I’m at Simon de Bolívar square in Caracas where Venezuelans are lining up for blocks to sign a declaration denouncing US intervention and imperialism. One man waiting just told me: “Please put in your picture that we’re not invisible and not being paid.”

Great job actually getting into Caracas ahead of Elliot Abrams’ death squads. Have you seen Rachel Maddow or Chris Hayes yet? 🙄

People have been waiting for hours at Simon de Bolívar plaza to sign a declaration opposing US intervention and aggression against Venezuela. Lines stretch for blocks. Maybe some other western media is here but I haven’t seen them.

The Venezuelan opposition and western corporate media want to frame a portrait of Maduro and the army against “the people.” That’s absolutely not what I saw today, where thousands were lining up for blocks all day to sign an open letter to Americans opposing US intervention.

While the US humanitarian “aid” propaganda show ramps up on the Colombian border, I visited a market in El Valle, Caracas where food provided by the government was sold well below market value. This is all taking place amidst an escalating US economic war & threats of invasion.

A similar open air market was held today in Parochia Macarao, a working class barrio on the edge of Caracas. Volunteers from the community sold food provided by the government at cut rate. I got to try the salt fish and meet Caracas Mayor !
