Hundreds of people have taken to the streets of Washington, DC to oppose the upcoming NATO ministerial meeting in the US capital. The demonstrators also decried the continued US involvement in the Venezuelan political crisis.

The march was aimed at showing “mass popular opposition to NATO, wars, racism and US aggression against Venezuela,” the National Mobilization Steering Committee, a loose, ad hoc coalition of activists representing dozens of peace movements and action groups, said in a statement.

Demonstrators gathered at Lafayette Square in front of the White House and then marched through the area, stopping near the offices of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank, and the Organization of the American States (OAS), which the demonstrators also hold partly responsible for the “imperialist” policies of the West. They also marched past the Washington mayor’s office to address local issues, and the Customs & Border Enforcement office to highlight the plight of Latin American asylum seekers coming to the US.

Some slogans also referred to the continued US pressure on Venezuela, where Washington supports self-proclaimed ‘interim president’ Juan Guaido, who seeks to depose the elected leader, Nicolas Maduro. The slogans read: “Hands off Venezuela,” “No war on Venezuela,” and “US Sanctions Caused Venezuela’s Crisis.”
