President Maduro urges the creation of a National Peasant Movement

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, called on Thursday on the country’s peasant sector to create a national peasant movement with the capacity to fight and produce, one that meets the needs of the Venezuelan people in agrarian matters.

In a joint radio and television broadcast, the National Leader indicated that the first point for this movement to address will be the return of the lands of the projects delivered by the leader of the revolution, Hugo Chávez, back to the peasants “in an immediate manner. It is an order that I am giving, and nobody should disobey it”, he emphasized.

In this regard, he urged the Vice President of the Executive Republic, Delcy Rodriguez, and the president of the National Constituent Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, to make a work agenda that provides solutions to the problems posed by this sector, including the return of their lands.

“An agenda of concrete action, both in agrarian and productive policy, as well as in the fair, constitutional and legal distribution of lands in Venezuela”, he said.

The second point involves verifying the judicial cases in which this productive sector of the country is involved, a reason why he instructed Rodríguez and Cabello, in the company of the Attorney General of the Republic, Tarek William Saab, to evaluate those -within the framework of the Commission for Truth- “to resolve the issues of justice.”
