"We, the undersigned labor and socialist activists, hereby express our
support for a genuinely free and independent workers’ movement in

oil sanctions this year that worsen the already terrible economic hardships
which the working class has to endure.

"In particular, we would like to call your attention to the persecution of
workers such as Rodney Álvarez and Jose Bodas and others who are opposed to
U.S. imperialism but are also being repressed by the Maduro regime....."
