Over 110 Nations Meet to Discuss Ramifications of Obama's Declaration Against Venezuela | South America Just Stood Up: Can I get a big "HELL NO!"

No coincidence that D from Removing the Shackles has picked up on this fight between North and South America. We also recently shared some related posts,
Venezuela Officially Declares Bush And Cheney Terrorists, Bans Them From Country and Obama Declares Venezuela a National Security Threat.

Well well well..... Let's see if the American Media report on THIS Major Piece of Breaking News.
"Secretary-General of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) Ernesto Samper said this week that the body rejects “any attempt at internal or external interference that attempts to disrupt the democratic process in Venezuela.” The 12-nation bloc has agreed to hold a high-level meeting on March 14 in Quito, Ecuador, to discuss how to go about responding the new measures. The ad hoc meeting was announced urgently by Correa shortly after Obama’s remarks on how Venezuela is a threat to the US."
This, my friends, is the next major salvo in "Game Over" for the US Cabals stranglehold on the worlds proverbial testicles. Will the Main Stream Media publish it? Will they put some sort of desperate spin on it to try and make it look like mean ol' South America is ganging up on poor lil' USA?

Another salvo that went unnoticed by just about everyone, was a Statement made by the Non-Aligned Nations Movement on Feb 2, 2015:

Statement by the Non-Aligned Nations Movement: 
Communiqué of the Coordinating Bureau of the Non-Aligned Countries Movement to protest the latest decision of the Government of the United States, dated February 2, 2015, to expand unilateral coercive measures against Venezuela. 
In case you're wondering just how many Nations are part of the Non-Aligned Nations movement, I have posted further information after the next two articles. A quick glance should be all it takes to let you know that the vast majority of the planet are now AGAINST the US.

‘Undemocratic, interventionist’: Bolivia lashes out at Obama for Venezuela sanctions
Published time: March 13, 2015 10:01

Bolivia’s Foreign Ministry has joined a chorus of condemnation over US sanctions on Venezuela. A statement called on the US to “abandon its interventionist practices,” shortly after the rest of Latin America bonded in defense of Caracas.

Setting off the Latin outcry was US President Barack Obama’s decision to label Venezuela a ‘national security threat’ in early March, something President Nicolas Maduro countered by saying that Obama had taken it upon himself to “defeat” and“control” the country.

La Paz is striking back at Washington in defense of Caracas, after Bolivian President Evo Morales earlier this week signaled his support for Maduro. In a Thursday document the Foreign Ministry expressed its “regret” at Obama’s stance, saying“Bolivia rejects these interventionist actions of the US government to violate the sovereignty and self-determination of the Venezuelan people. These undemocratic actions of President Barack Obama threaten the peace and security of all countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Maduro: US trying to ‘defeat’ Venezuela govt with sanctions, we’ll fight back

Bolivia reiterates its full support for the legitimate government of brother Nicolas Maduro, a president democratically elected by his people, and pledge our solidarity to the Venezuelan people in this unfair and difficult time in which democracy is again trying to be sacrificed to serve foreign interests,” the document also read. 

Some of the loudest criticism in Latin America came from Cuba, which questioned Obama’s decision-making wisdom. Calling the president’s actions “arbitrary and aggressive,” its Foreign Ministry also issued a statement. 

“How is Venezuela a threat to the United States? Thousands of kilometers away, without strategic weapons and without the resources … to conspire against the US constitutional order; the [White House] declaration has little credibility,” Cuban newspaper Granma cited the document as saying.
Similar outrage was heard from Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, who took to Facebook to voice his objections, calling the US sanctions “a bad joke, which reminds us of the darkest hour of our America, when we received invasions and dictatorships imposed by imperialism.”

Offering its “full support” to Maduro, Correa reiterated that such actions will not stand with Latin America “in the 21st century.” 

Meanwhile, Secretary-General of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) Ernesto Samper said this week that the body rejects “any attempt at internal or external interference that attempts to disrupt the democratic process in Venezuela.” 

The 12-nation bloc has agreed to hold a high-level meeting on March 14 in Quito, Ecuador, to discuss how to go about responding the new measures. The ad hoc meeting was announced urgently by Correa shortly after Obama’s remarks on how Venezuela is a threat to the US. Like other Latin-American partners, Correa sees this as a move to isolate Caracas and finish the job that the opposition could not. 




The nations are also part of the anti-imperialist ALBA (Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of Our America) group of Latin American and Caribbean nations, which earlier said that the move by Obama “constitutes an unprecedented aggression against that country and thus our region.


Maduro accuses Joe Biden of ‘bloody coup’ in Venezuela


“This aggression violates every principle of international law which governs relationships between states, treating every state as equal and sovereign.”

Washington and Caracas have been at odds since Venezuela's iconic former leader Hugo Chavez came to power in 2000. The two had not had full diplomatic representation since 2008.

The country had recently grappled with heavy unrest, which was quelled. Later in February the president announced victory over the alleged US-sponsored coup, which he says was masterminded by Vice-President Joe Biden himself – the first time an accusation of such gravity was made to a crowd of thousands and on national television.

UNASUR Extraordinary Meeting on US Aggression Toward Venezuela



The foreign ministers of the South American bloc will analyze Obama’s internationally condemned executive action.An extraordinary meeting between the Union of South American Nations’ foreign ministers will meet this Saturday in Ecuador to analyze President Barack Obama's executive actions, which amount to aggressions and threats against Venezuela

Ecuador's Foreign Ministry released a statement Thursday announcing the meeting, which will take place at UNASUR's headquarters just north of Quito at 2.00 p.m. local time, when the officials will also be briefed on report by a special foreign affairs commission, which visited Caracas March 6. 

“This meeting will take place instead of the one that was planned for the same day in Montevideo, Uruguay,” the foreign ministry said. 

“During the extraordinary meeting, the report produced by the reduced Commission of the bloc's Foreign Ministers and the Secretary-General of UNASUR Ernesto Samper during their visit to Caracas,” the ministry added. 

The officials will discuss Obama’s decision to declare a national emergency claiming that Venezuela poses a threat to its country's security.

...On Wednesday, Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa said the member-states of the UNASUR would discuss U.S. aggressions against Venezuelan affairs, describing them as “gross, illegal, shameless, outrageous, and unjustified act of interference.” 

The head of UNASUR, Ernesto Samper, has already made clear that the bloc stands behind the democratically-elected government of Nicolas Maduro.

"There is no possibility that UNASUR will validate any attempt to disrupt the democratic process in any country in the region," said Samper. 

During a meeting in Quito, Ecuador, which included representatives from other regional bodies including Mercosur, ALBA, Pacific Alliance, the Andean Community, and the Amazon Treaty Cooperation Agreement, Samper added that the sanctions against Venezuela, and the timing of the action, were not good signs.

THE NON-ALIGNED NATIONS MOVEMENT:

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is a group of states which are not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. As of 2012, the movement has 120 members and 17 observer countries.[1]

...In a speech given during the Havana Declaration of 1979, Fidel Castro said the purpose of the organization is to ensure "the national independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of non-aligned countries" in their "struggle against imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, and all forms of foreign aggression, occupation, domination, interference or hegemony as well as against great power and bloc politics".[4] The countries of the Non-Aligned Movement represent nearly two-thirds of the United Nations's members and contain 55% of the world population. 

Membership is particularly concentrated in countries considered to be developing or part of the Third World.[5]
