He added: “If we came to the government through popular power, it was the people who had to defend the revolution and that's how it was: the people went to rescue Chávez, it was a beautiful moment in which the degree of mobilization of the people that they glimpsed was achieved. a political change with Commander Hugo Chávez ”.
