MCM: “Venezuelans will not accept others negotiating our freedom”
Democratic opposition presidential candidate Maria Corina Machado said on Monday that Venezuelans have shown that they will not give up their desire for political change, and that they will not accept anyone else deciding their freedom.
“We Venezuelans will not accept anything less than a life in complete freedom. “We will not lower our heads and will not accept that others negotiate our freedom or our well-being,” he expressed during the 2024 Presidential Forum: Unity and Vote, which brought together the leaders of Primero Justicia. “This civil power, which was demonstrated on October 22, has a momentum that has shaken many consciences, and from here we must grow.”
VPI Broadcast of the meeting in which MCM highlighted that although political parties are essential to achieving political change, it is time to understand that they must ensure that it is the massively pluralistic Venezuelan citizenry that “turns this into an unstoppable citizenship movement.”
He stressed that the primaries that took place on October 22 left a huge lesson for the political leadership: “We must not underestimate the people, we must trust them, and one is amazed at what Venezuelan society is able to do, despite all the obstacles that have been Exist, and everything.” The forces that opposed (…) said that the matter was not impossible, and it was not easy, there were major tests, and there was no media, and I did not attend a single interview on national television, nor on large radio circuits, nor interviews myself, but despite All this, we have achieved with enthusiasm and passion that the community takes ownership because it is theirs.
He appreciated the opportunity to express himself at the AKP Leaders Forum, admitting that this would have seemed impossible to him a few months ago.
“This is a great opportunity. Maybe a few months ago, I would have imagined that this was not possible, but things have changed for the better. They have really changed. I think this is a great message and for that, I am very grateful that we are giving it. It is a message to the Venezuelans.” He added, “From P.J. , from its women, I hope very much that we have experienced losses, failures and fallen, but the greatest success is knowing how to rise stronger.” “We are a better society and a better people after the tests of all this difficult process that has been imposed on us.”
