“We condemn in the strongest terms the threat of military action by U.S. President Donald Trump against the democratic Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela!” the union wrote in a message on Facebook.
Using the hashtag #TrumpHandsOffVenezuela, the union joined the international solidarity campaign in support of Venezuela.
Social media users from across the world have used the hashtag to condemn Trump’s threatened use of force against Venezuela.
