Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that President Trump has a “full range of options that we’re preparing for” -- to intervene in Venezuela. Such official talk means that U.S. military action is a big danger.
Click here to ask your Representative and Senators to support legislation blocking war on Venezuela.
Here is the message that you'll be sending:
As your constituent, I urge you to fully support H.R.1004 / S.J.Res. 11 to block unauthorized U.S. military action in Venezuela.
President Trump has been threatening military intervention in Venezuela. Moreover, his envoy Elliott Abrams refused to rule out an unauthorized military intervention in Venezuela when asked point-blank at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.
Invading Venezuela would not alleviate human suffering and would only add to the United States’ history of ruinous military interventions and would risk spiraling into a costly and devastating war of choice.
Please also ensure the safety of the Embassy Protection Collective -- a group of organizations and individuals staying inside the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, D.C. at the invitation of the elected Venezuelan government as an interim protectorate to stop the building from being taken over by non-elected, non-president Juan Guaidó. Many Collective members have been assaulted by Guaidó supporters and the police have refused to arrest those committing the criminal acts.
