Trump's Military Threat to Venezuela - The World's Reaction

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr/ The Great Unrest in Wales  expresses its solidarity with the Venezuelan People and our Venezuelan Comrades in the Province of Lara against this serious threat against the independence and self determination of the Venezuelan People by Donald Trump and the American Oligarchy.

Any attack on Venezuela is an attack on all of us - and we will respond appropriately.

Our renewal of struggle for National and Social Liberation in Wales is inspired by the Venezuelan People.

Politicians, social movements and progressive governments from around the world have responded to Trump’s threat.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday claimed that Washington is exploring “many options regarding Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary.”

Speaking from Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump told reporters that his administration is considering taking action against the South American country in the wake of the National Constituent Assembly.

“We are all over the world and we have troops all over the world in places that are very, very far away,” Trump said.

“Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering. They're dying. We have many options for Venezuela including a possible military option, if necessary.”

Caracas has since responded to the threat and is preparing defense measures.

Politicians, social movements and progressive governments from around the world have also responded to Trump’s threat, expressing support for Venezuela’s sovereignty. Here are a few of their comments.
