The Biden Administration Kidnaps Venezuelan Diplomat: #FreeAlexSaab Now! by Greg Butterfield – Dandelion Salad (wordpress.com)

The United Nations, the Economic Community of West African States, the African Bar Association, and governments around the world called on Cape Verdean authorities to release Saab and protested that there was absolutely no legal basis to extradite him to the U.S. More than 15,000 people signed an international petition to free the Venezuelan diplomat.
And there are more cases related to the fight against sanctions, where foreign nationals are charged with violating provisions of the (illegal) U.S.-imposed sanctions on countries it seeks to destroy. Such was the case of Meng Wanzhou, a Chinese businessperson who was detained in Canada for nearly three years before finally winning the right to return home to China in September. And of course, there was the Trump regime’s illegal seizure of the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, D.C., in 2019, including the arrest of four embassy defenders. Sanctions are an act of war. So are violations of the international and the universally recognized rights of diplomats. The U.S. empire’s political gangsters carry out these lawless and vile acts because, they laugh to themselves, “Who will dare to stop us?” We must dare — to struggle and to win. Free Alex Saab! Free all political prisoners of U.S. imperialism — domestic and international!
