Draft Law against Fascism to be presented at Venezuelan Parliament

Caracas, Apr 2 (Prensa Latina) Executive Vice President Delcy Rodríguez will present before the National Assembly the draft Law against Fascism, Neofascism and Similar Expressions, which was proposed by President Nicolás Maduro.

The first vice president of the United Socialist Party Diosdado Cabello stated on Monday to the press that the deputies will approve the Law immediately.

At the end of last March, Rodríguez announced the creation of a State High Commission against Fascism and Neofascism in another attempt by the authorities to control violence.

The vice president indicated the creation of the body, by order of the head of state, who requested to submit shortly before Parliament a “Bill against fascism and all neo-fascist expression in the exercise of politics and national life” in attention to the acts of violence in the Bolivarian Republic in the years 2014, 2015 and 2017, and to avoid “serious consequences” for the country’s economy, sovereignty and territorial integrity, which were compromised by extremist factors that took over the National Assembly in 2015 to strip Venezuela of its resources and create internal destabilization.

Rodríguez pointed out that the bill is also being promoted in consideration of the international situation, whose peace and stability “are threatened by neo-fascist expressions” festering in power centers serving the global north.

The functionary stated that the Government decided to promote the legal instrument under the premise that “neither fascism nor neo-Nazism will pass in Venezuela.”
