Committee of Victims of Guarimbas supports actions to move towards national reconciliation

The Committee of Victims of Guarimbas (riots) ratified on Thursday its support for the actions taken by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, to move towards national reconciliation, as is the case of the procedural benefits granted to 80 involved in acts of political violence between 2014 and 2018.

This was stated during the speech at the session of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) of Eilin García, member of this committee, for whom dialogue between all sectors of the country is fundamental.

“We support, support and trust deeply in the constitutional president of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro Moros, and in his firm and wise decision to move forward in a process that will consolidate peace, reunion and forgiveness in our country by granting the measures and benefits to those who used violence as a political tool”, he said.

He argued that politically Venezuelans may have points of disagreement, but also of encounter and, in that sense, referred to the importance of forgiveness.

“It is necessary, dear brothers, forgiveness and is our President, once, who sets an example and extends his hand and puts his heart at the service of reunion among brothers who are, brothers that we can have differences but talking, talking and recognizing ourselves we can move towards productive dialogue in a loving, respectful way”, he said.

Also in this session, Zoraida Bravo, mother of the captain of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) Ramzor Ernesto Bracho assassinated in 2014 during an opposition protest, exhorted the Venezuelans to support these actions promoted by the National Executive.

“I ask all people to support these measures of peace, dialogue in our country”, she said at the time she advocated for national peace.

For her part, Desiré Cabrera, another member of the Committee, thanked the ANC for accompanying this fundamental process to open the way to reconciliation and stressed that the process will continue.

“The Committee will continue with that: seeking justice because we want peace and reconciliation in the country. That’s what we are here for”, she said.
