The president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, called on Venezuelans to strengthen internal mobilization after the approval of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) in the Security Council of the Organization of American States (OAS).
“Today we are not only a majority, we exercise a majority, international support and support in the OAS. In that organism the usurpation has ceased and soon here it will also cease definitively, in our country, once and for all.”
He informed that in the next few hours he will give Venezuela and the world important announcements and said that international support for his legitimate government will continue to increase. “In the next few days we will see how more countries in the international community join us and tomorrow, they will see important announcements”, he said.
The president in charge thanked the Venezuelan political parties for the high level of Venezuelan political awareness and responsibility they have assumed. “Nobody here is thinking of a position or January 5, because that is light years away from that moment we are living today. We have been persecuted, but we have not stopped for a second. We will continue to assume the risks that are necessary for Venezuela, they must be clear of that”.
He insisted that the brave struggle that the Venezuelan people have given in recent years has not been in vain. “Today, everything we have done has a meaning, and it is Venezuela. Like this week at the OAS, where we activated the TIAR consultative body, we stand without fear in all the areas of struggle to end this tragedy. We must see the contrast between an usurper, locked alone in Miraflores and us here between friends and family, because we are not afraid to walk the streets of Venezuela and openly face our people, with the risk tis entails.”
The Bachelet report will bring consequences
He warned civil and military public officials that the update of the report on human rights violations in Venezuela, recently presented by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, will bring consequences to those who have been accomplices or executors of crimes against humanity towards Venezuelans.
In addition, he demanded that Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship reveal the location of the criminals Jesús Santrich, Iván Márquez and others of the dissident Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). “Enough of the dictatorship protecting or transferring our territory to these criminals. We support the president, Iván Duque, in his fight against regional terrorism.”
He confirmed that the cessation of the usurpation of Nicolás Maduro in the Presidency does not depend on a single citizen; therefore, he called on Venezuelans to continue exerting pressure to defeat the antidemocratic, inefficient and repressive dictatorship. “Here we are, Venezuela. I came to look for you because this fight is not of a single man or of a single woman but of a whole people that resists and remains committed to achieving freedom and democracy. I ask you to keep your spirits, strength and hope, exercising our powerful majority in the streets.”
President Guaidó fulfilled this Saturday an intense crusade through the Miranda state, where he led a tour of the La Redoma de Prados del Este market, an assembly of citizens next to the neighbors of the Bello Monte hills and ended with a walk from Cruz de El Calvario Square to Bolívar Square in El Hatillo.
