Hands Off Venezuela!
Friday, February 22, 4:30pm
Broadway between Front and Union
Downtown San Diego
Join us on Friday, February 22, 4:30-6pm at the Federal Building to demand Hands Off Venezuela. This will be one of many such events across the US (see https://www.nowaronvenezuela.org/ ).
The Venezuelan people have the right to determine their own destiny, free from interference from the US or other foreign powers. The current difficulties faced by the Venezuelan people must be solved by the Venezuelan people themselves, free from economic sanctions and military intervention from the US.
From the time of the Monroe Doctrine in 1823, the US has acted on its self-declared its right to oversee the affairs of Latin America. This has led to invasions and US-backed coups, including Guatemala (1954), Cuba (1961), Dominican Republic (1965), Chile (1973), El Salvador (1980s), Nicaragua (1980s), Honduras (2009), and now Venezuela, to cite only some of the most prominent examples. The result has been suffering, destruction, repression, and migration for the people, while a small handful reap profits at the expense of the multitude.
Living within the empire's heartland, we have a responsibility to oppose these policies. Our resources may be limited. However, by joining together to demonstrate our opposition to US intervention in Venezuela, we can send a message that people in San Diego and throughout the US opposes the interventionist policies of the US government.
This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the (former) San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice and the Green Party San Diego, and endorsed by the International Socialist Organization (San Diego).

Should the San Diego Region Prioritize Public Transportation?
YES! But we need your help. The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is in the process of creating the next Regional Transportation Plan that will be the blueprint for how we get from one place to another.
