CLACSO strongly rejected Trump’s threats and instead argued for a political solution to the crisis in Venezuela.

The Latin American Council of Social Sciences, CLACSO, has warned against U.S. military intervention after U.S. President Donald Trump said he would consider a “military option” against Venezuela.

In the statement published on Facebook, the organization listed the consequences of military action, pointing to the impacts of previous U.S. interventions in the region including “incalculable civilian deaths” and “incalculable economic loss.”

“No region of the world in the last 200 years has suffered as much abuse from the U.S. empire as Latin America,” it added.

CLACSO strongly rejected Trump’s threats and instead argued for a political solution to the crisis in Venezuela.

“CLACSO expresses its strongest rejection of these declarations. We believe that whatever your position may be on the political crisis in Venezuela, we must unite to express our firm rejection of the violation of the sovereignty of any Latin American and Caribbean country.

“We believe that only Venezuelans can overcome through dialogue and deliberate dialogue the grave situation in the country,” read the statement.

CLACSO is an international, non-governmental organization with UNESCO associate status. It is made up of 616 centers of investigation across 47 countries.
