Emanuel Macron urging Europe to join Trump in sanctioning Venezuela in a effort that will worsen the humanitarian crisis

I have made a separate thread as this pertains to the global "left" and its alliance with Trump in overthrowing the Bolivarian revolution.
Last week U.S sanctions blocked 18 million boxes of food the government of Venezuela was trying to purchase.
Now Macron wants to join in with Trump and is urging Europe to also sanction Venezuela.
New sanctions will Further block the government of Venezuela from accessing food and medicine for the people.
Macron is offering to provide humanitarian aide to those that the sanctions he is proposing and that Trump has initiated are affecting.
Macron and Trump are trying to starve Venezuela in order for them to have no choice but to accept the conditions that will be placed on the humanitarian aide, this includes exchange for their oil reserves.
Macron also suppprts the opposition in Venezuela who's supporters have destroyed government food supply warehouses (over 40 tons) The opposition have also stopped international suppliers from selling food products to the government for it food subsidies program. instead directing the food to private enterprises in Venezuela where they can inflate its prices.
In order to get Venezuela to accept the humanitarian aide they will attempt to starve and kill them via sanctions by not allowing Venezuelas government to purchase food and medicine

US Sanctions Against Venezuela Blocked 18 Million Boxes of Food


Venezuela’s Vice President of the Constitutional Assembly, Aristobulo Isturiz, said U.S. sanctions are a part of an “asymmetrical war.”

The economic blockade imposed by the United States against Venezuela has prevented some 18 million boxes of food from the Local Supply and Production Committees, CLAP, from reaching the country, declared the Vice President of Venezuela’s National Constitutional Assembly, Aristobulo Isturiz.

The leader denounced U.S. economic sanctions on Venezuela, saying that they affect Venezuelan people — including the country’s most vulnerable sectors — the most, and not President Nicolas Maduro, as the U.S. government says it intends to do.

Isturiz explained that the latest round of sanctions against the Bolivarian nation blocked the payment of the boxes. It was only when countries allied with Venezuela intervened in the payment process, that the food was able to make its way in.

While Venezuela does have a food crisis that has resulted in mass food shortages, the blame is often pinned on the country’s socialist government. Government officials accuse right-wing opposition forces and their allies in the private sector and in international finance of intentionally sabotaging the economy.

Last year, over 750 opposition-controlled offshore companies linked to the Panama Papers scandal were accused of purposely redirecting Venezuelan imports of raw food materials from the government to the private sector. Many of these companies sell their products to private companies in Colombia, which resell them to Venezuelans living close to Colombia.

Venezuela Protesters Set 40 Tons of Subsidized Food on Fire

In one of many attacks on food warehouses and distribution during recent opposition-led violence, in June protesters attacked a state-owned storehouse, setting fire to the building and destroying food reserves that were kept there.

About 50 tons of food that would have been distributed through the Mercal subsidized food market and subsidized government programs were ravaged by the flames, affecting some 40,000 families.

The sanctions are pure sadism. They are an attack on the people of Venezuela.

Macron considers pushing European sanctions against Venezuela
https://www.google.com.au...-venezuela



French President Emmanuel Macron has said he may push for European sanctions against Venezuela after meeting leaders of the opposition to President Nicolas Maduro in Paris on Monday.

Macron expressed "total support" for the National Assembly, dissolved by Venezuela's top court after the controversial election of a constituent assembly, the parliament's president Julio Borges said after meeting the French leader at the Elysée Palace.

Borges said that the opposition had received "impressive" support from abroad in its battle with Maduro, whom he accused of preventing international aid from arriving in the crisis-hit country.

Macron "condemned the repressive measures taken against the opposition and renewed his support for the rule of law and a healthy democratic process in Venezuela", a presidential statement said.

"He added that, in the absence of a positive sign from the government in this respect, France was ready to start a European consideration of adopting measures targeting those responsible for this situation," it went on.

Borges and his deputy, Freddy Guevara, were to go on to Madrid to meet Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on Tuesday, to Berlin to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday and then to London to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May.

The government of Venezuela are looking at ways to improve the economy which has been affected due to the drop in oil prices which is traded in U.S dollars.
Venezuela has just decided to drop trading oil in U.S dollars and is moving over to other currencies to improve the economic situation in Venezuela



Is Venezuela About to Ditch the Dollar in Major Blow to US? Here’s Why It Matters


https://www.google.com.au...608378/amp

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday that Venezuela will be looking to “free” itself from the U.S. dollar next week, Reuters reports. According to the outlet, Maduro will look to use the weakest of two official foreign exchange regimes (essentially the way Venezuela will manage its currency in relation to other currencies and the foreign exchange market), along with a basket of currencies.

According to Reuters, Maduro was referring to Venezuela’s current official exchange rate, known as DICOM, in which the dollar can be exchanged for 3,345 bolivars. At the strongest official rate, one dollar buys only 10 bolivars, which may be one of the reasons why Maduro wants to opt for some of the weaker exchange rates.

“Venezuela is going to implement a new system of international payments and will create a basket of currencies to free us from the dollar,” Maduro said in a multi-hour address to a new legislative “superbody.” He reportedly did not provide details of this new proposal.
Maduro hinted that the South American country would look to using the yuan instead, among other currencies.

“If they pursue us with the dollar, we’ll use the Russian ruble, the yuan, yen, the Indian rupee, the euro,” Maduro also said.
Venezuela sits on the world’s largest oil reserves but has been undergoing a major crisis, with millions of people going hungry inside the country which has been plagued with rampant, increasing inflation. In that context, the recently established economic blockade by the Trump administration only adds to the suffering of ordinary Venezuelans rather than helping their plight.

According to Reuters, a thousand dollars’ worth of local currency obtained when Maduro came to power in 2013 is now be worth little over one dollar.

A theory advanced in William R. Clark’s book Petrodollar Warfare – and largely ignored by the mainstream media – essentially asserts that Washington-led interventions in the Middle East and beyond are fueled by the direct effect on the U.S. dollar that can result if oil-exporting countries opt to sell oil in alternative currencies. For example, in 2000, Iraq announced it would no longer use U.S. dollars to sell oil on the global market. It adopted the euro, instead.

By February 2003, the Guardian reported that Iraq had netted a “handsome profit” after making this policy change. Despite this, the U.S. invaded not long after and immediately switched the sale of oil back to the U.S. dollar.

In Libya, Muammar Gaddafi was punished for a similar proposal to create a unified African currency backed by gold, which would be used to buy and sell African oil. Though it sounds like a ludicrous reason to overthrow a sovereign government and plunge the country into a humanitarian crisis, Hillary Clinton’s leaked emails confirmed this was the main reason Gaddafi was overthrown. The French were especially concerned by Gaddafi’s proposal and, unsurprisingly, became one of the war’s main contributors. (It was a French Rafaele jet that struck Gaddafi’s motorcade, ultimately leading to his death).

Iran has been using alternative currencies like the yuan for some time now and shares a lucrative gas field with Qatar, which may ultimately be days away from doing the same. Both countries have been vilified on the international stage, particularly under the Trump administration.

He isn't. At least Chavez, like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, had charisma. The untimely death of Chavez threw former bus driver Nicolas Maduro into a role he really wasn't prepared for and now he's using force to stay in power because he doesn't know what else to do. The only reason he stays in power is because the army backs him. For the time being. I hope there will come a time when the soldiers will refuse to fire at their own people.

I am not reading into what you said but: Fidel Castro and Che Guevara were MONSTERS up there with Hitler and Stalin and Pol Pot....and the day they each died was a GOOD day. As to hugo's "untimely death" yeah it was.... about 59 years too LATE/

Not true.

http://www.truth-out.org/...ves-matter

"It is important to note that while the vitriolic right-wing government opposition is concentrated among the white and economically elite elements of the population, the barrios, shanty towns and rural areas that are home to the poor, Indigenous communities and the Afro-Venezuelans have not erupted into protest for the most part because they support the government. In order to understand the roots of the elite opposition's hate and racism toward Black and Indigenous government supporters, one has to understand the history of the presidency that preceded Maduro's -- that of Hugo Chavez."

Do dictatorships hold elections?
Like the sanctions blocking food and medicine, this will also not be reported by mainstream outlets, which we all know why.

Amid Low Turnout, Venezuelan Opposition Holds Regional Primaries.

Despite asserting that they live under a dictatorship, the opposition held regional primaries assisted by the National Electoral Council.
The Venezuelan opposition coalition held primaries Sunday to elect candidates for governors in 20 of the 23 states in the country to participate in regional elections slated for October.

With the assistance of the National Electoral Council, the Democratic Unity Roundtable, who has asserted that a dictatorship exists in the South America country, is now taking part in an electoral process with a direct, universal and secret vote, organized by the same institution that they have attacked in recent months, the CNE.

Democratic Action leader Henry Ramos Allup — who until August insisted that a new CNE board had to be installed in order for the opposition to participate in the next elections — declared that the right-wing coalition is obliged to appear in the regional elections to maintain the democratic image that it has projected internationally.

"The international community is supporting our electoral participation because that was one of the essential points we made, that an electoral calendar be set. Now that they have set the timetable ... what are we going to say to the international community, that we are not going to elections?"


Beginning in April, opposition forces led a campaign of destabilization in Venezuela in their efforts to overthrow the government of Nicolas Maduro, calling for foreign intervention and sanctions on the country. The violent protests and blockades led to more than 120 deaths and hundreds of injuries.

To that end, the opposition also said that it would not participate in any election unless Maduro stepped down even though his constitutionally-mandated term is not up until 2018.

Despite the fact that several voting centers were opened throughout Miranda state, voter attendance was low.

The lack of promotion and information about the process and the contradictions in the comments of some leaders influenced the turnout, which according to organizers, was 10 percent of the electoral roll.

Venezuelans apparently hate the government so much that the Opposition still couldn't get the voter turn out to over 10%

There is certainly frustration amongst the people of Venezuela about the current situation in the country. that doesn't mean that they prefer the opposition as international media would like you to think, evidently as the voter turn out indicates.
The opposition must be aware that through democratic process like elections that they will not be able to gain power. So they are seeking international intervention, sanctions and inciting violence amongst the small right wing extremists who support them.

Receipts below.

https://www.google.com.au...-democracy

Here is what Jimmy Carter said about Venezuela's "dictatorship" a few weeks ago: "As a matter of fact, of the 92 elections that we've monitored, I would say that the election process in Venezuela is the best in the world."

Carter won a Nobel prize for his work through the election-monitoring Carter Center, which has observed and certified past Venezuelan elections. But because Washington has sought for more than a decade to delegitimise Venezuela's government, his viewpoint is only rarely reported. His latest comments went unreported in almost all of the US media.

Your skepticism about the elections is mendacious as you know very well that Jimmy Carters organization that monitors elections is a highly reputable source to confirm that elections are not "shams".
This is about privatization of Venezuelas oil reserves so that Western elites can acquire it.
The government of Venezuela won't allow it as they are socialist. The opposition however will allow privatization, Hence the western medias bias towards the opposition.
