Manifest for Peace in Venezuela

The Venezuelan people, free and sovereign, took back the original power in their hands, electing massively representatives to the National Constituent Assembly.

More than eight million came to the ballots, despite boycotting and sabotaging made by undemocratic groups, in a process accompanied by international legal and political personalities who attested to fairness and transparency.

All cities, classes and sectors are present, with their delegates, in the creation of Venezuelan democracy.

The Constituent Assembly is the path to peace and normality, to resume the path of development and prosperity, to overcome an institutional crisis and build a program that will reunite the neighboring homeland.

Peacefully and democratically, millions of citizens said no to terrorist gangs, petty elites, coup plotters, and the interference of other governments.

Men and women of good, throughout the world, must celebrate this historical gesture of self-determination of Venezuela, repudiating as interventionist threats and adding to a great chain of solidarity.

In addition, in Brazil will be heard as voices that reject violence and sabotage against the legitimate government of President Nicolás Maduro.

What morality has a usurper like Michel Temer to speak in democracy, violating one’s own Constitution, and adopt institutions that offend Venezuelan independence?

Brazil cannot be considered an infamy of allied with governments that conspire against a publication and associate with factions dedicated to taking the power of assault, appealing to the chaos and the coercion.

We call on all Brazilians and Brazilians to defend democracy and self-determination of our Venezuelan brothers, their right to live in peace and to define their destiny.

We repudiate how blockade and aggression maneuvers are being plotted in the shadows of the Organization of American States (OAS), under the baton of the White House and with complicity by the coup government of our country.

We denounce the repulsive behavior of the media that manipulate information and run the truth to serve a plan of destabilization and isolation.

We declare our solidarity with the brave people of Bolivar. His struggle for peace is ours too.
