Hands Off Venezuela! Resources

The Young Ecosocialists decry the ongoing coup in Venezuela being orchestrated by the United States government and its allies.  This attack on Venezuela and it's people is an affront to democracy and a blatant act of imperialism and white supremacist foreign policy.

In order to better inform our members on the issue, we have compiled a list of resources that we consider to have important insight on this crisis.

Two Years Since 835

The Youth Caucus recognizes the importance of Proposal 835 passed in 2016 to amend the GPUS Platform, which definitively laid out the party's opposition to capitalism. 

It has been two years since the Youth Caucus SC put out its unanimous endorsement of the proposal, which was authored by one of its members. That statement asked Young Greens across the country to lobby their National Committee delegates. We are proud that this endorsement and call to action helped spark the momentum which ultimately helped 835 pass the National Committee with over 70% support.

You can find the original statement re-posted below.
