The deputy of the National Assembly, Mauligmer Baloa, called it “hypocrisy” that Maduro’s regime decided to change the name of the Francisco Fajardo highway to Cacique Guaicaipuro while the indigenous peoples are living in crisis.
“Maduro’s regime greatest hypocrisy is to believe that by changing the name of the Francisco Fajardo highway it is vindicating the indigenous peoples,” she said.
The parliamentarian for the State of Amazonas said that the indigenous communities live scourged by the great ethnocide executed by the dictatorship for the gold of the state.
Baloa reiterated that indigenous peoples continue to resist the onslaught of the dictatorship.
“Changing the name of the highway does not solve the lack of drinking water, food and gasoline we are experiencing in Amazonas,” she said.
Nicolás Maduro’s regime changed the name of the Francisco Fajardo Highway, the main road artery of Caracas, to “Great Chief Guaicaipuro, chief of chiefs”, in a process that he mentioned as “decolonization” of all public spaces in the country. Francisco Fajardo was the first generation mestizo founder of the city of Caracas in 1567.
Mayor hipocresía del régimen de Maduro, creer que cambiándole el nombre a la autopista Francisco Fajardo por Cacique Guaicaipuro nos reivindica a los pueblos indígenas, cuando sigue adelante con el etnocidio por su #OroDeSangre #12Oct
