An Open Letter to the Washington Office on Latin America about Its Stance on US Effort to Overthrow Venezuelan Government

Noam Chomsky, Greg Grandin, Sujatha Fernandes, Daniel Hellinger, et al.

The following open letter, signed by 124 academics from around the globe, is addressed to the Washington Office on Latin America and voices serious concerns over WOLA's support for various components of the Trump administration's policy towards Venezuela.

We write out of concern for the direction that WOLA has taken with regard to a matter of life and death, and possibly war and peace, in Latin America. This letter is an attempt to engage with WOLA about your support for various components of the Trump administration’s efforts to topple the government of Venezuela.

Please add to this list the countless millions of Americans, both young and old, who are sick and tired of Corporate Empire’s never ending blood lust for oil that doesn’t and never did belong to them…
We are not going to sit idly by and watch this regime turn Venezuela into another blood bath like Vietnam and so many other countries and regions of the world…

I am truly amazed at how helpless the whole of Central America and South America have been maintained by the US for centuries. A war would traumatize all these countries.
Threaten throwing out a president, and that is what a president gives to secure his position. Keep those polls a churning! Keep those articles for impeachment coming!
Rotten situation any way you look at it.
