Caracas, Oct 1 (Prensa Latina) Despite the United States’ efforts to isolate and demonize Venezuela, the Bolivarian Government has made great achievements.
The implementation of a strategy both inside and outside the country has allowed the Venezuelan government to reverse some of the most complex situations working against the nation’s peace and stability.
Domestically, two major events marked the Venezuela’s political life in September: the #NoMoreTrump international campaign, and the agreement reached between opposition sectors and the government to set up a National Negotiating Table, amid acute tensions between the parties, seasoned with foreign threats.
After US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that, among other measures, authorized the freezing of assets owned by the Bolivarian State abroad, thus tightening the blockade against the country, thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets to condemn those actions.
From August 10 to September 10, improvised tables were set in squares and parks, where more than 13 million people signed a document condemning the US measures, which was later delivered to the United Nations as an expression of the people’s stance regarding Washington’s coercive and unilateral sanctions.
Political organizations, social movements, students and workers in the country and abroad joined the protests and reaffirmed the civil-military union, amid attacks and threats of aggressions by Colombia and the United States.
Meanwhile, extreme sectors of the Venezuelan opposition, represented by Juan Guido and his followers, were discredited by constant denunciations of their links to Colombian narco-paramilitary groups, as well as other corruption scandals and their submission to the White House.
This faction was ultimately divided and isolated, after Avanzada Progresista, Soluciones para Venezuela, Cambiemos, MAS and Esperanza por el Cambio joined the National Negotiating Table for Peace, to find a political solution in defense of Venezuela’s sovereignty and according to the Constitution.
The negotiations allowed the incorporation of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) into the National Assembly, recognized the legitimate rights over Essequibo region as established in the Geneva Agreement, and four other items that allowed the setting up of eight complementary working commissions.
