“We Venezuelans, and the Adecos above all, prefer to die on our feet than to live on our knees in the face of a tyranny that has brought misfortune to Venezuela,” said Carlos Prosperi, secretary of the National Organization of Democratic Action, from Coro, Falcon State.
During the act of institutional reaffirmation held at the Falcon Sectional Executive Committee, led by Secretary General Eliezer Sirit, the militants ratified their unrestricted support for the national secretary general, Henry Ramos Allup, and their commitment to the country’s freedom.
The activity was attended by the vice-president of the white party, Edgar Zambrano; the head of the Parliamentary Fraction, Piero Maroun; and the deputies Williams Dávila, Jesús Yánez and Larissa González, in addition to the regional leadership.
The secretary of organization said that, unlike what those sitting in Miraflores thought, Acción Democrática is not represented by an electoral card or an acronym. “Acción Democrática is a heritage of the Venezuelan people,” he said.
He noted that the people’s party and its bases are standing firm against the regime of Nicolás Maduro.
“We, the Adecos, do not bend to tyranny. We have enough morals to go around Venezuela and tell them that while some people said ‘patria, socialism and death’, and when they started to die they took their death away, we 79 years later will continue to say bread, land and work,” he stressed.
Abstention is a decision
In his speech, Zambrano indicated that Acción Democrática, despite being a pro participation party, took the decision to abstain in the legislative elections called for December 6th.
He recalled that currently neither AD, nor Primero Justicia, nor Voluntad Popular have the cards to participate in an electoral process due to blacklisting by the regime.
“How can we participate without our card? How can we betray our militancy, our history and the legacy of our founders? We are not going to participate because we are not going to play the part of the dictatorship and even less so of the traitors,” emphasized the vice president of the People’s Party.
As part of the regrouping and reorganization of Acción Democrática, this week the Secretary of National Organization was received by the CES of Cojedes, where the new municipal authorities of Tinaco were sworn in.
They were also in Yaracuy where the Municipal Executive Committees of Independencia and Cocorote were renewed. In addition, they participated in institutional events in Acarigua, Portuguesa State; and Barquisimeto, Lara State.
This Saturday, a successful tour is expected to conclude in Tinaquillo, Cojedes, in a women’s event organized by the Secretary General of the CES, Dennis Fernández.
Davila said that Acción Democrática will carry out the task of preventing them from stealing the hope that citizens have placed in their political leaders.
To achieve this, she added, the AD will become “the organizational vanguard of the people” who will continue to be in the streets until Chavismo leaves.
“We are not a dissolved party, we are not an extinct party, we are that horse that goes through the prairie and nobody can stop it. We are invincible and we are going to fight until we win the fight against the dictatorship,” she said.
