Robert-SerraThe Hands Off Venezuela campaign expresses its outrage at the assassination of Venezuelan member of the national assembly Robert Serra for the PSUV and his partner María Herrera. The way the assassination was carried out was particularly brutal. Robert Serra was found bound and gagged and had been stabbed over 50 times. The Minister of the Interior and Justice, Rodríguez Torres, said that according to early investigation results this had been an “intentional, well planned and meticulously executed homicide” and that the assassination was not a “chance event” but rather a “macabre assignment.”

Canadian Parliament passes resolution against Bolivarian government; NDP must support the workers and poor of Venezuela http://www.handsoffvenezuela.org/canadian_parliament_venezuela.htm http://www.handsoffvenezuela.org/canadian_parliament_venezuela.htm

The Canadian government has become the latest imperialist power to jump to the defence of the far-right protests in Venezuela.  Parliament has just passed a unanimous motion that places the responsibility for the current violence in the country on the shoulders of the Venezuelan government rather than the opposition gangs that initiated the unrest. Camilo Cahis (HOV Canada and Fightback) sets the record straight and exposes the position of the NDP MPs.
