Embassy Protection Collective (EPC) members stayed in the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC for 37 days to protect the Vienna Convention and prevent an escalation of conflict with Venezuela. During that time, EPC members inside were cut off from receiving food, electricity and water. EPC members who tried to deliver food were physically assaulted. All EPC members were subjected to loud noises, strobe lights, harassment, threats and intimidation. On May 16, federal agents raided the embassy and arrested the four remaining EPC members inside.
Your donation will support EPC members who are now facing federal charges by a state with unlimited resources and intent on making an example of EPC members. Please help us to mount a defense of EPC members and by extension the right to take action to protect the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people and their process.
With your support, the EPC will put forward a strong defense of its actions. A victory in this case will be a victory for the anti-imperialist movement.
The fund will also cover costs for one EPC member who was severely injured by the pro-coup mob while trying to deliver food.
