Milwaukee, March 13, 2020: Economic Sanctions as Acts of War Panel Discussion

Image result for popular resistance

The U.S. government and its European allies have been illegally using unilateral economic sanctions (“Unilateral Coercive Measures”) as a weapon of war and mass destruction to topple governments that do not submit to the U.S. and European states’ domination of their country. The main objective of these unilateral sanctions is to destroy those small countries’ economies and bring their people to their knees through mass starvation so they will be left with no choice but to revolt against their own government. This criminal, anti-human policy of targeting defenseless populations is in clear violation of United Nations Charter and International Law.

Panel:

Kevin Zeese of Popular Resistance on the effects of sanctions in Venezuela and Iran. Kevin is currently on trial for being a protector of the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC, at the request of the Venezuelan government. The Embassy Protectors will not be able to tell the jury that Guaido is not the elected president or mention International Law.

Tom Seery, of Peace Action of WI who traveled to Iraq during the UN sanctions that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children. He accompanied a relief delegation to Iraq in 1998.

Art Heitzer, Chair of the Cuba Committee of the National Lawyer’s Guild and active in the Wisconsin Coalition to Normalize Relations with Cuba, on the US economic blockade which since 1060 has attempted “to bring hunger, desperation and overthrow of government” in Cuba.
