Communist Party of Britain international secretary John Foster has issued the following statement today (May 5 2020)

The Communist Party of Britain condemns the attempted infiltration of armed mercenaries into Venezuelan territory on 4 May reportedly acting for the US-backed usurper Juan Guaido. The attack demonstrates the criminal irresponsibility of the US government in funding and supporting Guaido’s terrorist organisation and for maintaining its blockade of the sovereign state of Venezuela at the time of an unprecedented health emergency.

We call on the British government to disassociate itself from these actions by the US government to enable the free supply of all forms of humanitarian aid to Venezuela and to free all assets of the Venezuelan people currently impounded in Britain.
