jcvThe National Executive Commission of the Central Council of the Communist Youth of Venezuela (JCV) informs the public that on December 27th, in the afternoon, our comrade Ali Jimenez – member of the National Direction of the JCV and well respected Communist militant – was granted his freedom.

Jimenez had been arrested the past December 21st by the security forces in the Las Palmas Sector in the city of San Juan de los Morros in Guarico State together with eight other citizens from the community, who were exercising their right to protest against inefficiency of the mechanisms of food distribution.

His freeing is the result of national and intemational social pressure exercised in favour of our unfairly imprisoned comrades. We would like to thank all solidarity received by the Communist Youth groups and revolutionary youth movements across the world, as well as the organisations and movements which in Venezuela have manifested their strong backing.

We ratify our position of rejecting all type of attempts to criminalize and illegalize the fair popular protests.
