Door to door, house by house, the route proposed by the president in charge Juan Guaidó is kept in Zulia state. Juan Pablo Guanipa, legitimate governor of the state, continues touring the region, in the midst of a deep public service crisis, which especially affects the Zulians.
“Currently, the main problem of the Zulians is public services. Whether it is electricity or other, we know the misfortune that we suffer with a criminal rationing of hours and even days, with blackouts that wreck the appliances, with brownouts that do not allow normal housework. But on top of that, there is the issue of water, which has been lacking in many areas for months, when and if it arrives is muddy and that is inaccessible to pay for the vast majority of Zulians”, Guanipa explained from the Chiquinquirá parish of Maracaibo.
However, he explained that it is not only water and electricity services that affect the western state. “We also talk that there is no cooking gas, that people are cooking with firewood and that there is no official report of the number of sick Zulians who cook this way when they need it. The transport system collapsed. The buses were supplanted by kennels and people walk under the inclement sun every day to reach their destination, in a state with temperatures between 38 and 40 degrees Celsius. ”
He added that there is total clarity of who is responsible of all this problems. “People on the street know that all this has a name: Nicolás Maduro. It is Nicolás Maduro and his system, the architect of this misfortune. The decision to nationalize to destroy. And against that, what should we do? Comfront it, press and go forward and force your way out.”
“We compete against a dictatorship that has a broad communicational apparatus, which also muzzles traditional media, that silences people’s problems, that even threatens journalists personally and that sells through the State channel, a country that nobody knows where it exists, because the Venezuela we are living, of course it is not”, he said.
Therefore, he said that the decision of the opposition forces in the country, is to do what in his opinion, Nicolás Maduro cannot do. “The dictatorship cannot go outside to talk face to face with people. We do, it has been our work of years, the necessary letter of introduction. Without arriving with false promises, without setting deadlines that lead to frustration. We have to knock on door to door, house to house and tell people what we are up to, what we have to do, why we must keep pressing. Our voice of protest will overcome censorship and dictatorship“.
He recalled that the route has been drawn from the National Assembly, led by the president in charge, Juan Guaidó: cessation of usurpation, transitional government and free elections. “The route is defined, the international community accompanies us but we must, internally, raise our voices and never allow them to normalize our misfortune.”
