Jorge Arreaza is Venezuela’s Foreign Minister, a country of 30 million people that has had diplomatic relations with Canada for seven decades. In this online event, Minister Arreaza, speaking from Caracas, will present on the Canadian government’s efforts to overthrow his government in a talk entitled “Canadian Interference in Venezuela.”

Nearly two years ago, the Trudeau government threw their wholehearted support behind a U.S.-backed plan to declare an opposition politician, Juan Guiadó, “Interim President” of Venezuela.

Since then, the Trump administration has orchestrated numerous coup attempts and appealed for a mutiny by the military against the democratically-elected government of President Nicolás Maduro. It has also adopted extreme unilateral coercive economic measures against the country. The Canadian government is backing the U.S. aggression by imposing sanctions and as a key organizer of the illegitimate Lima Group, whose sole purpose is regime change in Venezuela.
