Press Release April 1, 2017


CONCERNED VENEZUELANS PROTEST OVER PARLIAMENT SHUT DOWN

Friday March 31st 2017, the day after the Venezuelan Parliament was shut by the Supreme Court.  A sad day for Venezuelan democracy!  The government is now completely controlled by President Nicolás Maduro, as the parliament was the last independent branch of the government. Now, there is no separation of powers: Venezuela is now an official dictatorship, confirmed.

The Parliament, elected by overwhelming majority in December 2015, has over 75% of opposition members who have been fiercely criticising Nicolas Maduro’s grip of power. Maduro has continually disregarded the Parliament’s power. As reported by the Economist: “Nicolás Maduro, had the Supreme Court rubber-stamp his budget rather than submitting it to the national assembly, in violation of the constitution. The court stripped the legislature of its power to name members of the electoral council.” Maduro also has managed to postpone all scheduled elections for posts ranging from state governors to labor union heads.

Maduro’s power grab reached its peak when the Supreme Court, following its loyalty to the president, issued a ruling that in effect seized power from the country's elected legislature. Now president Maduro holds all the power to enact laws, assign contracts, incur foreign debt and persecute fellow Venezuelans.

International mandataries have voiced their concerns on the situation: Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy warned on Twitter: “If the separation of powers breaks down, democracy breaks down". Germany attacked Venezuela's socialist President Nicolas Maduro, saying: “It is intolerable how President Maduro is making the population of his country hostages to his own power ambitions”. The Secretary General of the OAS denounced “the self-inflicted coup d’état perpetrated by the Venezuelan regime against the National Assembly, the last branch of government to be legitimized by the will of the people of Venezuela”. And The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs issued the following statement: “Canada is deeply concerned by the Venezuelan supreme court’s March 29 decision to suspend the legislative powers of the democratically elected national assembly, we call on the Government of Venezuela to allow the national assembly to carry out its constitutionally mandated duties and to respect the parliamentary immunity of its members".

Venezuelans in Vancouver will voice their concern and support democratic principles in Venezuela.

We invite you to cover our demonstration and support democracy in Venezuela.

Date and time:  April 4, 2017 at 12 noon
