Venezuelans on streets to slam and reject OAS and U.S. intervention

Hundreds of government supporters gather on the streets of Caracas on June 4 to repudiate the interference of the United States and the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS) in the internal affairs of Venezuela.

“For us, the mobilization of the people on the streets is the only language to denounce fascism and imperialism. And so on this day, for example, today on June 4, throughout the country we have the people on the streets.”

Protesters also shout slogans against the leadership of the National Assembly of Venezuela, which is dominated by the opposition coalition after the election in December last year.

“Venezuela is a free and sovereign country. And after 17 years of revolution we are freer, more independent, and more sovereign than ever. We are particularly careful as a people of sovereignty and independence, with the ability to solve our problems.”

Earlier this week, OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro called to invoke the organization’s Democratic Charter to suspend Venezuela from the organization, due to alleged “human rights violations and lack of democracy” of the government.
