We are inside the Venezuela Embassy to protect it from a hostile takeover by an unelected group of Guaidó supporters, a takeover that would dangerously escalate the conflict. If the opposition takes over the D.C. Embassy, the Venezuelan government will probably take over the U.S. Embassy in Venezuela. The U.S. could consider this an act of war and use it as an excuse to invade. We can’t allow that to happen. That’s why, despite intense harassment and even a cut-off of our food supplies by right-wing thugs, our peaceful presence INSIDE the Embassy continues.
