Venezuelan Opposition to March for Recall from 7 Points in Caracas

CARACAS – The Venezuelan opposition will stage a huge march on Sept. 1 following specific rules for participation and departing from seven points around Caracas to demand that electoral authorities announce a date for the referendum being demanded by opponents to recall President Nicolas Maduro.

“There will be seven gathering points for the mobilization ... a demonstration with regulations, with rules, because the entity that is convening it is not simply a political organization, it’s the force that is called to lead a peaceful democratic transition,” said the executive secretary of the opposition MUD alliance, Jesus Torrealba, at a press conference.

He emphasized that the demonstration will be peaceful “because the people are going to guarantee it” and there will be a citizen regulatory body that will deal with those who attempt to create violence to explain to them the reason for the protest and to invite them to obey the rules set forth for it.

“We don’t want a single broken window, we don’t want a single stone in the air, the only thing we want is to see the public mobilized, demanding the central demand of this mobilization, which is the electoral timetable – that is, the 20 percent date, the recall referendum date and the date for regional elections,” he said.

In addition, Torrealba said that the destination of all these mobilizations will be the same and MUD will announce it on Aug. 30 along with the rules for participating in the demonstration.

Since April, MUD has been pushing for a constitutional process to remove Maduro, and now they need to collect about four million signatures, equivalent to 20 percent of the country’s registered voters, as the final phase prior to convening the referendum.
