Embassy Protectors Arrested in Violation of US and Internat’l Law

Earlier today the US Secret Service consumated one of the most aberrant and unlawful actions in US imperialist history. The long requested eviction (by Guaido’s “ambassador” Carlos Vecchio) of the remaining four peace activists that were guests of the only Venezuelan government recognized by the United Nations.

Alina Duarte, Telesur reporter/producer who was assaulted by Guaido supporters, received death threats, stalked to her home, was still there reporting this morning. She reports the charge against the Embassy Protectors is “interfering with protective measures”. Orwell rolls in his grave.
