The Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) Peace Alliance, based in Augusta, Georgia, has issued the following statement regarding Venezuela:
The Central Savannah River Area Peace Alliance rejects United States intervention in Venezuela and condemns the 20 year long history of US intervention there under 4 successive US Presidents. It calls on the government of the United States to lift economic sanctions against Venezuela, cease aid to opposition groups, rescind its recognition of Juan Guaidó and comply with the Venezuelan government’s request to withdraw the U.S. diplomatic personnel.
Recognizing that there is considerable political turmoil in Venezuela, the CSRA Peace Alliance doesn’t take a position regarding the internal conflicts there.
