An agreement for peace and democracy

This week was full of important events that occupied the media and political agendas, and which I am about to analyze in this article. The first thing I want to mention is the historical, democratic and pacifist significance of the agreement signed by eight of the ten candidates for the presidency of our country.

As I mentioned in the previous article, (and as expected) the candidate of the neoliberal Venezuelan extreme right did not appear before the call of the Electoral Power. Therefore, we presume that Edmundo González Urrutia will not recognize the electoral results of next July 28, and worse still, he would endorse any scenario of violence and destabilization that could threaten the peace of the Republic.

On the other hand, President Nicolás Maduro did attend the signing of the agreement. During all the years of his Government, we have witnessed the democratic spirit of the Head of State, who has had to face the most hostile scenarios and has also been the object of the most ruthless discredit campaigns, both at the national level as international. In any case, there was Maduro responding responsibly to the call of the electoral referee.

“We have taken a step forward to protect peace and I celebrate the signing of this document that is in perfect line with the Barbados agreement… and today with this signature we have said we do not want violence,” said President Maduro in his statement to the media. .

There is another phrase from the president and candidate for the PSUV and the Great Patriotic Pole, that I want to rescue from that appearance and it is this: "If the referee calls you, you are obliged as a candidate to go, to listen to the referee... I call all Venezuelans to support this document.” Which shows Maduro's willingness to adhere to the regulations. Quite the opposite happens on the front sidewalk.

In any case, the call is to our people to be alert to any destabilizing attempt by those who hate Venezuela... We will always bet that on June 28 we will experience a true democratic and participatory party, where peace will reign, that which with We have built so much effort. The violent ones will not stop or return.

We condemn the theft of Citgo

We agree with the executive vice president, Delcy Rodríguez, who stated this week that those responsible for the Citgo robbery are: Leopoldo López, Juan Guaidó, Julio Borges and “the caste of neo-fascist surnames”, of course, protected and promoted by the US government, that the illegal embargo against the Venezuelan oil company continues.

President Nicolás Maduro said last Monday that those responsible for this robbery should go to jail and we agree that this attack cannot go unpunished. It is an unprecedented looting of our heritage that they intend to carry out without allowing us the right to our legitimate defense.

What is happening with Citgo is just a taste of what the Venezuelan fascist right is capable of delivering to the North American empire for the benefit of big capital and to the detriment of sovereignty and the right to self-determination of our people. Citgo belongs to us!
