They say that Carlos Andrés Pérez is Colombian, they have always said so and that has given him an aura of suspicion. The people of Copei above all have moved that. They distributed a video massively where this origin was pointed out and it was explained that it was agreeing with "the sister republic" to hand over the Gulf of Venezuela, a fact that seemed to be being fulfilled with the deep-water port and that would be the triumph of a conspiracy. that Pérez would have brought in pectoris throughout his life, through his career as a henchman of Leonardo Ruiz Pineda and Rómulo Betancourt, as a criminal Minister of Internal Affairs, as a President with a Third World mask while indebting a Venezuela that had plenty of dollars, as a neoliberal president in this second presidency .
It would have been registered in the birth registry books of Bochalema, in Norte de Santander, for reasons that derived from old village stories. Let us add that the father would have sent his wife to give birth to the child on the Colombian side, in the said town of Bochalema, although it was also registered in a Venezuelan registry. That's what right-wing politicians say, although not all of them because some Caracas oligarchs have been enthusiastic about the Zea plan, the programmatic plan of the Colombian Liberal Party to wrest Zulia from Venezuela. And it was not for less, the deep water port and the IIRSA in general were adopted by something big. Perhaps the correct word for the case is not "son" but "imposed"; It is more typical of the moment of globalization.
The Colombian newspaper Time, December 21, 1991 brings news that comes to meet Venezuelan secessionist plans. It is scandalous, sensational: Carlos Espinosa ratifies his separatist warning:
«The warning of the president of the Congress Carlos Espinosa Faciolince about a possible secession of the Atlantic Coast, made this week, is not a joke. Yesterday what was said was confirmed. “I said that in the event that we were denied the possibility of adopting a territorial ordering model to establish the balance between the regions of the country, in the face of the obstruction and marginalization that we have been subjected to, we were determined to politically translate that deep regional feeling promoting the creation of the Independent Republic of the Caribbean”, he stated in an official statement that he delivered yesterday to journalists. In a press release released by the Senate three days ago, at the end of a meeting of congressmen from the coast, Espinosa said: "We made the decision that either we achieve a territorial reorganization or there will be separation."
Globalization authorizes the regions to speak harshly to the nation state. Will you have the expression of Mr. Faciolince corresponding in Venezuela? Faciolince is not just another politician, he is the President of the Colombian Congress! Magazine Chromos de Bogotá, one of the most popular in that country, will bring in its issue of June 27, 1992, four months after Chávez's coup, an article that answers many questions. It is titled "The Coast, Federal Independence?" and on page 13, corresponding to the index, a map of northern Colombia indicating the departments that would be separated according to Faciolince's initiative. There are seven and each one is identified with a color. The northernmost is the Goajira, yellow; to the south César, red; left Magdalena, purple; Atlantic, yellow; Bolivar, blue; Sucre, dotted yellow; finally Cordoba, red. Below the graph is a text: "The Republic of the Caribbean, a declaration of unity." Unit?
If we look at the westernmost side of the map, we will notice that two of the departments whose secession is being proposed, Goajira and César, border the Venezuelan state of Zulia and their rivers have an outlet to Lake Maracaibo. And if we think historically, we will remember that they were included in the Republic projects of Vicente Herrera in the 1926th century and in those of Pérez Soto and Buckley and London from 1929-XNUMX.
Now let's read the article. It is interesting because it aspired to be the birth certificate of a country that does not appear on the maps. The epigraph reads: "Independence shouts the American people..." and it is noted that it is taken from the National Anthem of Colombia. Yes, the national anthem serves to promote secession in the country that suffered the greatest secessionist outrage in universal history, after Mexico, Panama. The virtual separation of 22% of the Colombian territory that the magazine describes would be an immense damage to its destiny and its economy, but they are treated by the magazine with an objective, even reassuring tone. The first paragraph says:
«A series of sarcastic publications —appeared in the daily El Espectador— against the Colombian regional group known for centuries as “La Costa” and the government's neglect of territorial reordering issues on its parliamentary agenda, threaten to become Llorente's vase for coastal independence. But does the Coast really want to become independent?
«According to the new Constitution, where the concept of Nation was virtually crushed, the costeños could request a referendum and perhaps win it. The world context favors the most extreme aspirations towards a territorial reordering. The reasonable thing would be to take into account the just coastal aspirations and seek national integration within an autonomous or federative framework.
In the new Constitution the concept of Nation was virtually crushed. Note the calm allusion to the global context that favors "the most extreme aspirations towards a territorial reordering."
"Since when Senator Carlos Espinosa Faciolince, then brand new president of the Congress of the Republic, announced a year ago, with hype, cymbals and maracas, the coastal decision to work for effective independence, perhaps within a federal framework, of the departments that make up the Atlantic Coast of Colombia, the idea continued to make its way».
Maybe in the federal framework...
"What is it about? Of something very serious, without a doubt. The costeños complain of the abandonment in which the centralist bureaucracy of Bogotá has kept them. And now, despite the conquests achieved by the regions in the new Constitution, they feel that these advances could get out of hand... Their aspirations, on the other hand, fit perfectly within the global trend to regionalize economic and social problems …/… While the world opens up in all the continents…».
This article is four months after For now, the recitals are read in it, the tricks of the republic of Zulia that Chávez and his cohorts come to frustrate, the federalization legislated in the COPRE, the globalization arguida in the text, the power that globalizes and keeps eating at the bottom of the hand to the presidents, the old plans of the Uribante Group, everything.
