March on Human Rights Watch in New York City on Thursday, part of day of action in solidarity with Venezuela

This Thursday, March 5, will be a national day of action in the US in solidarity with Venezuela, with events to be held in cities across the country. I won’t be able to attend any of the scheduled events, which is regrettable (well, for some – those focused on “remembering Hugo Chávez” don’t interest me especially). But one in particular caught my eye:
New York City, NY
Thursday, March 5
5th Avenue between 33rd and 34th Street
4:00 p.m.
March: “Human Rights Watch, Weapon of the U.S. State Department”
A rally in support of human rights protesting a major human rights organization might initially seem bizarre. But HRW has been somewhat suspect when it comes to humanitarian imperialism for some time. The information documented in this letter from last July leaves little doubt as to the organization’s ties to the Obama administration and US intelligence agencies. These ties substantially compromise HRW’s mission and undermine its credibility.
