PSUV denounces persecution against leaders who participated in the Sao Paulo Forum

The first vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, denounced on Monday that left wing leaders who participated in the 25th edition of the Sao Paulo Forum, held in Venezuela, are victims of persecutions by the international right wing, headed by the United States:
“Today, some of those who came to Venezuela, in their respective countries, are receiving threats”, said Cabello, adding that “they are receiving threats, waiting for them at the airport. For example in Belize, they are waiting for a comrade who came, they are waiting for her at the airport”.
Cabello said these actions are about an act of despair on the part of the United States and the international right wing.
In a broadcast by VTV, he said that this edition of the Sao Paulo Forum has served for international progressive movements to learn Venezuela’s example of how to transfer power to the people and govern by collective and non-individualistic interests.
He informed that in the framework of the forum, in August will be held a workers’ congress, in September a congress of the women’s movement, in October a congress of the original and communal peoples, and for the month of November the congresses of students, urban agriculture and people of African descent.
Likewise, he explained that the deputies of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) will be deployed throughout the country to present to the people the results and advances obtained in the Sao Paulo forum, as well as the achievements achieved in the first two years after having been Original Power installed.
