The representative of the National Assembly in Argentina, Elisa Trotta Gamus, sent a message to the Venezuelans in that country, to whom she reaffirmed her commitment to continue the work entrusted by the president in charge, Juan Guaidó, to strengthen international cooperation to achieve the recovery of democracy in Venezuela and to help migrants and refugees.
In a video broadcast through her social networks, Trotta stressed that this week the world witnessed that “despite facing a dictatorship whose only support is arms, our brave deputies, accompanied by the Venezuelan people, the press and the diplomatic corps, defended and continue to defend Parliament, and with it an entire country that long ago decided to change.
“Everything that has happened has generated greater support from the democratic countries of the world for our cause, the cause of freedom. In this sense, we support and thank the communiqué issued by the Argentine Foreign Ministry on January 5th, when they condemned the events that occurred near the Legislative Palace. In the same way, we respect the decisions taken by the government of this sister country on Tuesday, January 7th,” she added.
In the message, Elisa Trotta stated that “this fight is not about titles or names, this fight is not of one person or one group, it is of an entire country that today is suffering the greatest crisis that the region has seen, but that in spite of this is rising every day to overcome despair, to overcome the obstacles within the country and to leave Venezuela high and dry in every nation to which almost five million compatriots have decided to emigrate”.
For this reason, she reaffirmed her commitment and expressed that “our work continues with more strength than ever, just as it has been done for a long time in Argentina, which is why we assumed, since last year, the representation of the National Assembly of Venezuela in this country. Our work is and will be, to help the thousands of Venezuelans who live in Argentina, to seek solutions to their problems, to support them and to work, also, to achieve the freedom of our country. We will continue doing both things, articulating with the Argentinean institutions more flexibility for our community, working together with the different associations, and always raising the voice of the Venezuelans who have so much to say.
