CPA message of solidarity with the PCV

The Communist Party of Australia expresses its working-class solidarity with the Communist Party of Venezuela (Partido Comunista de Venezuela, PCV) and its members particularly those in the oil industry organised in class-oriented unions.

It was with concern that the CPA received the PCV statement about police repression and intimidation of trade unionists and members of the PCV.

The CPA has clearly expressed support for President Nicolas Maduro and the Bolivarian government. The CPA campaigns against the US economic war on the people of Venezuela and the sanctions that directly affect workers and people in general.

We stand firm against the regime change practices by the Trump Administration which includes the recognition of self-proclaimed president which has proven to be a puppet of the US government.

At the same time the Communist Party of Australia expresses its concerns for the reported repression and intimidation of the Oil workers and members of the PCV who were detained and reportedly tortured while in custody on 13th February 2020.

We call on the Bolivarian government to investigate those actions and if found guilty the perpetrators must be punished.

Trying to find a revolutionary way out to the crisis is a demand from the Communist Party of Venezuela towards a working-class solution in the interest of all Venezuelans.
