The deputies of the Legitimate National Assembly made a tour of the La Dulcera sector of the Mara Municipality, to carry a message of unity, strength, hope and political will, which with firmess will allow us to dismiss the regime that has led the country to its worst humanitarian crisis ever. However, a group of motorcyclists tried to prevent the activity and the people, together with the parliamentarians, prevailed without violence and the anti-social supporters of the dictatorship had to withdraw.
The First Vice President of the National Assembly, the Deputy for Zulia State, Juan Pablo Guanipa, said that the democratic sector of the country is strengthening the unity necessary to achieve the objective of removing Nicolás Maduro.
“Our people are surviving, looking daily for a way to search for at least half a meal, as we say colloquially in Zulia, people survive scavenging, that’s how Nicolás Maduro forces Venezuelans to live.”
He stressed that the only thing this regime has done for the people is to leave it in ruins, because it has taken away the right to food, education, healthcare protection, public services, recreation and sports.
“All rights have not been taken away, we still have the right to be with the family and the ‘right to kick back’ (derecho a pataleo – right to protest) and that is why I invite you to stand up and fight, to get rig of Maduro and start a process of reconstruction of the Venezuelan homeland.”
During the tour, some motocyclists supporters of Maduro’s regime (colectivos – armed gangs) tried to prevent the passage and street activity of the parliamentarians, but both the deputies and the people of Mara who accompanied them kept on and confronted them without violence and the anti-socials had to retreat and withdraw from the site.
The deputy for the state Lara, Luis Florido, when addressing those present, indicated the importance of losing fear “Here we stand firm, head on, without confronting them, but telling them that ‘we are not running before you’.”
He called on all Venezuelans to lose their fear and stand up and stand firm in the face of the dictatorship that has taken away from Venezuelans the right to food, to work, Venezuela needs a political solution.
“When we barely arrived, many of them told us that the groups of about 50 to 100 motorcycles were there and we stood firm, telling them we are not running before you and they had to go back, they had to leave, so we must confront this dictatorship without fear.
Likewise, the deputy for Mérida State, Williams Dávila, stressed that so far they had visited 5 states of the country to carry a message of hope, faith, and trust. That to get out of poverty there must be an essential political change in Venezuela. That is why the deputies of the legitimate National Assembly are visiting all the country, so that Venezuelans join this fight to rescue democracy and the dignity of the people.
“Through really free elections we will remove Maduro dictatorship from power. We fight for the good of the people and God knows that we are doing it in good faith, that is why he gives us the energy, the strength to continue in this fight. We are not in an electoral campaign, we are in a fight against a shameful dictatorship which has plunged the people into poverty,” Dávila said.
While the deputy for Zulia State, Elimar Díaz, pointed out that the Mara Municipality is deeply hit because they have a mayor, whom she described as a criminal, who does not deal with the problems of the community.
“This is a dignified people who are against Nicolas Maduro and who continue to stand up and fight for the freedom of Venezuela. That is why we, the deputies of the legitimate National Assembly, are here and are not going to rest until we achieve freedom and democracy in our country.”
Deputy Macario González was emphatic in pointing out that the deputies of the legitimate AN are strengthening the hope of the entire Venezuelan people. “The dictatorship wants to discourage us, but we cannot allow it, they have no future and we have to continue in the streets until we win freedom.”
“People in Venezuela die for lack of food or medicine, for that reason we have to continue organizing our outrage and activate the streets to continue to have the support of our people and the international community,” said Congressman González.
The parliamentarians who participated in this activity were the vice president of the AN, Juan Pablo Guanipa, and the Deputies Luis Florido, Macario González, Williams Dávila, Elimar Díaz, Avilio Troconiz, Desiree Barboza, Héctor Vargas, Local Democratic Political groups of the State of Zulia, and the community of the Mara Municipality.
