>>> *NEW PARLIAMENTARY PETITION* SIGN TODAY! <<<
No to Canada’s Threats & Sanctions On Venezuela!
https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-1353

This event will take place on the traditional and unceded territories of the Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilwətaɁɬ), the Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm), and the Squamish (Skwxwú7mesh) Coast Salish Nations.

This week, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Latin America – and promoting “regime change” in Venezuela is high on his agenda. In fact, the tour began with Tillerson proclaiming, “President Maduro could choose to just leave…If the kitchen gets a little too hot for him, I'm sure that he's got some friends over in Cuba that can give him a nice hacienda on the beach, and he can have a nice life over there.”

This gross disrespect for the right of the people of Venezuela to determine their own government is further expressed by the fact that the governments of the United States and Canada have declared that they will not recognize the results of the upcoming Presidential elections in Venezuela, which are scheduled to take place before April 30, 2018. Unbelievably hypocritical, given the fact that Presidential elections are what the U.S. government and their imperialist allies have been demanding of Venezuela all along!

As the governments of the U.S. and Canada ramp up their campaign of threats, sanctions and intervention in Venezuela, we must unite in the streets in defense of the sovereignty and self-determination of the people of Venezuela. Join the Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice Venezuela Solidarity Campaign in Vancouver on Friday, February 9 to demand:

> U.S. AND CANADA RESPECT THE SOVEREIGNTY & SELF-DETERMINATION OF THE VENEZUELAN PEOPLE!
> NO TO REGIME CHANGE IN VENEZUELA!
> NO TO SANCTIONS& THREATS AGAINST VENEZUELA!
