«We will take over Caracas, and if the thing is in Caracas here they will find us», with these words the president of the National Constituent Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, responded to the rumors of a coup d’etat, stoked by the opposition, in the face of the swearing-in ceremony of Nicolás Maduro, on January 10, 2019, for his second presidential term.
He called for the takeover of the country’s capital, days before the inauguration, for which he called for the mobilization of the movement of peasants, women, students, senior citizens and workers, all in defense of the Homeland:
«We want that, on the 10th, as established in the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Brother Nicolás Maduro will be sworn in peace as President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela», he reiterated.
During a special session of the ANC, from the Federal Legislative Palace, Cabello sharply agreed that «nothing and nobody is going to prevent that, on January 10, Nicolás Maduro is sworn in by our people in a great national day, here in Caracas, as president for the 2019-2025 term».
He asked the revolutionary forces to remain united under any circumstances: «If everyone goes by their own side, they will devour us, we will be an easy prey, they will look for those who allow to massage their own ego, those who have particular projects, to put cameras and microphones on them, seeking to divide the revolutionary forces. Let’s not allow that to happen, let’s not do that to the people, nor to Chávez».
The President of the ANC invited the authorities of those countries that have threatened to withdraw their diplomatic representations to materialize their threats. «Take advantage of December and leave, pick up your things. We have not had any kind of relationship for a long time with those loudmouths that speak around the world. Take all your things, it does not matter, we would be interested, in any case, in a relationship with the peoples».
