On a racist police officer smothered 25 May, George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American worker, on a public street in Minneapolis, while other officers held off a group of people trying to stop the attack. Several videos of the arrest showed that he was not armed and did not resist the arbitrary and racist arrest. After they handcuffed him, racist henchmen threw him to the ground and police officer Derek Chauvin choked him for ten minutes, pressing Floyd’s neck onto the asphalt with his knee, even after he lost consciousness. Passers-by filmed the crime and filled millions around the world with outrage. Thousands of protesters echoed the cry of “I can’t breathe” over the next few days.

In quarantine we carried out a virtual chat with our colleague Mercedes Petit, a historical leader of our current, eader of Socialist Left and member of IWU-FI.

We are a group of Venezuelan socialists residing in the United States, bound by our unconditional solidarity towards the working people of our country. We support workers’ and popular struggles against oppression and exploitation, and we sympathize with the fights carried out by independent socialists, feminists, and anti-extractivists against the Venezuelan capitalist state.

The world is suffering a calamity. The coronavirus pandemic is spreading out of control. There are hundreds of thousands infected and thousands of dead. What is happening in the world is unprecedented. Borders are being closed, millions of people and countries are being quarantined. The crisis of the health systems under capitalism is becoming clear.
