President (E) Juan Guaidó expressed his support for the family of Deputy Juan Requesens and all the people who have been kidnapped for thinking differently to the regime of Nicolás Maduro.
“Today, whole Venezuela refuses to surrender when it comes to fighting for a just cause, no matter if we were one, two, three, provided it is a just and necessary cause, for those who are persecuted and harassed by this regime,” he said.
“The dictatorship still has the cynicism of not taking responsibility for having expropriated, destroyed the country, persecuted, violated human rights. Today, the High Commissioner for Human Rights is not a friend, Pepe Mujica, a reference for the world’s left, that openly calls them dictators already seems that he is not a friend”, said the President.
“And the cynicism of the regime still advises Venezuelans not to go to the US because it is purportedly dangerous, even when they did not comment on the events in Cota 905, the massacre of Santa Elena de Uairen, the confrontation between guerrillas, paramilitaries and ELN at the Venezuelan border, fighting for seizure of mines of the Venezuelan State in a surrender of our sovereingty. They have taken cynicism and pride to a whole new level”, said Guaidó.
“What can we tell our children? That we didn’t try? That we didn’t fight? Juan and all political prisoners know what they are going to answer, not only that they tried, but also that they paid the consequences”, the president added.
“We as a society, what are we going to say to the next generations? That we were victims of despair and mistrust? Or on the contrary that we overcame, that we got up, that we fought, that it was not division that prevailed but the union of all the factors, the fight in the streets, the international support, a clear strategy”, he remarked.
“The one of the great difference is in Venezuela now is that we managed to unite a whole country, there is no longer a polarized, divided country, a fragmented opposition, as in the past, today there is a country united in a purpose in a cause, in recovering its freedom, its normality, its democracy, but also a world aligned in this cause”, said the president.
Regarding the embargo approved by the US government, Guaidó declared “sometimes we turn those achievements into a doubt. Those sanctions imposed by the US are against the Maduro’s regime, this is a product of the tools that the democratic world has to pressure a dictatorship aligned with a strategy to exercise the right to protest and the will of the majority through the National Parliament and our will as individuals”.
“We must not turn this efforts, by doubts of a setback. On the contrary we have must have clear of the progress and the strength that we have achieved at this time to move forward and definitively dislodge the dictatorship that keeps Juan and many others behind bars,” he reiterated.
Guaidó confessed that “what we miss is normality, to be able to go to the market and to be able to buy the goods we want, something as simple as bathing. Let us not turn that normality into emergencies for which we stop living by trying to accomplish them. The regime intends to make these needs into a mechanism of social control, to depend on food box, which is necessary because of the misery they generated ”.
In addition, the President sent a clear message to the usurper. “If you are so interested leave Miraflores, that’s how the sanctions will be lifted and your people should know, because you are sure you have cheated on your own people.”
Conversations in Norway
“Our most important allies told us that they are skeptical about the dialogue. But of course we are skeptical! Who trusts the dictatorship? Haven’t they tried to make fun of all the mechanisms for a peaceful outcome? But we don’t see the dialogue as an isolated event. When we see the Norway’s diaslogue mechanism, the International Contact Group, the street pressure, the protest, the diplomatic pressure, the sanctions, the protection of the assets, when we see that we are together, we everything Venezuela”, explained the chief of State.
“The good news is that it depends on us, not on third parties. Thanks to the Requesens family for not giving up and following Juan’s word, unlike the regime that extends a fist we extend our hands to anyone who wants change in the country ”, said the president.
“Even the sanctions have a paragraph that says” everyone who collaborates with the restitution of democracy in Venezuela will be subject to revision or even be exempted from them”, he said.
