Venezuela’s worthy and brave people will never retreat, Maduro says

Caracas, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) President Nicolás Maduro affirmed today that the dignified and brave people of Venezuela will never go back to the darkness of colonial oppression.

In a message on his social network account X, the president recalled that 213 years ago ‘a people rebelled against the empire of Spain, sowing the seed of freedom’.

He pointed out that those were ‘the first heartbeats of the Republic that today we celebrate with deep pride, and that we are ready to defend regardless of the size of the threat’.

Long live Bolivarian, independent and sovereign Venezuela, he emphasized.

Also in another post he congratulated the glorious Bolivarian National Armed Forces ‘with infinite pride’ on their Day, of which he said ‘they carry in their genes the heroism, courage and indomitable spirit of the Liberators of America’.

‘Long live our heroes and heroines,’ he concluded.

In the Elliptic Hall of the Federal Legislative Palace, a protocol ceremony took place this Friday in the presence of civil and military authorities to open the urn containing the original Act of the Declaration of Independence, which was signed on a day like today in 1811.

The day began with the raising of the flag and the laying of a wreath on the sarcophagus that holds the mortal remains of the Liberator Simón Bolívar in the National Pantheon.

The Sector Vice-President for Citizen Security and Peace Remigio Ceballos highlighted that 213 years after that ‘imperishable milestone’, the courage and bravery of the Venezuelan people and its patriotic vanguard for independence was rarely seen more in force.
