On April 19, World Peace Council members and friends in all countries mobilized a Global Day of Action in Solidarity with the People of Venezuela. This action was taken in response to the Executive Order of US President Obama, which escalated imperialist provocation against Venezuela by declaring it to be a threat to US security.

As part of this global action, the Canadian Peace Congress launched a petition campaign aimed at the Canadian government’s aggressive policies toward Venezuela. The Congress is urging all of its members and friends to collect signatures in their area. Copies of the petition are available in English and French, and can be downloaded below and are also available from the Peace Congress office: 125 Brandon Avenue, Toronto, ON M6H 2E2.

Please download the petition and ask your friends and contacts to sign it!
