.@codepink is a harmless joke of an organization. But this LARPing at the Venezuelan embassy is mildly sinister. Millions of Venezuelans struggle for free and fair elections. And Code Pink defends Venezuela's tyrant. Call this stunt what it is, an act of moral illiteracy.— Eli Lake (@EliLake) May 3, 2019
Too funny...all these trolls supporting the Maduro regime are simply outraged that I would suggest handling @codepink usurping the #Venezuela embassy in Washington in the same manner as Maduro treats his own people...no water, no electricity, feeding them CRAP I mean CLAP...— Eric Farnsworth (@ericfarns) May 2, 2019
CodePink national co-director Ariel Gold spoke with Democracy Now! earlier this week about why she and other activists are occupying the Venezuelan embassy in D.C. "We call ourselves the Embassy Protection Collective," she said. https://t.co/tEiNGCJ8eY pic.twitter.com/RMQs2PlDu4— Democracy Now! (@democracynow) May 2, 2019
They all stood to sing the national anthem. Several here began to cry.— Marissa J. Lang (@Marissa_Jae) May 1, 2019
The embassy has become a proxy fight for pro- and anti-Maduro groups, but the factions out here are split along ethnic lines. The pro-Maduro group inside are Americans. Opposition supporters are Venezuelan. pic.twitter.com/zxSAeceIZB
These Americans claim they are working to counter American imperialism, but in fact they are unlawfully occupying a foreign embassy without its government's permission.@TomRTweets explains: https://t.co/cL43ZgfeT4— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) May 3, 2019
The U.S. must remain strong in its support of the Venezuelan people and the legitimate government led by interim president @jguaido.— Rep. Scott Tipton (@RepTipton) May 3, 2019
I've asked @SecPompeo to remove the illegal occupants from the radical group @codepink from the Venezuelan embassy in Washington. pic.twitter.com/oNh9OOfRgY
How OAS imposter @tarrebriceno was welcomed at the Maduro government's US embassy today:— Anya Parampil (@anyaparampil) May 3, 2019
"You are not welcome here! This is not your embassy!"
"You are an assassin!"
"Tarre: denounce the US sanctions that are killing your ppl in VZLA!"
"You're a puppet of the US government!" pic.twitter.com/e59wdPPyWG
To all who care about protecting international law & preventing another catastrophic US regime change operation:— CODEPINK (@codepink) May 3, 2019
COME TO THE VENEZUELAN EMBASSY IN DC TOMORROW!
As the thuggish opposition harasses and assaults peace activists, let's surround the embassy with love & resistance!
