They wanted to dye our Christmas with blood, we didn’t allow it and we had Christmas in peace, as a family, ”denounced the National President in simulcast on radio and television.

In this regard, he recalled the events on December 22, when military deserters stormed the 513 Infantry Border Battalion, located in the Gran Sabana, Bolivar state
