The president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, presented this Sunday the progress made this week by the Legitimate Government to achieve the greatest and best possible unity inside and outside Venezuela to generate the necessary pressure to achieve change.
The Venezuelan head of state highlighted how on Women’s Day, “women from all sectors of the country raised their voices in unison for the freedom of Venezuela. Venezuelan women are rewarded in the world for their courage and struggle. Evidence of this is the recognition given to Ana Rosario Contreras and Deputy Tamara Adrián.”
In addition, he indicated that the National Assembly continues to propose alternatives to the problems of Venezuelans: “we approve the follow-up to the complaints of violence against women and we reject the expansion of the monetary cone, which reflects the destruction of the economy by the dictatorship.”
In terms of healthcare, he emphasized how “our medical and nursing unions came together to denounce the emergency that the healthcare sector is going through in the country.”
“The democratic alternative continues to defend Venezuelans in all spaces: Delsa Solórzano reiterated that there is no justice in Venezuela, Voluntad Popular brings help to our people and Copei strengthened the institutions of political parties,” he said.
INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT TO THE STRUGGLE OF VENEZUELA
The Venezuelan president highlighted how the international community showed its commitment to Venezuela and its understanding of the migration crisis. “We appreciate the measures taken by the United States with the TPS to favor our migrants in that country and that of the Dominican Republic with the National Regularization Plan for Venezuelans.”
He also underlined the strong and unequivocal support of the Italian Parliament. “In addition, we held meetings with the Swedish Foreign Minister and the Swedish Parliament in which we agreed to work to achieve free, fair and verifiable elections in Venezuela.”
At the humanitarian level, Guaidó highlighted, “the updates of both the Report of the UN’s Fact Finding Mission and the Bachelet Report, which confirm that crimes against humanity and Human Rights violations are committed in Venezuela. We appreciate the pronouncements of the free world in the face of these events.”
“Aware of this situation, the Government in Charge thanked the arrival of 40 tons of humanitarian aid to Venezuela through the Red Cross,” he added.
COORDINATE EXTERNAL PRESSURE AGAINST THE REGIME
The President in Charge recalled that during this week the articulation between those in the world who are fighting to restore freedom to the region continued. “That is why we spoke with leaders of the democratic alternative in Nicaragua and with one of the leaders of the pro-democracy struggle in Myanmar, Thinzar Shunlei.”
“To guide international pressure, we met with the entire Foreign Service of the Interim Presidency.”
In turn, Deputies in exile from the National Assembly held a meeting with the President of the World Inter-Parliamentary Union.
“Although the dictatorship wants to make the claims of Venezuelans invisible this week, the more than 40 protests throughout the country sent a clear message: our people are not going to normalize this crisis,” said the president.
To end this week’s recount, he affirmed that “it is time to direct all our forces towards a solution.”
