“Time and again yes yes, our country is feasable and it is worth fighting for. A few hours after exercising its presential participation in the Popular Consultation, it is already a success. Today is a victory for a people that is not going to surrender until they see freedom reborn “, this was the evaluation that the President of Venezuela and the national parliament made at the closing of the Popular Consultation campaign that will culminate this Saturday, December 12th.
At a press conference held before national and international media, accompanied by representatives of the Organizing Committee, deputies of the national Parliament, representatives of the political parties of the democratic forces, and by civil society, Guaidó said that despite the threats, blackmail, persecution , and even, censorship, it was possible to mount and execute the Popular Consultation so that millions of Venezuelans could participate inside and outside the country.
“We must celebrate the combative spirit of Venezuelans who are not going to allow their rights to be stolen. I want to thank the thousands of volunteers, as well as the political parties. And a special recognition to the Organizing Committee because despite the threats and the persecution they achieved a feat: to organize the Popular Consultation ”.
From the Plaza de Los Palos Grandes, in the Chacao municipality -the site where the meeting with the media was held- the President of the interim Government said that the Popular Consultation calls them all, also provides a space, under a dictatorship, for millions to express themselves.
“It is a victory that they find this morning -Saturday, December 12th- at each Participation Center. I invite all the political leaders that I have accompanied in the Unity struggles to participate.”
In the message that Guaidó gave to Venezuelans at the closing of the Popular Consultation campaign, he highlighted the courage they have shown in these years of struggle and especially on December 6th, by not becoming participants in the dictatorship’s fraud despite of threats and blackmail.
“They are going to try to scare us, but who fears? The dictator came out saying that on the 12th people would celebrate in the Bolivar squares of the country. Celebrate what?”
Likewise, he took the opportunity to make a call not to give credit to the false information that circulates on WhatsApp chains about supposed figures on participation in the Popular Consultation. He insisted on obtaining information through official channels such as the social networks of the Popular Consultation or the web www.consultaporvzla.com
