President Juan Guaidó asked the health sector to be “articulated and firm” in the struggle for Venezuela, during the meeting he had with them this Friday, within the framework of the meetings of the “Agenda for the 2020 struggle”.
“It is necessary to have resolve, articulation and focus in the actions that we undertake to continue advancing and achieve the objective that we all want: the freedom to be able to rebuild the country. It is necessary to articulate (actions) in order to achieve the short-term goals.
The President in charge indicated that in this cycle of meetings with the live forces of the country for the construction of the “Agenda of the 2020 struggle”, which started last Monday 9th of December, there are many points in common between the sectors and the main one of them is the “full awareness” of fighting together and united because only in this way can the objectives be achieved.
It should be noted that this is the fifth meeting held this week, the first was with 27 political parties, then with businessmen, the third with the deputies of the National Assembly, the fourth with the education sector, and the fifth with the health sector.
Guaidó, in addition to listening to the representatives of the doctors, nurses and NGOs, asked them, as he has done with those who have met during the week to raise a series of proposals on health, which will be part of the “Agenda of struggle 2020”.
“I am not asking that anyone sacrifice itself, or leaps into the void, what I ask is to articulate the struggle, we have to go in parallel, so I call for unity of all sectors. We have all the tools and we are going to use them. This moment calls us all.
The representatives of the health sector who participated in the meeting of the “Agenda of the 2020 struggle”, expressed their commitment to fight and celebrated that the President in charge of Venezuela, makes them participants in the work for the rescue and subsequent construction of the country.
Douglas León Natera, president of the Venezuelan Medical Federation, said that the current and subsequent situation in Venezuela demands “working together,” and that in the health sector they are working on a proposal for health policies to be implemented once the change is achieved.
Ana Contreras, president of the College of Nurses of the Capital District, said that they will continue in the street and in each health center denouncing and protesting to make visible the crisis that “is worsening every day.”
For her part, Janeth Gonzalez, president of the Barinas State College of Nurses, assured that they will continue with the social pressure on the streets “to advance in political change because without it, there will be no solution to the crisis in the country.”
