Emergency Response Network (ERN)
Tuesday, 14 March 2006

On the weekend of March 4-6, 2006, over 400 people gathered at the Venezuela Solidarity Conference in Washington, DC to form a Venezuela Solidarity Network (VSN). One of the decisions taken by acclamation of the delegates present was the formation of a Venezuela Emergency Response Network (ERN). (

Several organizations and individuals are already working to coordinate and develop the ERN. We invite other local and national organizations to join us in this effort in order to build a broad and far-reaching network.

* The ERN will link up tens and hundreds of thousands of people in the US and around the world in order to respond to provocations against Venezuela both large and small.

* The first tier of response would be the coordination of email, phone, and related campaigns in response to Venezuela-related legislative initiatives, media disinformation, and inflammatory rhetoric from persons in the public eye.

* The second tier would involve calls for and the organization of public demonstrations in response to critical provocations and interventions such as coup or assassination attempts, electoral manipulation, economic sabotage, or invasion by either the U.S. or its proxies.

For example, if Pat Robertson were to again call for Chavez' assassination, we could coordinate a massive email / fax / phone call / letters-to-the-editor response. If there are more serious provocations, we will have a network and plan in place in order to mobilize on the streets against it.

We encourage everyone who opposes US intervention in Venezuela to get in touch with us in order to start building a far-reaching ERN in order to respond to any and all provocations.
