Portland, Ore.: Solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution

The Hands Off Venezuela Coalition in Portland, Ore., displayed banners and placards calling for “No Sanctions, No Coup, No Media Lies” over the I-5 freeway for two hours during heavy early morning commuting traffic on April 19.

The largest banner read, “Trump and Dems wage war, We say No More.” A dozen placards had messages like: “Guaidó, made in the U.S.A.,” “Media sells war for oil” and “Maduro was elected by 67%.”

Coalition members were met with a constant stream of supportive honks, fists and thumbs up, with an occasional middle finger. Encouraged by the success of reaching so many people, the coalition plans on repeating the action weekly or a few times a month over the many congested highways leading into Portland.
