An activist interrupts OAS meeting to legitimize coup d’état in Venezuela.

WASHINGTON, USA – The majority of the member countries of the Organization of American States (OAS) rejected Juan Guaido as President of Venezuela this Thursday, despite the pressures of the United States to support him.

The Secretary of State himself, Mike Pompeo, attended the extraordinary meeting of the Permanent Council of the OAS, orchestrated to demand support for the self-titled Venezuelan President, but he was only supported by 15 of the 34 member countries of the entity.

The illegitimate call was signed by Argentina, Bahamas, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, as well as Colombia, Honduras, Guatemala, Haiti, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the Dominican Republic and the United States.

Pompeo’s speech was interrupted by Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the Rose Code American pacifist group, who raised a banner that read: Do not support a coup d’état in Venezuela.
