Venezuela and Zimbabwe: Murder By Sanctions * As one reads the newspapers or watches TV one cannot but be aghast at the mechanizations by the US and the Western power like the EU and Britain who engage in terrorism, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The unfolding saga in Venezuela makes obvious the crime that is wrapped up in the not-so- noble rhetoric of democracy and humanitarianism. The US, Britain and the EU using NATO has long been committing crimes against peace through the mechanisms of sanctions to effect regime change and this throughout the world especially the developing nations so that it can rape and plunder its resources and impoverish its peoples. This is especially true with countries that want to be free of the stranglehold of the forces of imperialism and the new colonialism. If any countries dare to stand up to the US, Britain and the EU they are either bombed to smithereens like Iraq and Libya or the people get starved to death through sanctions. The two living examples that are happening right now are Zimbabwe and Venezuela and its happening on our watch. As Africans and Indigenous People we reject the crimes that are committed against both countries and reject the presence of the US army on African soil. Africa does not have a presence in Europe or the US and thus why should the US have a presence in Africa or anywhere else on the planet. Africa is not a satellite of the US or Britain or the EU but Africa is an independent Continent that has sovereign rights not a vassal continent of the supposed super powers. In this instance we say to our governments get rid of AFRICOM and make Africa what it is supposed to be: independent and powerful. Closer to home in Zimbabwe we see the same hidden hand at play and in both Zimbabwe and Venezuela the people are being punished by a slow death, and emotional turmoil and degradation and this in the name of British and American imperialism. The punishing of a people, because the government they chose, refuses to capitulate to the US and Britain, is nothing less than terrorism and a war crime. One
