President (E) Juan Guaidó said that the Venezuelan people are currently fighting against Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship to achieve a second independence.
He made these statements during the commemoration of the Battle of Carabobo on June 24th.
“199 years ago, our Liberator Army, commanded by Simón Bolívar, took the step to achieve our independence, just as we Venezuelans are currently fighting against a usurper regime for our second independence,” the president said through his personal Twitter account.
Guaidó also recalled that this Wednesday was also Army Day in Venezuela. The also president of the National Assembly added that in these moments of crisis, it is necessary to have the support of a patriotic guard to expel Cuban “invaders” and irregular groups, who are the ones who torture Venezuelans and plunder the nation’s wealth.
The president insisted that Venezuela’s institutions are being held hostage by a small group linked to Maduro’s narco-dictatorship.
“It will remain in the Army to redeem itself, to make its contribution to the recovery of full Venezuelan sovereignty and to be able to call itself again the legitimate heirs of Bolivar and Paez. The liberating army”, he ended.
“Quedará en el Ejército redimirse, hacer su aporte a la recuperación de la soberanía plena Venezuela y poderse llamar de nuevo herederos legítimos de Bolívar y Páez. El ejército libertador”, concluyó.
Hace 199 años, nuestro Ejército Libertador, comandado por Simón Bolívar, dio el paso para lograr nuestra independencia, como en la actualidad los venezolanos luchamos contra un régimen usurpador por nuestra segunda independencia.
También hoy se celebra el Día del Ejército.
