A week from November 16th, Venezuelan President Juan Guaidó continues to tour the country “agitating consciences” and asking Venezuelans to come out that day with the tricolor held high in every corner of the country.
The call was made in the state of Lara, where he fulfilled an agenda that included a visit to a municipal market, a walk, citizens’ assemblies, and the “Western Zonal Encounter”.
“Let’s go out on November 16th to recover our Christmas, let’s raise on the 16th, let’s wake up and go out with the tricolor high all over Venezuela. I am in Barquisimeto because I came to look for you to come out to the streets. The 16th is already a victory if we take to the streets”.
He thanked the Venezuelans, the deputies of the National Assembly (AN), the political leaders and the activists for “not giving up” in spite of the persecution, intimidation and harassment of the regime. He recalled that the union of all factors is what has maintained the struggle for freedom in the country.
The President in charge was accompanied by the first vice-president of the NA, Edgar Zambrano; the secretary, Edinson Ferrer; deputies; and leaders of the Lara region.
No change in the route
On his tour through the state, Guaidó talked with the merchants and customers; he asked them to join the struggle of the teachers, students, university professors, nurses; “because the struggle of some is the struggle of all of Venezuela”.
He ratified that the route to achieve freedom for the country that comprises the cessation of usurpation, transitional government and free elections, is maintained.
“In order for there to be truly free presidential elections, the usurpation must first cease and there must be a transition to have truly free presidential elections. Of course we are working for free elections. An impartial National Electoral Council would call for free presidential elections”.
He said that “the only victory against the dictatorship is that it goes away”; therefore he insisted on not losing hope, because he assured that “it is useless to be a majority remain in the house”.
The President of Venezuela participated in a walk in the Andres Eloy Blanco sector where he also did a House by House, inviting Venezuelans to join the struggle actively because “it depends on us” to achieve the objectives set.
