March 5, 2021 marks the 8th anniversary of the passing of Hugo Chavez, the leader of the Bolivarian revolution and President of Venezuela until he passed in 2013. His legacy continues to live on in the struggle of the people of Venezuela in defense of their independence and sovereignty. Every day, the people of Venezuela stand up to a brutal U.S.-led economic and financial blockade which is supported by Canada and the European Union. This has made access to food, medicines, and basic goods increasingly difficult, especially during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
As people living in the U.S. and Canada, we have the responsibility to stand with the people of Venezuela against U.S. and Canada sanctions, war and threats against Venezuela.
