Venezuela en la mira de Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea

La República Bolivariana de Venezuela enfrenta acciones violentas  alentadas y financiadas desde el exterior y una feroz campaña de prensa de los principales medios de Estados Unidos y de la Unión Europea destinadas a crear las condiciones para un golpe de estado contra el Gobierno constitucional de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela.

Los hechos  son similares a los ocurridos el 11 de abril del 2002,  cuando el Presidente del Gobierno Español, José María Aznar –cuyo país ostentaba la presidencia rotatoria de la Unión Europea—, en estrecha alianza con el gobierno de Estados Unidos, formó parte activa del golpe de estado y se apresuró a reconocer al espurio gobierno de Carmona El Breve, que fuera barrido por el pueblo venezolano.

A continuación los dejo con una Declaración de la Embajada de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela aquí en Bruselas sobre los hechos.

Seguidamente podrá leer unas Declaraciones del Secretario de Estado de EE.UU. John Kerry del pasado 15 de febrero y las de la Alta Representante de la Unión Europea, Catherine Ashton, donde en mi opinión puede apreciarse la  concertación de posiciones entre ambos socios transatlánticos, como sucede también en el caso de Ucrania.

Press Statement

Washington, DC

February 15, 2014

The United States is deeply concerned by rising tensions and violence surrounding this week’s protests in Venezuela. Our condolences go to the families of those killed as a result of this tragic violence.

We are particularly alarmed by reports that the Venezuelan government has arrested or detained scores of anti-government protestors and issued an arrest warrant for opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez. These actions have a chilling effect on citizens’ rights to express their grievances peacefully.

We join the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Secretary General of the Organization of American States, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, and others in condemning this senseless violence. We call on the Venezuelan government to provide the political space necessary for meaningful dialogue with the Venezuelan people and to release detained protestors. We urge all parties to work to restore calm and refrain from violence.

Freedoms of expression and peaceful assembly are universal human rights. They are essential to a functioning democracy, and the Venezuelan government has an obligation to protect these fundamental freedoms and the safety of its citizens.

descargaS T A T E M E N T by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton on unrest in Venezuela

The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the Commission, issued the following statement today:

“I am worried about the continuing unrest in Venezuela, saddened by the reported casualties and alarmed by the detention of students and political figures. I appeal to the relevant authorities to ensure that the accusations brought against them are swiftly, thoroughly and impartially investigated in accordance with due legal process.

I condemn intolerance and the use of violence by all sides. I stress the right to freedom of expression, association and assembly. It is incumbent on the public authorities to ensure that all citizens can exercise these rights freely.

It is essential that journalists and broadcasters are allowed to exercise their profession freely and that citizens and politicians can express their views in the media.

I call upon the government and the opposition to pursue a comprehensive dialogue aimed at meeting the legitimate concerns of the people of Venezuela.”
