US sanctions caused Venezuelan rally


The Venezuela citizens came up to rally on behalf of a “world protest day” in respond to the economic war, that the U.S. conducts.

The protesters carried the posters with such signs as “No more Trump” and “Hands off Venezuela” while other rallies in the countries like France, German, Italy, Argentina and South Korea.

The President Nicolas Maduro greeted the crowded street regarding them as “warriors of the fatherland” who were “prepared to overcome the blockade of the gringo empire.”

He accused of a potential usurper Juan Guaido who introduced himself as a Venezuelan president in January. He was recognized by the U.S. and E.U. and many Latino-American countries but could not managed to succeed in a government capture regardless the attempts of revolution in the country in April.

The President Maduro hit Mr. Guaido for “requesting and supporting all this economic aggression against our finances, commerce, food and medicines.”

The report posted by Washington-based Center for Economic and Political Research April revealed a 31% rise of mortality since 2017 to 2018 that is equaled to 40000 of excess deaths through “sanctions [that] are depriving Venezuelans of lifesaving medicines, medical equipment, food, and other essential imports.”

Income of billion dollar suffered, while sovereign shares were frozen due to the US attempts to defeat socialistic government of Venezuela.

“However crude and criminal the measures of the imperialist, racist government of Donald Trump may be, Venezuela has a way forward and the roads of prosperity, work and production will open,” Mr. Maduro claimed.

Besides, opposition representatives during the negotiations with the Norwegian powers vowed to ask the Trump Administration to cancel all the sanctions but did not do it. On August 5, Trump imposed tougher sanctions  against Venezuela. Therefore, Venezuela removed from the negotiations last week.

“We are prepared to talk and reach agreements, but when there is respect for Venezuela. If there is no respect, there will be struggle,” Maduro said.
