The organization of a right-wing extremist summit on Capitol Hill in Washington to attacking Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Cuba and Nicaragua was denounced on Wednesday.
The event will take place on May 26 under the slogan: Legitimacy Lost? How 21st Century Socialism Subverts Democracy in Latin America. The chair of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, is behind the maneuvers against the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA).
The right-wing assembly will claim that progressive Latin American countries have joined together to undermine rule of law and that they systematically violate rights of their the citizens, Granma newspaper reported. It remarked the meeting is being promoted by the Americas Forum, a group that spreads dirty propaganda and misinformation against countries that do not obey the instructions of the US State Department.
The extremists and coup-plotters include Venezuelan mercenary Moises Naim, part of the Carlos Andres Perez administration during the massacre of El Caracazo.
U.S. Representative Connie Mack, the right-hand man of Ros-Lehtinen, will also be there; he suggested assassinating Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez during another right-wing meeting. Mack is developing a campaign for Venezuela to appear on the list of countries the United States considers sponsors as state sponsors of terrorism.
