Industry Members Refusing to Buy CITGO Gasoline; Email
Campaign Outlines Venezuelan Dictator's Vows To Bring Down U.S. Government
An email is circulating encouraging people to take a stand against remarks
recently made by Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez by buying gasoline from
companies other than Citgo gas stations. Most recently, workers at SIKA
have received the email from one of their colleagues.
The email states:
Venezuela government is sole owner of Citgo gasoline company. Venezuela
Dictator Hugo Chavez has vowed to bring down the U.S. government. Chavez,
president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: "Enough of imperialist
aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have
to bury imperialism this century."
The guest on his television program, beamed across Venezuela, was Cindy
Sheehan, the antiwar activist. Chavez recently had as his guest Harry
Belafonte, who called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the
Chavez is pushing a socialist revolution and has a close alliance with
Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Regardless of your feelings about the war in Iraq, the issue here is that
we have a socialist dictator vowing to bring down the government of the
U.S. And he is using our money to achieve his goal!
The Venezuela government, run by dictator Chavez, is the sole owner of
Citgo gas company Sales of products at Citgo stations send money back
to Chavez to help him in his vow to bring down our government.
Please decide that you will not be shopping at a Citgo station. Why should
U.S. citizens who love freedom be financing a dictator who has vowed to
take down our government?
Very important. Please forward this to your friends and family. Most of
them don't know that Citgo is owned by the Venezuela government.
