"If someone wants to see how an empire is defeated in all its facets, come to Carabobo and here you will get the formula of the perfect civic-military union for the wishes of Freedom", were the words of the Sectorial Vice President of Political Sovereignty, Security and Peace , G / J Vladimir Padrino López to open the opening ceremony of the Works and Monuments for the Bicentennial of the Battle of Carabobo, led by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro.
From the solemn Campo de Carabobo, Padrino López presented a historical tour to those present, in which he highlighted the courage and resistance of the patriot army led by the Liberator Simón Bolívar, who in that same plain faced and defeated the Spanish army, which for that time then it was the most consolidated empire of the time. "Carabobo is dignity, Carabobo is freedom, Carabobo is independence and Carabobo is the future of always for all Venezuelans," he exclaimed.
"It has been worth reaching 2021 victorious, it has been worth arriving on this date in unity and breaking with the ghosts of betrayals," said the Minister of Defense, also recognizing that it has been a path of effort and sacrifice due to the constant systematic aggressions of the current American empire.
On the other hand, he highlighted the role of the Presidential Commission, headed by Vice President Delcy Rodríguez, for the supervision work undertaken to materialize the works that claim this field of liberators, heroes and heroines. "We have put our heart in it, we have put passion in it, to serve the people of Venezuela," he said.
