Alfonso Andara, President of Copei Yaracuy, rejected the brutal repression deployed by Nicolás Maduro’s Regime against the Yaracuy people who fight to live in a country in freedom and with quality of life.
The Copei leader pointed out that the protest began in the municipality of Urachiche demonstrating about the shortage of public services and has spread throughout the State of Yaracuy thanks to the brutal repression and the lack of response to the demands of the demonstrators.
Andara assured that in the face of the demands of the people of Yaracuy for cooking gas, water, electricity, gasoline and security, the response of the representatives of the regime have been “repression and arbitrary detentions. Regarding the latter, he assured that the detentions carried out by the Regime are illegal since “innocent people were illegally taken from their homes.”
Also, the Copey President in the region, recalled that the right to protest is enshrined in the national Constitution when he commented that “all Venezuelans have the right to protest and, of course, also to demand to live in a country with quality public services.”
To conclude, Andara assured that “today, the voice of the Yaracuy people in the streets is the clamor of all the Venezuelan people,” and thus he made a call for reflection, since in his opinion, what is lived in Yaracuy State is just a reflection of what is lived in all Venezuela, and therefore, he urged the rest of the country to join these protests.
