The Socialist Party, Zambia has condemned the on-going coup attempt against the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela.
In a statement availed to thedaybreaknews.com the party’s Politburo says having failed over the years to kill the leadership and destroy the gains of the Bolivarian revolution, the United States was now desperately turning to rogues in the army to do their dirty job.
It stated that as it was expected that the greatest majority of the troops and all commanders are loyal to the people, the Constitution and their homeland and Commandante Nicholas Maduro remained the undisputed constitutional President of Venezuela.
“It is grotesque that in the 21st Century a country still aims at enslaving other nations in order to plunder their wealth. The immense oil resources of Venezuela belong to the masses in that country. The United States and European imperialist powers plus their representatives in Venezuela have plundered that country for centuries,” reads part of the statement.
“The Bolivarian Revolution reversed that plunder and redistributed the wealth to its people. This is against the logic of capitalist plunder. This is the reason why today a coup is underway – to deny the Venezuelan masses their regained sovereignty and dignity”.
The party said the coup must be condemned in the strongest sense as it was highly destructive as it promotes violence and undemocratic values.
“All of the current United States policy toward Venezuela, including this attempted coup, are a direct and unceremonious interference in its internal affairs. It is hard to imagine a more monstrous example of interference in the internal affairs of another country,” reads the statement.
The revolutionary party charged that the aggression against Venezuela was not new as they did it against Hugo Chavez in 2002.
“They did it to Kwame Nkrumah in Ghana, Patrice Lumumba in Congo, Salvador Allende in Chile and many others in Latin America and Africa. Our total support goes to the Bolivarian Revolution, the people of Venezuela and Commandante Nicholas Maduro,” reads the statement.
