Ceaseless. So it should, and will be the protest for freedom in Venezuela, so said the President (e) of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, who from the Central University of Venezuela (UCV), ratified the convocation to take the streets this Saturday 16th of November.
“On November 16th and as many days as necessary we will be in ceaseless protest throughout country; that is what street without return means. Ceaseless protest is not a slogan, nor a magic wand. Venezuelans, all of us Venezuelans have plenty of reasons to protest on the 16th and as many days as necessary until we achieve the change that is urgent in the country.
He said that despite the regime’s constant threats and its actions aimed at instilling fear in Venezuelans; they will not stop the struggle for the nation’s freedom which passes through the route established since last January 5th of this year, and which establishes the cessation of usurpation, then transitional government and finally free elections.
“Some antiriot units are walking around like Carnival floats. As if their floats of terror would make us kneel before the dictatorship. It is not the threats of the regime that have stopped us.
Guaidó was this Thursday at the UCV attending an invitation from his students, and other public and private universities, to receive a document with a series of proposals regarding the threat of intervention made by the regime in past days and to be executed next year.
It won’t be the last time
The President in charge of the country warned that on November 16th “it will not be the last time” to insist on the streets of every corner of the country until freedom is achieved, which is why he once again called for “trust and unity of all factors”.
“We all need each other in this struggle, that’s why I came to ask you for help, not for me, but for Venezuela. Today Venezuela needs you. For my part I hope to be up to the demands of you students and of the country.”
He remarked that “protest continues to be a tool of struggle” and that is why it should not be underestimated, on the contrary, it should be “used as many times as necessary.”
As for the mobilization and details of Saturday, he asked to be aware of the information disseminated by the political activists, by the deputies of the National Assembly (NA) through their official social network accounts, and by political leaders.
Finally, the President of Parliament welcomed Russia’s recognition of Bolivia’s interim President, Jeanine Añez.
