We address our class, the international proletariat, and peoples of the world to condemn, smash, mark by fire and with deep class hatred reject the direct and shameless intervention of Yankee imperialism, single hegemonic superpower, world great counterrevolutionary gendarme and principal enemy of the peoples of the world, against the nation, against the people of Venezuela.
At this new direct aggression, Yankee imperialism applies a state coup to impose a puppet government in Venezuela. It is a plan of Yankee imperialism; it comes into play with the self-proclamation as temporary president by its puppet, the president of the suspended Legislative Assembly, Juan Guaidó, who was immediately acknowledged as the “legitimate” president of the country by the arch-reactionary and genocidal government of Trump-Pence and making an ultimatum to the operating government of Nicolás Maduro for him to hand over the temporary government; intimidating him, in case the imperialist rule is not followed, it will use all power and violence of the superpower establishing the capitulation of the current government of Maduro to favor the temporary government as “causas belium”. Which means, either capitulation of the oppressed country of the imperialist war of aggression, does not matter the form that the military intervention adopts.
This direct aggression of Yankee imperialism, headed by Trump-Pence, to change the government of Venezuela for a Yankee puppet one would imply the change of the semi-colonial situation of Venezuela into a colonial one. These imperialists, in the name of the struggle against “dictatorship” and for “democracy and freedom” intend to submit the Venezuelan people to colonial slavery. It constitutes the most shameless intimidation, interference, control and aggression by the United States against an oppressed nation of the Third World violating the national independence, the national sovereignty and dignity of the country and in the international juridical order that is an expression of its world hegemony – the ONU letter, or the OEA, etc.
Imperialism allows itself to act in a presumptive and shameless form against a formally independent country through its condition of single hegemonic superpower and self-appointed world gendarme; because it is the principal imperialism that imposes its semi-colonial rule over Venezuela as well as the other countries of Latin America, principal base of its world domination (backyard), a situation that was deepened during the years of the current regime of Chávez-Maduro; who, as representatives of the big bureaucratic bourgeoisie of its country, despite their discourse and secondary contradictions with the successive governments that USA has increasingly submitted the country to the economic rule of Yankee imperialism through its principal and practically only exportation product, oil, while associating to its direct foreign investment and increasing its financial dependence from Wall Street. However they further opened the country to the penetration of other imperialist powers, did not break with Yankee imperialism, then trying to ride two horses. Increasing the imperialist contend for the exploitation of the country and turning Venezuela an increasingly sharpened inter-imperialist contend arena
Now, more than ever, the New Democracy revolution that put an end to imperialism domination, to semifeudality and bureaucratic capitalism, which means the three mountains that oppresses the people, demands for its concretion through the People’s War led by the proletariat through its militarized marxist-leninist-maoist Communist Party.
The current regime in Venezuela was established in February 2, 1999, while riding on the struggle of the masses against the so called privatization and the “packages” that the previous governments of the comprador faction attempted to impose. The fury of the masses that was expressed in “Caracazo” (1989) has momentarily obstructed the desires of the comprador, principally linked to USA, to completely take everything the landlord-bureaucratic state had accumulated for decades.
Now, with the deepening of the crisis of the country, the Yankee imperialists and the lackeys at their service, the moment has come to further completely appropriate the great riches of the country through the imposition of a puppet government: aiming the oil of Venezuela in the first place, the biggest reserve of the world, and to get advantage of the excellent conditions that this country offers for the exploitation by the imperialist finance capital. By establishing its colonial slavery through a puppet government, the Yankee imperialists would not share the economical monopoly over Venezuela with many other imperialists (semicolonial character), but would establish its exclusive imperialist economic monopoly over the country (colonial character).
Just how it has always been, it is the people who has to defend the country. The Venezuelan people has to broadly mobilize in order to prevent the danger of capitulation that is expressed by the representatives of Maduro government as the tendency to commitment, which has been openly or hiddenly expressed by those who fear the power of imperialism and consequently propose the inevitable subjugation of the nation, because they do not trust in the power of the people and the solidarity of the peoples of the world.
For the revolutionaries, imperialism is a colossus with clay feet, paper tiger and the guns are not decisive, but men, the masses. Other ones put their hopes to overcome the threat of colonial subjugation of the country, principally in the foreign help from another superpower, Russia (the skinny dog) or the Chinese social-imperialists, through economic help, weapons, etc. or through diplomatic mediation. The last one is linked to the doubt these people have regarding if the enemy will attack: some consider it a probability, other say there is no chance.
On their part, the Yankee imperialists, through their representatives, have declared that the politics of the USA regarding Venezuela is established. Whoever imagine that it is possible a deal with USA that do not imply the capitulation of the government of the country and the handing over of independence and sovereign of Venezuela, only live illusion. The national security advisor of Trump, Bolton, let an official document where is demonstrated that they are mobilizing for direct military aggression be shown: “deploy 5.000 troops to Colombia”. Furthermore, just like in the wars of the Middle East, the imperialist powers act in collusion and contend with the Yankees to drive Maduro into capitulation. The German government has demanded the immediate venue of “free and fair” elections and has indicated that is willing to acknowledge Guaidó temporarily as the leader of the puppet state as long as those primary elections are summoned. The same with England, France, Spain, etc.
It corresponds to the government of Venezuela to reject the capitulation and let all commitment policy aside, the political situation entered the stage of preparation for the national resistance against the imperialist aggression, they have to assume the challenge and mobilize and broadly arm the people, as well as the armed forces in order to safeguard the national independence, the national sovereign and the territorial integrity to dedicate them in a hard national resistance war against the foreign aggression.
Maduro government, demonstrating political myopia, took long time to recognize that they were facing a state coup that was applied by imperialism through its lackeys, considering central the main responsibility in the “opposition” as it was an internal affair, which means, in the functionaries and not the employer; facing the action of Trump government to impose the puppet government, acknowledging Guairó as the “temporary president”, they announced the break with diplomatic relations with USA, etc, which they clarified it did not mean a break with the USA but only with its government; they did not dispose of the mobilization of all the forces of the nation to face imperialism aggression as it should have been done with the military mobilization of their forces and the masses; neither immediately applying the punishment measures against the lackeys that have carried out all sort of crimes against the Venezuelan people to serve Yankee imperialism.
Despite the change of the internal and external situation that are determined by the direct imperialist aggression, they intend to keep maneuvering without the energy, decision and wholeness, speaking of “dialogue”, of “peace”. In similar situations, despite having the same class limitations than Maduro, others have dared and elected the path of resistance.
It corresponds to the proletariat and the people to put an end in all the talks that impedes a more forceful rejection to the imperialist ultimatum and the adequate preparation for the resistance, to oppose the military aggression to the invincible Resistance War against Yankee imperialism.
The proletariat and the people from Venezuela, combative as always, is uprising with a great patriotic feeling and deep hatred to imperialism and all its lackeys in the country and abroad with which demands the government of Maduro to reject the capitulation, that they fulfill their duty and abandon any hope that centering on dialogue with the lackeys or diplomatic treaties with the imperialists would make them abandon their ongoing plan.
It corresponds to the proletariat of Venezuela, the most advanced within them, the Maoists, to uphold the slogan of forging a broad anti-imperialist national united single front; to merge with the workers, peasants, petty bourgeois, national bourgeois and members of all other classes that are willing to face the imperialist aggressor and its lackeys excepting a handful of traitors, it corresponds to actively impulse the general taking up of arms by the people in the countryside and the city to prepare for a broad war of resistance, as armed struggle, striving to lead it and struggle to reconstitute their Communist Party along the course, as a militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Party, to transform the armed struggle of resistance into People’s War of national liberation. It corresponds to the maoists to prepare the application of a broad guerrilla warfare that takes the countryside as principal and the cities as necessary complement.
It corresponds to unite to all of those who does not want to be slaves of the United States, all those who are for conquering true independence, national sovereign and dignity of the country, all those who refuse to submit to intimidations, interference, control and aggression from the Yankee imperialists. With all those, it corresponds to unite and mobilize them while opposing the calls for conciliation, peace or privileging negotiations before resolutely acting to smash the Yankee imperialism aggression that started to develop under the form of state coup at the moment.
As representatives of the proletariat and of its blooming vanguard, it corresponds to the Maoists, from the principle of the independence and self-determination, to apply unity and struggle with other forces that started to form the people in the current political situation, where the contradiction nation-imperialism is becoming principal. It is necessary to demand to meticulously proceed to reform the system that is enforced in the army and the political system by widening democracy, develop the independent mass movement, put in motion the education for the national defense, repress the lackeys and other collaborationists, develop war industry and improve the life conditions of the people.
It is presented as utmost importance to raise the resistance program, which is of protracted nature in the current conditions. The resistance war of the people must point out into building a true Revolutionary Power (the New Power) and not the falsification of socialism of the 21th century, which has frustrated the people so much, but if the Power of a New Democracy on each part of the resistance, until expelling the invading enemy and smash all their worms and lackeys, for their establishing on all countries.
The peoples of Latin America, in order to safeguard the national independence and national sovereign, have the order to carry out the struggle “blow by blow” against the aggressive and genocidal Yankee imperialism, principal enemy of the peoples of the world.
The direct intervention of Yankee imperialism has begun with a state coup followed by a whole deployment and siege of forces to make Maduro government capitulate and subjugate the nation, it will not be stopped there if the objectives are not achieved, this increases on all fields until we reach their objectives and this is why it awakes and will awake a new wave against Yankee imperialism among the peoples of Latin America and the world.
It corresponds to the signing Parties and Organizations to assume the role of giving organizational expression to this new anti-imperialist wave, combating imperialism and it servants and lackeys on each country. We need to develop a broad and energetic world campaign to support the Venezuelan people against the Yankee imperialist aggression.
You, heroic Venezuelan people, there is no place for doubts, you are not alone on your struggle. The proletariat and oppressed peoples of the world are together to the people of Venezuela. You have the support of the proletariat of United States and Canada, from the proletariat of the imperialist countries of Europe and Asia, and from all peoples of Latin America, Asia, Africa, to support the peoples of the whle world.
Facing the direct aggression of Yankee imperialism to Venezuela and the peoples of South America, it is up to our peoples to raise in revolution and face the imperialist war of aggression with more People’s War.
Venezuela and all Latin America will be the tombstone of the Yankee imperialist hordes!
Venezuelan people, renounce illusions and prepare for resistance!
Imperialism and all reactionaries are paper tigers!
The struggle of the peoples of the world against Yankee imperialism will win!
