This Thursday the President in Charge of the country, Juan Guaidó, made a call to Venezuelans for the “Protest to Save Venezuela” to fulfill a National Salvation Agreement, made during the presentation of the “Plan Save Venezuela.”
“That I am calling for organized and civic protest to demand our rights? Yes. I am calling for a protest to save Venezuela and to be able to demand a National Salvation Agreement. This Agreement is not going to arrive alone, it involves exercising the majority, taking the ‘Salvemos a Venezuela’ plan to the streets.”
This Thursday, June 3rd, in the city of Caracas and in the company of Deputies of the legitimate National Assembly, democratic forces, students, civil society, among others, the President in Charge Guaidó made the presentation of this plan which highlighted four fundamental aspects: First the social and political leaders have the task of explaining the Plan in every corner of the country; Second to transform the demands of each sector into one; Third is to organize civic protests; and the last one is the incorporation of all sectors.
He said that “this is not starting from scratch”, because there is already a path traveled with the majority that has been built for years and that is why today they are “together and unified.”
“Here there is Unity and plenty. Unity has been a necessary tool and that is why we have to avoid dispersion in order to defeat the dictatorship. I tell you once and for all that the possibility of regional elections is not going to divide us, it is going to find us on the street demanding our rights. The dictatorship is not going to divide what we have achieved with hard work.”
He reaffirmed that Venezuela urgently needs a National Salvation Agreement and that the democratic forces “are ready” to achieve it.
“I call to take seriously the process (of Agreement) and the lives of Venezuelans. We are not up for jokes or pranks, Venezuela has gone through enough. The babbling and wanting to trivialize a very serious process is not acceptable, and we are not going to fall into that to slowdown a serious process. If anyone has problems with recognition, whether they want it or not, that’s their problem, not ours. Venezuela wants free and fair elections.”
The Route for Venezuela
In the presentation of the Plan Save Venezuela, the President of the Interim Government announced that this Saturday, June 5th, the “Route for Venezuela” will be launched, called on by Venezuelan youth and students.
He said that they have “all our backing and support”, as well as that of the democratic forces, but he also informed that they will accompany the students in this action.
“We can save Venezuela, we are going to make that a reality. This weekend let us replicate in every corner of the country the Plan Save Venezuela, let it be the clear flag of struggle.”
Another of the actions reported by Guaidó framed within the Plan is the formation of regional and municipal commands, for which he called on those who were members of the volunteers and Aid and Freedom Committees to organize the “Commands Save Venezuela” with all Venezuelans who want to participate and contribute their grain of sand to the fight.
