Venezuelan Constituent Assembly Debates Consequences of U.S. Blockade

Caracas, August 14 (Prensa Latina) The Permanent Territorial Sovereignty Commission of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) will hold a meeting this Wednesday in the state of Carabobo to analyze the consequences of the U.S. economic blockade.

The objective of these so-called ‘Open Council Meeting’ is to discuss and guide the people on the implications of the total blockade of goods, services, medicines, and food, imposed by the US government and promoted by the Venezuelan far-right, noted Constituent Basew Asfur.

The ANC Commission is not only dedicated to the defense of the border area but also to food sovereignty, health and education, stated Asfur on the television program Al Aire, broadcast by Venezolana de Televisión.

He pointed out the need to consult the people on a daily basis and gather their opinions and proposals for the benefit of the Bolivarian Revolution. ‘We are here to listen to the different proposals on the defense of our sovereignty. We are going to visit the border as part of the commission.’ 

He invited the people to participate in the analysis of the issues and in the collection of signatures that has taken place since last August 10 in rejection of the US government’s latest attack.

At the beginning of last week, the White House issued an order blocking the assets of the Venezuelan State abroad and imposing severe sanctions on entities or individuals that carry out any type of commercial activity with the country, which provoked the repudiation of Venezuelans and the international community.

In the midst of the political tensions, the ANC convened an extraordinary session to analyze specific issues in order to ensure peace and stability in the country and to establish a strategy to defend national security and sovereignty.
