The president of the National Assembly’s Borders Sub-committee, Deputy Karim Vera, alerted the world to the dangerous situation to which Venezuelans are being exposed. In their eagerness to reach Colombia, they are exposing their lives by crossing the Táchira River and thus achieving freedom.
Vera explained that due to the recent rains in This State, the river that separates Venezuela from Colombia has grown, “even so, that has not been an impediment for the walkers to take risks and cross it. The desperation, hunger and misery, sadly motivates them to take a huge risk.”
The deputy stressed “the dictatorship refuses to accept that they are the only ones responsible for what is happening in the irregular footpaths of San Antonio, they have made it clear that they will do anything to continue to subject citizens to extreme situations and we see this daily when they declare publicly. Recently on the issue of gasoline, in Táchira they have implemented innumerable failed plans that only harm the common citizen because we have already seen how for political acts of the PSUV there is ample transportation and there is no chip (electronic fuel rationing device) that counts”.
