Since attempting a coup against the democratically elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro on January 23, 2019 the U.S. government and their allies, including the government of Canada, have been escalating their brutal intervention campaign. This includes increasing sanctions against Venezuela and continuing to make dangerous threats against the Maduro government and the people of Venezuela.
On February 8 the Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice – Venezuela Solidarity Campaign held a monthly protest action at the U.S. Consulate demanding U.S./Canada Hands Off Venezuela! This was followed by a petition drive and info display in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery in downtown Vancouver.
The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver issued a call for a rally to oppose outside intervention in Venezuela by Canada, the US and other countries. This rally on February 9 was endorsed by the Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice – Venezuela Solidarity Campaign who joined in participating.
