The Portuguese Communist Party reaffirm its solidarity with the Venezuelan workers and people and the actions of the Bolivarian forces in defense of sovereignty and peace, for the development, social justice and progress of Venezuela.
Denouncing and condemning the manoeuvres of interference and constant threats of external intervention against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, their legitimate and constitutional Government and its people, PCP also alerts towards the intensification of the destabilization and economic and financial blockade and the explicit threats of militar aggression by the US and other imperialist powers against this Latin American country.
PCP also denounces and condemns the arbitrary and discriminatory measures against Venezuela, in blatant violation of the principles of the United Nations Charter and international law, including the imposition of sanctions by the US and the European Union or its exclusion from the Summit of the Americas.
The attacks against the Bolivarian Revolution, the attempt to jeopardize the presidential elections of May 20th, the permanent media campaign of manipulation and disinformation aims to push back the advances and achievement of the democratic and popular process in Venezuela.
The interference and aggression against Venezuela and its people is part of a concerted, increasingly anti-democratic and repressive action by the US, by the big economic power and the most regressive forces on that subcontinent aimed at stopping the dynamics of progressive sovereign affirmation and the multilateral articulation and cooperation developed in Latin America and the Caribbean —such as ALBA-TCP, UNASUR and CELAC— and imposing the perpetuation of the policies of pillage and exploitation.
On the International Day of Action in Solidarity with Venezuela and the struggle of the Venezuelan people, PCP reiterates its solidarity with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, with the CPV, the USPV and other patriotic, progressive and revolutionary forces, in its struggle in defense of independence and national sovereignty and the rights of the Venezuelan people, including the right to decide their destiny freely and in Peace.
Demanding the end of interference, manoeuvres and threats against the Venezuelan people, PCP appeals to the solidarity in defense of Bolivarian Venezuela, for social progress, peace and cooperation among peoples.
