A group of social organizations from the United States (USA) and Latin America expressed their solidarity with President Nicolás Maduro and the Venezuelan electoral process through a statement from the correspondent for the Latin American Summary in Cuba.

The statement stresses that the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is the country that has held the largest number of democratic elections in all Latin America and the Caribbean, whose transparency has not been questioned.

He also denounces the U.S. administration for trying to delegitimize the electoral process and impose candidates representing the interests of the United States, with the aim of seizing Venezuela and its vast hydrocarbon resources.

In addition, he adds that Washington does not conform to the economic blockade, the severe economic sanctions applied against Venezuela, the blockade of its accounts in third countries, the blatant theft of its gold and the constant media aggression.

“Defying all international conventions on respect for the sovereign decisions of States, they seek to impose a president to his own measure and for his own benefit, in order to seize Venezuela and its riches, to annihilate the remarkable social advances of the people, to hinder their leadership in the region and in the world, their foreign policy based on respect, multilateralism, solidarity and peace, and to turn it back into one of their colonies,” he added.

In the statement, they called for a denunciation of the assassination attempt against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, on March 25, perpetrated by hitmen linked to the fascist organization “Vente Venezuela,” which has never requested to be registered as a party. From 2023 to the present day, seven plots have been dismantled whose objectives were to attack military installations and attack government leaders.

In February, the Venezuelan Prosecutor’s Office announced the arrest of 15 people related to the “Brazy White Bradal” plan, which sought to assassinate President Maduro and other senior leaders of his government, with the aim of generating chaos and shock in the country.

“We call on social movements, political and cultural organizations to give our full support to the Venezuelan electoral process, based on the established agreements that guarantee the normal conduct of the presidential elections on July 28,” the statement adds.

The National Electoral Council (CNE) has reported that 37 political organizations and 13 presidential candidates have registered, in compliance with the principles of the Bolivarian Constitution and the laws guaranteeing peace and security of the Venezuelan people.

“We send our solidarity to President Nicolás Maduro Moros, reject attempts to massacre and alter the internal order, and we offer our strong support for the electoral process in Bolivarian Venezuela,” concludes the statement.

The writer and president of the House of the Americas, Abel Prieto, joined the statement through a post on his X account: The House of the Americas joins this statement. All our solidarity with President Nicolas Maduro and Bolivarian Venezuela. Hands outside Venezuela. Enough campaigns and U.S. interference.

The declaration was signed by the Human Defense Network (RedH) Cuban Chapter, the Regional Office of the Americas and the Caribbean of the International Democratic Federation of Women (FDIM), the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Center. (CMLK), the Martian Youth Movement (MJM), the National Centre for Sex Education (Cenesex), the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity for Peoples (CI) and the House of the Americas.
