Venezuelans Take to the Streets of Caracas in Support of Maduro PDF Imprimir Correo
Caracas, Sep 1 (Prensa Latina) From the early hours today, thousands of Venezuelans have been gathering on the main streets of the capital, to express their support for the economic and pacifying management of the country headed by President Nicolas Maduro.


The demonstration is in response to the 'Toma de Caracas' protest summoned by the opposition, the coalition Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD). The opposition is calling for a recall referendum against the head of state to be held in 2016.

Yesterday, members and supporters of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) began a vigil in the Plaza Venezuela, where early this morning they spoke out against the interference of the Organization of American States (OEA, in Spanish) and the US administration in the internal affairs of the South American country.

We will work and fight for peace, but we must not react to provocations, said the first deputy president of the PSUV, Diosdado Cabello, in a speech to the attendees.

He announced that the Government would be alert to attempts to destabilize it because, 'we have arguments and reasons to accuse the right wing of hiding their intention of a coup behind the call for the march.' 

'The opposition have demanded the implementation of a recall referendum this year against Maduro, but they know that this is impossible because they have failed to meet the legal terms of the process and they do not want to admit,' he added.

During the demonstration, which was also attended by members of the Great Patriotic Pole, the word 'Peace' was lit in the Waraira Repano, a symbol of the rejection of the attempts to undermine Venezuela's stability and asphyxiate the people economically.

The vigil precedes the demonstration on Bolivar Avenue, where support for the social and economic policies developed in the nation since the arrival of the late Hugo Chavez (1954-2013) to Miraflores Palace (the seat of government) will be confirmed.

As a precaution, government authorities are regulating the use of Venezuelan airspace until September 5th, among other actions.
