Buffalo activists brave storm to defend Venezuela gov’t

Jan. 25 — At 7:30 a.m. today, intrepid organizers and activists in snowy, cold and windy Buffalo, N.Y., put up a banner on the overpass facing traffic on the busiest downtown expressway.  The banner read, “U.S. Hands Off Venezuela, NO Intervention, NO Coup!” and was greeted with enthusiastic honks of support from rush-hour drivers. The action was initiated by the following groups including Buffalo International Action Center, Buffalo Democratic Socialists of America, Buffalo Spring Action 2018, Burning Books, Workers World Party and more.
