The Network of Intellectuals and Artists in Defense of Humanity, chapter Guatemala, today requested the Government of Jimmy Morales to respect the right to self-determination and sovereignty of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
For the members of the civilian organization, the role that the State of Guatemala is playing in the Organization of American States (OAS) is questionable, lending itself to the strategy of the continental right wing and the secretary general of that mechanism Luis Almagro Against the South American country.
They recalled that ‘Guatemala was co-convener of the extraordinary meeting promoted by Almagro, to invoke the OAS Democratic Charter against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, an initiative that failed politically.’
And that ‘it was again co-convened with other countries to illegally conduct the extraordinary session held on April 5, in which the internal procedure of the OAS was violated.’
The latter was an illegal session because it was carried out without the authorization of Bolivia and Haiti – who hold the presidency and vice-presidency, respectively – and with the representative of Honduras at the head, and issued an anti-Venezuelan declaration.
‘All this is part of a coup plot led by the continental right and supported by the United States,’ stated the members of the Network and recalled the role played by the OAS as an instrument of military intervention and subsequent overthrow of the legitimate government of Jacobo Arbenz 1954).
‘With what political and moral authority does the Guatemalan Government get involve in the internal affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, when it is permanently criticizing the actions of the international community in favor of human rights in the fight against impunity and corruption.
In turn, they stressed that Guatemala ‘lives a profound unprecedented political, institutional, economic and social crisis, and has enjoyed the enormous solidarity of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.’
According to this opinion, they rejected the declarations issued by the OAS against the South American country and demanded the destitution of its secretary general, as well as that the Morales administration refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of the Venezuelans and from being pressured.
