New York, NY - An emergency action was held at the Venezuelan Consulate in New York City, March 18, after news broke that supporters of the Venezuelan coup were let into Consulate by the State Department. One of the participants was live-tweeting the takeover, claiming that they “assumed control” of the Consulate.

A crowd of 30 people gathered in front of the Consulate, waving a Venezuelan flag and leading chants against the coup. Attendees attempted to go into the Consulate six times, and some hecklers trolled the action, but were quickly shouted down by the protesters.

The call was spread by No War on Venezuela, a broad coalition of organizations against U.S. intervention in Venezuela.
