Statement on the Assassination Attempt on President Nicholas Maduro
The New Afrikan People’s Organization and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement vehemently condemn the heinous attempt by counter-revolutionary forces to assassinate Nicholas Maduro, the popularly elected President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. This cowardly action is the result of the Trump Administration and neo-liberal imperialism to subvert peaceful means to resolve political conflict in Venezuela. By refusing to support free, fair, and internationally monitored elections in Venezuela, the rulers of the US imperialist state and their allies have selected destabilization and regime change of a democratically elected government through military and economic warfare. This is consistent with the Monroe Doctrine policy of the US imperialist state with the Americas, particularly in the Caribbean, South and Central America. We call upon all friends of democracy and self-determination to vocally condemn the August 4 assassination attempt on President Maduro and all efforts to subvert the revolutionary process in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
