Jose Mujica, Uruguay’s much-loved former president, led a march in the capital city Montevideo for “peace in Latin America” and “in solidarity with the people of Venezuela.”
Hundreds of Uruguayans walked alongside Pepe and Vice President Raul Sendic, demanding that the United States withdraws its declaration that Venezuela presents an “extraordinary” threat to “national security.”
Mujica has been vocal in the outcry over the U.S. aggression towards Venezuela.
Earlier this month, Mujica said that he was “fed up with (the U.S.) meddling” in internal Latin American business.
Commenting on U.S. President Barack Obama’s declaration that Venezuela presented a “national threat,” Mujica said that whoever says that the South American country could be “a threat” to the U.S. “has a screw loose.”
