NEHAWU offers its support to the Bolivarian revolution

25 February 2015

NEHAWU is deeply disturbed and harshly condemn, the brazen attempts by the imperialist US Government and its collaborators ,to undermine and destabilise the government of Venezuela. Over the last few weeks, the people’s government of Venezuela discovered and dismantled a U S inspired coup d’état. The U S government has been conspiring with some Venezuelan aviation officials to provoke a violent uprising, like they did in Ukraine. We offer solidarity to President Nicholas Maduro, and salute the young officers; the working class youth, and security organs, who managed to stop the planned putsch attack in its tracks.
