"We note the growing concern across progressive movements and governments across Latin America that elements of the right wing within Venezuela have called again for the "ousting" of the elected President Nicolas Maduro - including overt calls on the military to oust the president - before the constitutional end of term.

The success of such an "ousting" would mean the implementation of hard-line neoliberalism, which could only further exacerbate the country's economic problems and overturn the advances in social programmes and labour rights of recent years.

These announcements from the right wing follow the decision of the US to again renew sanctions against Venezuela, which have been condemned by the Union of South American Nations. With Donald Trump attacking Venezuela during his election campaign, there is great concern that he may step up intervention aimed at 'regime change.'

We call for respect for Venezuela's national sovereignty and an end to such interventions."
