The World Federation of Trade Unions condemns the assassination attempt against Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro that took place in Caracas, Venezuela during his public speech at a military event.

The class oriented international trade union movement is on the side of the popular strata of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and, once again, clearly states that the only competent to determine the future of the country is its own people. The World Federation of Trade Unions, as the only trade union International that fights against imperialism and capitalist exploitation, will continue to show its active solidarity with the Venezuelan working class.

We call on the Venezuelan people to be vigilant in the face of events and to fight for the deepening of their social achievements, until the dawn of a new world, without the exploitation of man by man.
