Retrait de la reconnaissance accordée au comploteur et président auto-procalmé, Juan Guaido.
Le Parti communiste du Canada condamne la reconnaissance par le gouvernement canadien comme président «légitime» du Venezuela, Juan Guaido, chef de l’opposition et président autoproclamé du pays; nous condamnons aussi le soutien du gouvernement canadien apporté aux États-Unis qui appelle ouvertement l’armée vénézuélienne à renverser le gouvernement légitimement élu par le peuple de Nicolas Maduro.

The Communist Party of Canada condemns the Canadian government’s recognition of Juan Guaido, leader of Venezuela’s opposition and self-proclaimed President of Venezuela, as the ‘legitimate’ President of Venezuela; and we condemn the Canadian government’s endorsement of the US call for the Venezuelan military to overthrow the popularly elected and legitimate government of Nicolas Maduro.

The Women’s marches are also an important day to unite against the divisive attempts by fundamentalists and transphobic bigots to derail the struggle for a truly inclusive women’s movement.
