Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • On September 22, 2017, the Government of Canada imposed new sanctions against Venezuela, Venezuelan officials, and other individuals under the Special Economic Measures Act in violation of the sovereignty of Venezuela;
  • Such sanctions impede dialogue and peace-building in Venezuela and in the region more generally;
  • These sanctions impede the normal operation of Venezuela’s duly constituted political processes including elections;
  • The Government of Canada has supported the U.S. government’s sanctions against Venezuela
  • The Government of Canada has met with, supported, and continues to echo the demands of Venezuela’s violent anti-government opposition;
  • The Government of Canada refuses to recognize the legitimacy of Venezuela’s democratically elected government and falsely refers to it as dictatorial; and
  • The government of Canada seeks to promote foreign intervention in the internal affairs of Venezuela.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to immediately lift all sanctions against Venezuela, Venezuelan officials, and other individuals, retract all statements in support of US sanctions against Venezuela, immediately cease its support for the efforts of the US and other right wing governments in the Organization of American States (OAS) that violate the sovereignty and self-determination of another member-state and immediately cease all intervention against Venezuela.
