Members of the Embassy Protection Collective, who are part of a movement based in the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, DC, released a final statement on Monday moments before US law enforcement officials raided the building in violation of international law.
“We are expecting the police to come in and violate the Vienna Convention with their fictional government claiming that we should leave. It is an unlawful order,” Kevin Zeese, a member of the Embassy Protection Collective, said in a statement on Twitter.
