The National Democratic Front of the Philippines most vigorously condemns the U.S. Trump regime for its total blockade of Venezuela in flagrant violation of the sovereignty of the Bolivarian Republic and the fundamental rights of the more than 30 million Venezuelans.
The revolutionary Filipino people join the 102 organizations and parties from more than 70 countries who participated in the XXV Sao Paulo Forum in Caracas last July 25-28, 2019, in pledging our firm solidarity with the heroic Venezuelan people, President Nicolas Maduro and the Venezuelan Armed Forces and Militia in resolutely upholding and defending their independence and sovereignty against the US imperialist economic and political aggression.
This latest flagrant criminal act of the Trump regime causes further extreme suffering on the Venezuelan population, causing even more denial of essential food and medicines urgently needed by the people. Under these dire circumstances, President Nicolas Maduro, the Venezuelan people and the Venuzuelan Armed Forces and Militia stand firm. They are inspired by the spirit and inspiring legacy of the Great Liberator Simon Bolivar and Comandante Hugo Chavez Frias. “Chavez vive! La lucha sigue!”
As President Maduro declared to the Venezuelan people, the Venezuelan Armed Forces and Militia, and to thousands of supporters in Latin America, the Carribean, and the rest of the world: “Juntos, todo es posible! Together, everything is possible!” Anti-imperialist forces throughout the world, united in struggle for sovereignty, independence, democracy and just peace can defeat the attacks of US imperialism.
Long live the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela!
Long live President Nicolas Maduro and the Venezuelan people!
Long live international solidarity!
