PCV Statement against the military aggression against the Libyan people and the presence of the President of the United States in Latin American territory, CARACAS, 21 MAR. 2011, Tribuna Popular

CARACAS, 21 MAR. 2011, Tribuna Popular TP .- The Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV) rejects the military aggression against the Libyan people and the presence of the President of the United States in Latin American territory, saying that at present the "concern of the people is the struggle for peace and against imperialist aggression. "

This was announced at a press conference,by the national secretary for international relations of the PCV, Latin American Parliament deputy, Carolus Wimmer, who emphasized that "the capitalist ruling-class is once again advancing imperialist aggression in its eagerness to take the energy resources of all our countries. "

The communist leader accused the United States and other members of the Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Resolution No. 1973 of the Security Council of the United Nations (UN), as being on the margin of international law.  "To threaten or attack Libya or any other country with international intervention is totally unjustified," he said.

For the Communist Party of Venezuela indiscriminate aggression on the Libyan people is done with the intention to weaken and to strike at the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in order to control energy resources.  "We reject such an active attack and join with the mobilizations that are taking place in Caracas against the embassies," said Wimmer.

The PCV supported the proposal made by the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, who proposed a peaceful alternative to foster a commission to mediate in Libya's internal conflict and seek a peaceful solution. This is the only real proposal still not too late for that, "he said.  Wimmer said that the conflict in Libya is a dispute for power, for it is the duty of governments worldwide to help peaceful solutions rather than the military aggression that is now being done indiscriminately as "smart bombs are not able to discriminate between civilians and military. "

"The United Nations was created after World War II, for peace, that is the role it should play and not give permission for war," said the communist leader.  The Party calls on the peoples and governments, to pressure the contending parties in Libya, through dialogue, it seeks a peaceful solution that benefits the vast majority of the Libyan people.

Obama's trip to Latin America seeks to regain control of our resources  For the Communist Party, is no coincidence, nor is it surprising that at the same time that there is military aggression against the Libyan people, the United States President Barack Obama, is making a tour of some Latin American countries.  "As Obama himself declared, has two objectives: One, as representing the interests of multinationals, seeking increased exports of waste products from the United States to our countries and, secondly, ensure that natural resources, energy, water and minerals pass  over under the control of the U.S. government, "said Wimmer.

The PCV called for strengthening the anti-imperialist front and join the protests  As part of this counter-imperialist, the Communist Party of Venezuela called on the Venezuelan people, parties and revolutionary movements to mobilize and strengthen the Anti-imperialist front against U.S. aggression and the aggression of the countries of capitalist Europe, stressing that Venezuela is also targeted by attackers.  In this framework, the PCV called to strengthen and consolidate the Bolivarian revolution against imperialism. "The only defense against assault, is a  people united with the revolutionary process, to successfully confront the media campaigns that seek to divide us," he said Wimmer.

Therefore, the Communists made a new call to accelerate the formation of the Broad Front and National Patriotic Pole, a broad range of all patriotic forces, to agree upon an agenda for collective and unified organization, "this is a urgent task to defend against economic and military aggression, "they said.

Mobilization agenda:

Tuesday March 22 at 12 m, protest against imperialist aggression, the U.S. Embassy.

Thursday, March 24, to express our solidarity with the Libyan people in the Libyan Embassy.

Saturday 26 March, "Day of the Right of peoples to armed rebellion", convened by the Continental Bolivarian Movement (MCB), in the parish on January 23 throughout the day with marches, forums and cultural activities in the Plaza Manuel Marulanda.
