The National Vice President of Copei, Rogelio Díaz, positively valued the meeting held this Saturday by the president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, and diverse political leaders, which aimed to continue articulating pressure efforts against Maduro’s dictatorship and optimizing the organization of the struggle to regain democracy.
“We met with popular leaders from five parishes in Caracas: La Candelaria, San Bernardino, Altagracia, San José and Recreo, in a meeting where these leaders had the opportunity, not only to listen to the message of the president in charge Juan Guaidó, but also in addition to raise their doubts, concerns, proposals and have a working conversation about what is the route to follow for this 2021,” said the political leader.
Díaz said that the meeting served to articulate more effective actions in all sectors of the community for the future. “Meeting motivates us, the people who are leaders in their communities, their communal councils, their neighborhood associations. Those who really have to promote this process of change from the grassroots, they who are the true heroes of this process because they are the ones who confront the ‘colectivos’ (government armed gangs), and all those repressive bodies of the regime, and still they continue to fight with conviction.”
The leader of the christian democratic party added that the communal leaders’ commitment renews the belief of fighting for a change, “because if those popular leaders will not surrender and they have told us that they will remain firm until they achieve freedom. Without a doubt it is a extraordinary news that fills us with hope, optimism and gives us the certainty that this nightmare is going to end and that we are all going to be protagonists in the reconstruction of Venezuela after we can recover democracy through a process of free, fair and verifiable elections.”
In conclusion, Díaz specified, “this meeting gave us the possibility of working together from the president in charge to the true heroes of this process, which are the community leaders.”
