WPF Executive Committee Statement on Venezuela

The World Public Forum “Dialogue of Civilizations” follows with growing alarm the unfolding events in Venezuela. The Forum condemns in the strongest possible terms any involvement of “el Norte” in efforts to topple the duly elected government there. We vividly remember the foreign-supported coup against the government of Salvador Allende in 1973, a coup followed by 17 years of military dictatorship resulting in a staggering number of executed and “disappeared” people. In light of the recent events in the Ukraine, we feel that one foreign-engineered “regime change” disaster is enough in 2014. We urge all participants to refrain from actions which seem to be pushing our world steadily closer to a new World War.
