The situation of shortages becomes increasingly complex in Venezuela. Large food conglomerates (such as Polar), along with various entities funded by CIA collaborative organizations (as well documented in various studies and articles) lead to a shortage of commodities with the aim of "destabilizing" the social situation and generating the conditions to put a government in tune with the interests of the US and the Venezuelan fascist right. ---- After the last elections, the right-wing party in the MUD (Mesa de la Unidad Democrática, coalition of Venezuelan political parties opposing the Bolivarian Revolution of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela) split, and part of it accepted the electoral result. The most stubborn part of the MUD maintains the CIA-designed destabilization plan, very similar to that used to wage the coup in Chile in 1973.

In recent weeks, Rex Tillerson, now a former US State Department secretary and oil contractor linked to Exxon, a friend of Vladimir Putin, has toured South America, including Argentina, Peru, and Colombia, with purpose of adjusting the siege to Venezuela. It achieved the commitment of the governments of these countries, especially of Peru, to prevent Venezuela from attending the 8th Summit of the Americas on April 13 and 14. Peru (host country) did not invite the Venezuelan government and this generated tensions throughout the Andean region. Several countries in the area demand that the elections in Venezuela be postponed, but none have been so active in rejecting the Temer coup, for example. To this group of countries Uruguay now adds itself, doing the tasks of the empire, putting itself totally under its wing. It is the end of the "more independent" policy toward the US that had been suggested in the previous period. Vázquez and Nin Novoa have direct line with Washington and Almagro.
On the other hand, maneuvers and attempts to deploy paramilitary forces in Venezuelan territory were denounced. It seems that the plan is to invade Venezuela with the dramatic social consequences that this would have. The US is regaining control of its "backyard" and will not tolerate any government that does not follow its score. Even the Nicaraguan Sandinista government suspended exports to Venezuela because of US pressure.

We again see the "soft blows" or "parliamentarians" of Paraguay and Brazil, an attempt to increase the military presence in the region, in order to keep controlled areas of direct US interest, such as Venezuela, one of the largest reserves of the world. Especially after the resounding failure of the imperial adventures in the Middle East.

These are more complex times for the peoples of the continent. The empire steps and adjusts the steps, does not want to lose ground and wants an effective and strong control of the populations and territories. There are your allies and they play heavy as well. In Brazil, federal intervention in the state of Rio de Janeiro is a laboratory of what will come to the whole country, with a strong militarization of social life, where the only thing the State proposes to provide to the poor is repression. The murder of Marielle Franco, a PSOL councilor who investigated federal intervention in Rio, and had repeatedly denounced repression and police action in the favelas, is a clear proof of the state of militarization being imposed in Brazil to destroy the rights of those who are below and impose a pure and hard neoliberal model.

These are times when everything that is reactionary advances. But in these times also the popular struggle and proposals of a different society like the one that proclaims the anarchism and are propagated in the daily militancy advances. Our comrades of the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (CAB) have been developing an important militancy and, therefore, the state also targets anarchism as a "worrying factor" for its interests and those of capital.

Another step opens in Latin America. In Uruguay, everything happens a little more slowly, but these winds are coming. These are complex times; times in which we must face the right on the street, in the work and study places, in the countryside, in all places where the construction of a different society is at stake. They are straining the rope ... We must also stress the popular organization at all levels, because these times require increasing levels of struggle and organization.
