The national leader of Primero Justicia and deputy of the legitimate National Assembly, Karim Vera assured that the economic scenario in Venezuela is becoming increasingly unsustainable, where a family tries to survive with a minimum wage that barely reaches 0.66 cents a month. At least this is the case in the State of Táchira, as compared to a basic food basket that is currently at 19.73 U.S. dollars and is constantly increasing.
Vera indicated that the situation is complex and is worsened by COVID-19, especially “in a country where its hospital system is destroyed by Nicolás Maduro’s regime, haunted by the war of irregular and uniformed groups that are fighting for control of part of our border territories for drug trafficking in collusion with Venezuelan authorities.”
Furthermore, she insisted that “they have subjected citizens to hunger, to absurd controls regardless of whether they die of hunger, covid or irregular armed groups as occurs in Apure, and to date, they do not give a coherent, sensible explanation of what is happening. They wash their hands blaming alleged attacks against a failed revolution, a ‘socialist process’ that only applies to the homes of Venezuelans, but not to those who hold positions in State institutions.
She described as miserable “the fact that the regime had the chagrin of refusing to receive 12 million vaccines arranged by the legitimate NA through COVAX, even when they were consulted such a decision. Don’t they call themselves democrats who consult everything with the people? What about those who are waiting to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, but who see in anger how there are Venezuelans of first and second class, chosen and labeled by bandits?”
Karim Vera insisted “as long as Maduro remains in power, we Venezuelans will continue to suffer, die or watch our children leave, at least those who are fleeing the crisis. With internal organization and mobilization together with international support, we must advance in change, a responsible and democratic change, that benefits everyone equally and ends with the privileged groups of demagogues of a failed revolution.”
