Statement:


Congratulations to Venezuela on its Successful Constituent Assembly Elections!
No to US/Canada Threats and Interference!
No to Right-Wing Violence!
Yes to President Maduro, the Bolivarian Revolution
and the Venezuelan People!

Monday July 31, 2017
The Fire This Time Movement for Social Justice -Venezuela Solidarity Campaign congratulates the Venezuelan people for their overwhelmingly successful Constituent Assembly vote yesterday. The massive turnout of over 8 million people was a clear demonstration that they were not intimidated by a US-backed campaign of violence and threats, and that the heroic masses of Venezuela continue to mobilize together in defence of their dignity and self-determination. The successful Constituent Assembly vote was definitely a significant step forward for the Bolivarian Revolution led by democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro.

US & Canada Hands Off Venezuela!
All Out for the Constituent Assembly!

Sunday July 30, 2017
On May 1, 2017 the President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro called for the formation of a National Constituent Assembly in order to improve and broaden Venezuela’s Constitution and strengthen the Bolivarian revolutionary process. Over the last three months, in the face of increasing right-wing violence, the majority of people in Venezuela, in the millions have mobilized and organized as part of this profound democratic and constitutionally recognized process.

FIRE THIS TIME ACTIVISTS BRUTALIZED AND ASSAULTED BY TRANSIT POLICE AND RCMP!

STAND AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY!

STOP HARASSMENT AND ASSAULT OF POLITICAL ACTIVISTS!

OPPOSE SUPPRESSION OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION!


Campaign updates and videos of the assault available here:

www.youtube.com/firethistime
www.stoppoliceassault.com/

On August 31,2012, at Metrotown Skytrain Station near Vancouver, Canada, Transit police officers and the RCMP assaulted, handcuffed and removed three activists that were peacefully distributing the Fire This Time newspaper (FTT). Because FTT is a non-commercial, free social justice newspaper, the officers had no legal ground to stop the distribution. It is clear that the aim of the assault was to intimidate and harass social justice activists which is political targeting as FTT publishes many articles against war and in support of social justice struggles in Canada, from Indigenous rights to labour organizing. This was an attack on our fundamental civil and democratic rights which include freedom of expression and the right to organize and demonstrate without violence and intimidation. It is also a case of police brutality, which is a disturbing trend growing in Canada...
