FrIday, FEB 14, 2014 STUDENTS ANNOUNCEMENT: to the Venezuelan population in general; we inform you that the fight has been hard and very overwhelming. We’ve noticed how the security forces are desisting from their hostile and repressive attitude, a lot of them are actually sharing water, sodas and food with us, and they’re showing us with their words that they don’t want to hurt us, since they have family and friends who are also going through the same difficulties. However there’s still lots of them who are full of hate and violence, acting violently and viciously, even against women. We believe they’re Cuban guards wearing the uniform of the GNB (Bolivarian National Guard) because of the way they talk and how they express themselves. But we want to let you know; mom, dad, friend or whoever is reading this, that this fearless fight is also for you. We will not give up, even if it depends on our lives, because we are not afraid of losing it, Nicolás, without fear, Diosdado, we don’t have a single drop of fear, we are not afraid of your threats, your weapons or your irrational attitudes for one reason, we don’t negotiate our rights or our future with anybody. We will not keep on ‘knee on the ground’ like you say, but standing on our feet without fear Nicolás, we don’t care about your threats by the media, remember that with your words you try to buy the conscience and the ignorance of lots, but we will not sell ourselves for a scholarship, a Mercal or a house because we simply want to be productive, we want to feel useful to our homeland and acquire all of those things with the results of our hard work, we don’t want to feel like used fools manipulated by a regime of cheap conscience buyouts. The only ones who are afraid is you, because you don’t own the people anymore. And we took back the streets because weapons are useless when it comes to the dignity and courage of the people.
We ask you to please forward this message to those you can, and let the world know of the struggle we are waging today for Venezuela. #sosvenezuela #prayforvenezuela
