Venezuelan Coup Supporters Block Food Access to Activists in Embassy

When Diplomats were forced to leave the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC, they handed their keys over to a collective and they have been occupying the building ever since.

CODEPINK is part of the occupying collective, they made the following statement, “CODEPINK is part of the Venezuela Embassy Protection Collective, a group of organizations and individuals residing and working in the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC at the invitation of the elected Venezuelan government. We are there to serve as an interim protectorate keeping the embassy safe from right-wing Guiado supporters, who have been harassing them and preventing the delivery of food and medicines into the building.”

Guaidó supporters have been blockading the embassy daily to cut off the collective’s access to food and supplies.
