«We are going to protect the people, to defend the people,» expressed the National President from Miraflores Palace in Caracas, during a video conference with the country’s productive sectors.

In this sense, he affirmed that, with the work being done by the people and the workers of the countryside, «are being built the deep foundations of a revolution».

«We are building the deep foundations of a Revolution. In every step we take, in building people’s power, in turning people’s power into the great productive force of the country. We are laying the foundations for a great economic and social revolution, and they should feel part of something big that transcends their own conuco (small farm), state», stressed the Venezuelan leader.

On several occasions, President Nicolás Maduro affirmed the importance of working the land and the countryside, in order to overcome the economic situation the country is going through as a result of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
