Violence and political repression

“There are many willing to abandon Maduro and manage to make differences, and the challenge will be, once again, to produce the correct incentives in the face of massive and popular mobilization to achieve the transition in Venezuela,” he said.

In Venezuela, “the perpetrators of the violation of human rights are, precisely, the police or persecution forces of the dictatorship”he commented.

“We have denounced that the Maduro dictatorship uses and outsources violence, first in Venezuela, with the so-called urban paramilitaries of collective value, before, the Bolivarians, for example, which they used to repress protests, which they used to persecute dissidence. ”he highlighted.

In this context, “Everyone who was in exile, persecuted by the Maduro dictatorship, was reflected in the terrible, regrettable and painful crime of Lieutenant Ronald Ojeda, which was somehow noticed”he explained.
