Venezuelan Embassy | Jesse Jackson | Activists Deliver Food Amidst Violence

179
2

Today marked a small victory for the "Embassy Protection Collective" as their allies - with the support of Rev Jesse Jackson - managed to deliver four bags of food, water, and batteries to the four remaining people inside the Venezuelan Embassy.

The coalition of activists including CODEPINK and ANSWER Coalition had previously been blocked by Juan Guaidó supporters and police in their efforts to make deliveries like this one.

It appears that Jackson's presence caused the police to stand down. One Guaidó supporter attempted to physically stop the delivery by trying to take the food and physically hold the rope, but activists including Ajamu Baraka managed to hold him back long enough to make the deliveries.
