Over the last several days, VFP members from around the U.S. have joined the vigil outside the Embassy of Venezuela in support of VFP member Ken Ashe and other peace activists who are under siege inside the Embassy. The activists are in the Embassy at the invitation of the democratically elected government of Venezuela.
Late last night, Tuesday, five VFP members participated in a successful delivery of food, medicines, and clothing to our friends inside the Embassy. Despite intimidation and physical blocking from right-wingers, we remained nonviolent, and achieved our objective.
VFP members here this week include Bill Perry, Mike Hearington, Bruce Berry, Al Glatkowski, Russell Johnson, San Adams. VFP president Gerry Condon and Board member Maurice Martin are also present. And Ken Ashe, of course, who is among those inside the Venezuelan Embassy.
