The First Lady, Fabiana Rosales, recalled on Monday the struggle of Congressman Freddy Guevara after two years in prison and the persecution against him by Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
“They believed that by persecuting Congressman Freddy Guevara they were going to stop his fight against the corruption that has now become a dictatorship. Two years ago they wanted to put him behind bars because he exercised the constitutional mandate that the people gave him, when he was elected Congressman of our legitimate National Assembly”, Rosales said through her personal Twitter account.
The First Lady recalled that Congressman Guevara was one of the leaders who in 2017 went out to protest against the regime and protected several citizens from military retaliation.
“From his tribune of struggle, our deputy Freddy Guevara continues his work for the reconquest of democracy, with the route traced for the cessation of the usurpation of political power”, she stressed.
Rosales assured that with the actions taken by Juan Guaidó’s Presidency-in-Charge and the street struggle, the democratic Venezuela that the majority wants will be achieved. “It will take us to the country of the future, of freedom, without hunger, without persecution. If the street did not have the strength, the dictatorship would not imprison those who invoke to struggle from them”, she explained.
“Let no one stop our Venezuelans, let them stand firm like the political prisoners, like the persecuted and the exiled. God bless our nation”, concluded Rosales.
