An Open Letter to the People of the United States from President Nicolas Maduro

A Note to Global Research Readers

“Disinformation by Omission”: Not a single Western mainstream media has published, quoted or commented on President Nicolas Maduro’s Open Letter to the People of the United States (see Google search).

This letter is addressed to the People of America. Please forward this text far and wide, across the land.

If I know anything, it is about people, such as you, I am a man of the people. I was born and raised in a poor neighborhood of Caracas. I forged myself in the heat of popular and union struggles in a Venezuela submerged in exclusion and inequality.

I am not a tycoon, I am a worker of reason and heart, today I have the great privilege of presiding over the new Venezuela, rooted in a model of inclusive development and social equality, which was forged by Commander Hugo Chávez since 1998 inspired by the Bolivarian legacy …

    The USA has a horrific record of interventions in Latin American countries over the past hundred years or more, and it should keep out.

    However, Maduro is a dictator who created his own Constituent Assembly in 2017 with the intent of re-writing the Venezuelan Constitution so that he could remain in power forever.

    On 4 August 2017, Venezuela convened the new Constituent Assembly after a special election which was boycotted by opposition parties with foreign observers declaring the result to have been rigged. From that point forward, there have been two legislatures operating in parallel with the National Assembly forming the primary opposition to president Maduro, and with the Constituent Assembly being made up of his hand-picked, primary supporters.

    Then there are the massive economic (highest inflation rate in the world) and social problems (highest murder rate in the world) and also almost the highest corruption rate in the world.

    In the past couple of years 3 million people have walked out of Venezuela – to Colombia, Ecuador and Brasil. This movement of people has never happened in Latin America before.

    I am sure they would be happier living under a democracy.

    Bloody yanks can’t keep their greedy hands off other countries, especially if oil or drugs are involved.

    Globalresearch is an “anti-Western” website that can’t distinguish between serious analysis and discreditable junk — and so publishes both.

      Isn’t that called “unbiased”?
