For Congresswoman Desiree Barboza, the collapse of public services in Venezuela represents a systematic violation of human rights and a notable deterioration in the quality of life of Venezuelans. “Today, the quarantine is endured in the midst of constant blackouts, without drinking water, gasoline or gas.
Barboza said that in Zulia State there is electrical rationing 12 hours a day and, in some areas of the State, the inhabitants spend up to 20 hours without electricity. “In the states of Lara, Táchira and Trujillo happens the same thing.”
She noted that in addition to the electrical failures, there is the problem of drinking water supply in homes and the shortage of gasoline that affects the entire national territory.
“Venezuelans are forced to walk several kilometers to carry some drinking water to their homes in order to survive,” she said.
The leader of Voluntad Popular said that Venezuela is paralyzed by the lack of fuel and assured that while in the capital they spend hours in line to fill up the vehicles, in the interior of the country the situation is more complicated.
On the particular case of the Zulia region, Barboza denounced that for two months there has been no fuel at the service stations.
“This has led to the smuggling of gasoline, now they sell it for between one and two dollars a liter. While the crisis worsens and deepens, the dictatorship continues to persecute and imprison those who think differently”, concluded the representative of the National Assembly, who maintains that she will continue working until a “Venezuela of progress and freedom” is achieved.
