Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution

Last Sunday morning in Australia the news came through that there had been a failed attempt against the life of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro while he was addressing a military parade to commemorate the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

On Saturday August 4 during his address to the military parade on Bolivar’s Avenue in Caracas, Venezuela, a number of drone attacks injured at least seven military personnel. The intended target was the democratically elected President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro.

We condemn this terrorist attack against President Maduro and all right-wing regime change activities. The internal and external perpetrators of these acts must be brought to justice.

President Maduro and his government, recently re-elected by a majority vote, are in the process of implementing policies for the economic recovery of the country. This is against a backdrop of the brutal economic blockade led by the US that prevents the purchase of basic food and medicines.

Scarcities are affecting workers and the poor in general but this did not stop them from endorsing the path for peace the Maduro government is on. The government must now find a way to fight an economic and political war to deepen the Bolivarian Revolution and move it forward.

The Communist Party of Australia condemns these attacks and expresses its solidarity with President Nicolas Maduro, his family and the Bolivarian people who fight in defence of their revolution.
