US War on Venezuela
Orinoco Tribune: After 23 Years of Media Warfare Against Venezuela, the United States Says it Will Start a Media War The genocide perpetretor Elliott Abrams (mastermind of massacres and attacks in El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua) supervised of providing this “news” more than twenty years after this media war started. Journalistic reports say that “the United States is preparing a brand-new strategy versus Venezuela in which it will utilize the media as part of its pressure campaign versus Maduro.” Washington prepares the launch of media actions on radio, television and internet, in order to permeate Venezuelan territory … After this fast walk through of more than two decades of the media turned into cannons and bombs from the right, one has to question what the serial genocide Abrams is believing now when he talks about “starting” a media offensive. What are they going to do now, what can they try that they have not already attempted? We will see quickly enough.
United States Elliot Abrams Decides Venezuelas December Elections Already Fraudulent & & Venezuelas Response “The conditions for complimentary and fair elections are actually much worse today than they remained in May 2018, when Maduro held the governmental elections that democracies all over the world have actually stated were deceitful,” Abrams told press reporters. Following these declarations, Minister for Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza warned that the U.S. empire is plotting to screw up the election of the National Assembly to be hung on December 6 in the South American nation.
FAIR (Lucas Koerner): Media Cover for United States Clients Covid Catastrophes in Peru, Ecuador and Chile, Yet Smear Venezuelas Example Back in March, when coronavirus cases were beginning to surge in the United States and in South American allies such as Brazil and Ecuador, Washington was busy raising the alarm about the “expansion of Covid-19 pandemic in the region, if not worldwide, if Venezuela … stops working to resolve it.” Venezuela was reporting under 150 cases at the time. This scaremongering propaganda has actually been duplicated ad nauseam by the Western media since. Alongside Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Chile currently lead South America in overall Covid deaths per capita.
Speeches at 30th anniversary of the Sao Paulo Forum
Speech by Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega: “A New Consciousness is being created in the world, that we have to change the design and set up States that are genuinely filled with Humanism, of Solidarity, of love for Justice, love for Freedom, respectful of global law” Thebattle that Venezuela is waging is unprecedented in Our America. What we keep in mind is how the imperialists utilized to topple federal governments in the world with simply a note. One note was enough and the ruler would quit and leave … To face these infections that involve the health of our individuals we need to get rid of the most significant virus of all, the greatest infection that denies utilize the conditions or the possibility of confronting these infections that threaten health as well as we might, and that is Capitalism, that is the greatest virus, it is Neoliberalism, that is the biggest infection, the very essence of selfishness and evil.
Granma: Speech by Cuban President Díaz-Canel: Anti-imperialist unity is the method and strategy of triumph “The invincible example of Chavez now summons us to continue the struggle, with firmness and optimism, persuaded that there are no obstacles, however hard they might seem, that our peoples, unified, can not overcome, as Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba show today.
The region of the Americas is today regretfully the center of the pandemic. The neoliberal policies of numerous governments, set on placing the market above human lives, make it difficult to forecast the moment when a conclusive control of the illness will be possible. The spread of the virus is a fact, if we think about that the very first million cases were verified over 96 days, however the most recent million were counted within only 16.
The fraternal partnership of the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela, the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua and the Cuban Revolution, 3 transformations with governments completely devoted to providing and conserving lives well-being to their particular peoples; 3 revolutions that, dealing with the brutal assault of the empire and its allies in the neoliberal right on the continent, have, with combination and firmness, defended themselves and preserved, under very difficult conditions, the self-reliance, sovereignty and self-respect of the homeland of Bolivar and Chavez, of Sandino and Carlos Fonseca, of Marti and Fidel.
History is made by the people, even if it is written by others.
For the life and independence of our individuals; for the legacy of our founders, who taught us that even in the most difficult conditions it was always possible, it is always possible and will always be possible; for the new generations offering connection to the struggle, as Maduro explained; for anti-imperialist unity that is the method and method of triumph: We will fight, we will live and we will triumph!
Pasqualina Curcio on Venezuela Economic Situation and Class Relations
Orinoco Tribune (Pasqualina Curcio): Imperialisms Economic War Costs Venezuela Nearly $200 Billion Focusing on the financial measurement we have actually updated the estimations that we made in March 2019. At that point, losses triggered by this war amounted to $125 billion; we have now determined those for all of 2019, which amount to $68 billion. These losses break down therefore: $25 billion corresponds to cash and properties that have been robbed from us, while the other $169 billion represents what we have stopped producing from 2016 to 2019 as a result of the attack against state-owned oil and natural gas company PDVSA ($ 64 billion) and the attack on the bolivar ($ 105 billion).
2. Orinoco Tribune (Pasqualina Curcio): The Economy: Numbers Impossible to Manipulate.
In 2014 the Venezuelan economy pie chart was big and was dispersed as follows: 7 pieces went to the bourgeoisie, 7 to the salaried staff members and 2 to the State, amounting to 16 pieces. For 2017, it was 2 thirds the size of 2014, the economy fell 34% between 2014 and 2017. The bourgeoisie got 10 pieces rather of 7, the staff members 5 instead of 7 and the State 1 and not 2. this unequal circulation of the cake has been aggravating considering that 2018 due to the fact that from 2017 to June 2020 costs increased 716,308% as an effect of the attack on the bolivar, while nominal earnings increased by just 20,102%, and the acquiring power of private and public workers, plus the general public, plummeted 97%.
Is it to break the factor and the rule of the revolutionaries to propose that this cake be dispersed more equally; that the bourgeoisie not continue to take more than half the cake; that it return what it alienated to the workers in the social procedure of work; that wages be changed in the very same percentage and speed of costs until they reach decent levels?
Orinoco Tribune (Pasqualina Curcio): Salaries in Venezuela: Private Sector vs. Public Sector (II) All of us who work in public administration have likewise seen our income drop by 97% because August 2018 as a consequence of caused hyperinflation. We are a lot of people.In 2013 from all the economys production 40% went to the accounts of the capitalist and in 2017 this percentage increased to 50%, that is, the bourgeoisie, by way of revenue, is appropriating at least half of nationwide production, to the hinderance of salaries that went from 32% to 18% of GDP throughout the very same period.
PeoplesDispatch (Vijah Prashad): We will coup whoever we desire. Handle it.” Elon Musk and the topple of democracy Elon Musk, of the 1%, is much more open about what the US rulers have to do with than Trump. Business power will unseat governments for their own earnings. He condensed in his new tweet the arrogance toward the political life of other nations, and the greed toward resources that individuals like Musk think are their entitlement.
