VSC has produced a new in-depth briefing The Effects of the Economic Blockade of Venezuela, which explains the devastating impact of the illegal sanctions in detail. Please read and download it here, and also retweet our accompanying graphic here.
Additionally, we would recommend you read this report here by respected US economists Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs on how Venezuela is a case of economic sanctions being used as collective punishment, and also watch this video of Mark Weisbrot arguing that denying the impact of the sanctions “is like climate denial” here.
Trump and those who support his ‘regime change’ agenda are deliberately downplaying the human cost of sanctions – please share these materials to help us put out there what is really going on.
JOIN THE RALLY ON JULY 4 – #StopTrump in Latin America, No War, No Illegal Sanctions.
