Statement of theVenezuelaPeaceandSolidarityCommitteeofVancouver
DEFEND VENEZUELA AGAINST MERCENARIES ATTACKS!
The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver (VPSC) steadfastly defends the Venezuelan Bolivarian government's swift action to put down a contingent of armed mercenaries on May 3. It has the right to defend its borders and territories, and act against attacks on its people and space.
The foreign affairs ministry of Venezuela reports: "In the early hours of May 3, 2020, the Venezuelan Armed Force and the National Bolivarian Police repelled the incursion of a group of armed mercenaries into the coastal state of La Guaira.
Given that the source of the COVID-19 pandemic could well be live animal markets in China, especially those selling wild animals, I have been playing a small part in discouraging wild animal markets.
There are many good reasons to close them down. First of all, numerous zoonotic diseases can easily sprout from them. In conditions of such markets are on the whole deplorable, with multiple, acutely stressed animals stacked into small cages without proper cleaning, that probability is heightened. Just do a simple "Google" to check and see images of these horrid sights yourself.
THE MONROE DOCTRINE REMAINS A THREAT TO THE WORLD
-still the basis for US foreign policy regarding Europe and the Americas
Established by the US Congress over 196 years ago, the Montroe Doctrine still justifies the US' self-assigned right to dominate the Americas. It was mainly implemented to threaten European states with war should any of them attempt anew to expand their power over the Americas. However, it has great implications for all peoples of the Americas, mainly that the US assumed it ought to dominate and run the Americas.
STATEMENT OF ILPS COMMISSION 4 ON THE QUESTION OF CEASING
HOSTILITIES DURING THE PANDEMIC
PEACE WITH SOCIAL JUSTICE! END IMPERIALIST OCCUPATION
SUPPORT THE JUST STRUGGLES OF THE PEOPLES FOR SOCIAL
AND NATIONAL LIBERATION!
Commission 4 of the International League of Peoples’
Struggles (ILPS), an anti-imperialist alliance of organizations engaged in mass
struggles, is concerned with wars of aggression and counter-revolution and
nuclear weapons and all weapons of mass destruction.
NO WAR MEASURES ACT! Media in Canada seems to be pushing for it, but think about what it means. Army in the streets, police making random checks, raiding homes. Stop congratulating China, which can be blamed for allowing conditions where the virus thrived in the first place. Second, the official word of China cannot be trusted; it is notorious for misrepresenting the truth. It is evident China authorities suppressed doctors' warnings of the new virus in the beginning, punishing them for saying anything about it. Finally, let's look at China's enforcement: random body temperature checks done and anyone just with a high temperature hauled away by the police. (They can be many explanations for a fever.) Police welding doors to residences shut. People with other serious medical conditions not able to exit homes.
END GENERAL ECONOMIC SANCTIONS NOW!
Statement for Global Days against Sanctions that Harm the People
Some solidarity and social justice organizations called for a global weekend of actions from March 13 to 15. The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver (VPSC) joins in the actions against the blanket sanctions imposed by US imperialism and its allies that mostly aim to weaken states and movements of the people that stand up to imperialist interference, plunder and exploitation. Far from securing peace, human rights and economic development, they cause shortages of daily necessities and hardship to the working people.
Solidarity for the people of Bolivia!
At the international, anti-imperialist conference held in Caracas on Jan. 24, Pres. Maduro announced a call for a global day of solidarity with the Bolivian people, citing February 25.
The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver joins in expressing strong solidarity with the people of Bolivia. We deplore the recent coup that destroyed the advancement of Bolivian people's quality of life, independence and rights. We support the people's movement, especially that of the indigenous people, lead by the champion of workers', farmers' and indigenous peoples' rights, the unjustly ousted President Evo Morales.
POWER in the USA
-a child of the US
imperialist military-industrial complex; profits and service to corporations
and the military come before people
reactors are dangerous, however used, because of their potential for colossal
explosions. For this reason, both nuclear weaponry and nuclear energy have been
sharply criticized from the very beginning of the development of this
technology. Objections to science being subordinated to both military and
commercial interests abound. Nevertheless, nuclear armed weapons and nuclear
power stations have proliferated.

The United States drone
assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi commander Abd Mahdi al-Muhandis, along with eight others on January 3,
global wave of opposition to the US imperialism’s latest act of terror and
aggression washed through Iraq and throughout the Middle East, around Europe
and in many cities in North America on January 4 and 5. Commission 4 of the
ILPS salutes this staunch response and encourages more action to show
solidarity for just peace and deter an outbreak of global or regional war in
response. We applaud the Iraq government’s resolution to get US forces out of
Iraq as we do NATO’s decision to suspend the NATO mission led by Canadian
forces in Iraq.
