  Venezuela Needs Unity to Overcome U.S. Imperialism: Constituent
  Diosdado Cabello

August 24, 2017

The first Vice President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela 
(PSUV) and elected Constituent Assembly member Diosdado Cabello issued a 
call for unity of Venezuelan revolutionary forces against threats 
stemming from United States imperialism.

“Today imperialism is threatening us again. We are here, we do not 
attack anyone, but we are going to morally defend ourselves,” Cabello 
said during a broadcast on the Con el Mazo Dando program on the 
Venezuelan Television channel. “We are obligated to be united. There is 
no way to overcome such a powerful enemy if we do not have internal unity.”

On the tails of Trump announcing a possible “military option” for 
Venezuela, something that was unanimously rejected in Latin America, 
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence met with opposition leaders in Florida on 
Wednesday, announcing that the U.S. would be imposing more sanctions 
against the Bolivarian government which he called a "dictatorship."

Cabello said that the attacks stem from the fact that Venezuela has 
chosen not to follow the capitalist model, but has instead taken the 
path of sovereignty and working toward socialism, as laid out by the 
late former President Hugo Chavez.

The United States is “in essence against a great project opposing the 
capitalist model. This project was embodied by Hugo Chavez. It was he 
who opened the doors for us.”

The Socialist Party leader recalled the coup backed by the U.S. embassy 
in Caracas against the Bolivarian government in 2002 that attempted to 
remove President Chavez.

“Let's not confuse ourselves. The enemy is U.S. imperialism. We are all 
needed here,” Cabello said.

Cabello said that the participation of the Venezuelan people in the 
Constituent Assembly elections on July30th was the “biggest defeat for 
the U.S. government.”

“What happened on July 30th was a lesson for the world,” he said.
