The President of the Republic, Juan Guaidó, reiterated his complaint about the ecocide carried out by the regime of Nicolás Maduro in the state of Amazonas.
The president reminded that after the dictatorship broke the Venezuelan oil industry, and it seeks to destroy the country’s mining industry to get rich.
“The dictatorship destroyed and looted the oil industry, now the Amazon, displacing indigenous communities and allowing terrorism to finance their mansions and luxury vehicles,” Guaidó said Monday through his personal Twitter account.
The also President of the National Assembly (NA), insisted that the solution to prevent the ecocide from continuing to happen is the implementation of a National Emergency Government to rescue both the oil industry and the mining industry.
The exploitation of the Arco Minero is damaging 80% of Venezuela’s fresh water reserves. Illegal mining is generating an environmental “cancer”, said the NGO Provea.
On July 15th, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, denounced that in this area of the country criminal groups are in control of the territory, workers are being exploited and ecological damage of great proportions is taking place.
La dictadura destruyó y saqueó la industria petrolera, ahora el Amazonas, desplazando comunidades indígenas y permitiendo el terrorismo para financiar sus mansiones y vehículos de lujo.
Solo un Gobierno de Emergencia detendrá el ecocidio y rescatará la industria petrolera. https://t.co/a41oiDrk84
