The President (E), Juan Guaidó, stressed his support for teachers who keep fighting for a better quality of life. He said that all Venezuelans are working to restore their dignity and normality, “our teachers who are the clear demonstration of the needs that all Venezuelans are suffering.”
“To all the teachers and professors, goes our recognition for the courage with which they organized to demand their rights, that of our children, that of the future of Venezuela,” Guaidó reiterated.
The president of Parliament also recalled that the struggle of teachers is not only for better salaries, they are also demanding better schools, a quality school food program and general improvements that guarantee quality education to Venezuelan children.
“In these two days, teachers have shown that they represent that unique sentiment for change. A protest that will not cease until a better country tired of an incapable and corrupt regime that only gives excuses”, added the president.
Guaidó culminated his statement remembering that just as they accompanied the teachers during the national strike, tomorrow the streets will be taken in support of the Zulia state and next November 16th due to the general crisis in Venezuela.
“It is up to us to raise our voices”, he concluded.
The national strike called by the education sector was fulfilled in an 85% and at least 12,330 schools in the country paralyzed their operations during this October 22nd and 23rd.
Professor René Zapata, secretary of the Venezuelan Federation of Teachers of Miranda state, said that, if he did not receive answers to his demands during the next few weeks, the educational union will call another 72-hour national strike
