CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PEOPLE AND THE BOLIVARIAN GOVERNMENT OF VENEZUELA
The Working Group on Latin America of the European Left Party (ELP) congratulates the Venezuelan people for having made effective their right to choose in tranquility and peace. By a large majority the people have backed the Bolivarian Revolution, reelecting President Nicolás Maduro.
It is evident that Bolivarian Venezuela is suffering a ruthless attack by USA imperialism, by the most reactionary right wing of the country supported by the most reactionary sectors in the Americas and in Europe. However, the Bolivarian Revolution demonstrates once again that, with mobilization, votes and democratic solidarity, those who try by all means to rob Venezuela of its sovereignty and its natural resources can be defeated.
Since the victory of Hugo Chávez, Venezuela is a sovereign nation and does not accept any external interference. The Venezuelan people fight for their rights and for those of the women and men of the world who are being used and abused every day by a cruel, inhuman and reactionary system such as capitalism.
The elections of May 20 are also a clear message to the world. After this new victory of the Bolivarian Revolution, the European Left Party once again demands the European Union and the media to lift sanctions, to stop lying and serving capitalist interests.
