Deputies of the National Assembly commemorated this Friday the birth of the Liberator Simon Bolivar, recalling the libertarian spirit of Venezuelans, that now more than ever is still in force to achieve the second independence.
Deputy Olivia Lozano recalled one of the famous phrases of the father of the country. “It is always noble to conspire against tyranny, against usurpation and against a desolate and innocuous war.”
Meanwhile, parliamentarian Piero Maroun noted that “today we honor the 237th birthday of our liberator Simon Bolivar. A tribute that reminds us that his struggle was never stopped by anyone, and we are called upon to ensure that nothing stops us either,” he said.
“Our thirst for freedom must become one voice. Together and united, let’s go Venezuela,” Maroun added.
For her part, Congresswoman Elimar Díaz noted that “here in Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela’s independence was sealed when the last battle was fought against the Spanish crown on July 24th, 1823. Today, 197 years later, from this land we ratify the fight to regain freedom and put an end to Nicolas Maduro’s drug trade.”
In this regard, parliamentarian Karin Salanova dedicated a special message to the National Guard about the date. “More than two hundred of those dreams of freedom have already passed. The Venezuelan army forgot that oath that is buried somewhere today. Which is to protect and safeguard the country from oppression.”
