(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - International, Venezuela: No corrupt potentate, no pro-US puppet: for freedom (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Sat, 9 Feb 2019 11:38:29 +0200
Because the current anti-Maduro revolt is above all a revolt against misery,
authoritarianism and corruption, it deserves to have another spokesman than the sad
Washington puppet named Juan Guaido. No to imperialist interference, it is up to the
Venezuelan people to take their destiny into their own hands ! ---- In Venezuela, the
Maduro government is under increasing pressure from the streets, while its popular support
has narrowed significantly for several years. ---- This is sparking foreign interference
from the United States, and South American and European states aligned with Washington. In
contrast, Hugo Chavez's heir is supported by Cuba, Russia and China. An additional episode
of the inter-imperialist rivalries of our time.
The threat of military intervention by the United States is unacceptable. Here and
everywhere in the world, it must be denounced and opposed. But this should not lead to the
silence that Venezuela's fed up with the misery of authoritarianism and corruption is such
that many of the people - whether on the spot or refugees abroad - also continue to to
demand the departure of Nicolás Maduro.
Maduro is a potentate whose only role today is to preserve the interests of a small
military and bourgeois caste, the " boligarchy ", which has long been limited to share the
spoils of oil revenue .
To read: " Venezuela:" Boligarchy "chaviste against pro-Washington oligarchy " , in
Alternative Libertaire, September 2017.
Facing him, a right-wing adventurer, representative of a bourgeoisie more traditionally
linked to the United States: Juan Guaido, knighted by Trump, Bolsonaro, Macron, Merkel ...
So in no case a hope for Venezuelan workers.
The interest of the Venezuelan popular classes would be to chase one without replacing it
with the other. Neither a boligarchy nor a pro-US bourgeoisie ... An anticapitalist left
remains to be invented. Will it be drawn in the current revolt movement ?
