Sancti Spiritus workers and local people in general will have the opportunity to show their support towards the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela from April 1st on, when signature-gathering areas will be opened in major working centers and educational institutions.
This was informed to Escambray by the representatives of several organizations which take part in the campaign. They explained that people will be requested to sign and to write their ID number next to their signature, which will be allowed only once.
The signature collection campaign will be extended here until April 7th, as part of an international movement running under the slogan “Obama, deroga el decreto ya”, by which over five million signatures have been already collected.
This support movement was generated by an executive order issued by Washington last March 9th, when President Barack Obama stated that Venezuela was a threat for the national security of his country.
President Nicolas Maduro’s reply was both quick and overwhelming, and has been supported by many countries from all continents. It’s been also backed by international organizations like Unasur, ALBA, G-77+China, and CELAC.
