The deputy to the National Assembly for the State of Amazonas, Mauligmer Baloa, denounced the dramatic situation that the Piaroas indigenous people are going through in order to obtain food and medicine.
Baloa explained that “due to the need that our Piaroas Indians from the Autana municipality in Amazonas State are going through, they must navigate by boat to the Colombian border to be able to sell the product of their harvest and thus be able to buy dry food. Because Maduro’s regime ended the trade in the south of Venezuela”.
She explained that “they have to go rowing in curiara, because there is no gasoline for the engines, to be able to sell their crops and they must do it at the border since there are no bolivars in the south of Venezuela but pesos, dollars or gold”.
She added that “with what they manage to sell at the border, they can buy dry food, personal hygiene products and medicines for their families, this is the real drama that we indigenous peoples are living through”.
Congresswoman Mauligmer Baloa lamented the fact that Maduro’s regime is so indolent with the indigenous peoples that it makes their survival increasingly difficult.
