This event is part of an International Actions On the Weekend of February 23
Juan Guaido is promising that U.S. intervention through “humanitarian aid” will arrive in Venezuela by February 23rd. This makes our global response on that day even more important. It’s time to show our solidarity with a sovereign and progressive Venezuela. We must defend the revolution before U.S. soldiers set one foot on Venezuelan soil. Over of 40 cities across the world, from the U.S. to Bangladesh, Canada to Malta, India to Russia, and many others are planning actions. Find the full list of what’s already being planned below.
If you’re in a city where nothing has been planned yet, but you still want to show solidarity - don’t worry! We can help.
Every action held during the weekend of February 23 - no matter the size or scale - will have an impact.
Consider a smaller-scale action to raise awareness:
  • Link up with a few like-minded allies to print our fact sheets on Venezuela and pass them out in public places, such as a mall or public transit station
  • Consider a banner-drop, a picket, or holding signs and distributing fact sheets near a busy intersection or overpass. Get slogans or pre-made placards from our resource page
  • Wear red with your friends and take a photo while holding pro-Venezuela messages and tag them on social media as #HandsOffVenezuela or #23feb
  • Picket your local gas station with messages that convey: NOT ANOTHER WAR FOR OIL!
  • Screen Venezuela: La lucha sigue, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, or other films that tell the truth about the Bolivarian Revolution at a public space or in your home. Invite like-minded activists to link up and begin to plan the next day of action in support of Venezuela.
Whatever activity you organize, make sure to post pictures to social media with #HandsOffVenezuela and #23feb, and send them in to info@nowaronvenezuela.org
