In its weekly meeting, the opposition Unified Democratic Panel (MUD) resolved to hold a magnificent event for national unity and democracy in order to commemorate one of the most significant anniversaries in Venezuela's democratic history, January 23.

The event will rely on the reassertion of democratic principles that inspired the Venezuelan main characters to lead this important event, as well as the confirmation of the MUD commitment to rescue such principles.

"Every Venezuelan committed to democratic principles, advocacy of lawfulness, the fight for a better quality of life and against the attempt of those who have taken office with intent to consolidate an authoritarian, misappropriating regime, are kindly invited to this event," they remarked.

Upon this decision, the MUD members ratified their commitment to peace. They claimed to have enough evidence about the government purpose to take the streets of the capital city in order to fuel violent acts and put the blame on dissenters.

MUD members noted that the spirit of January 23 is that of national unity. "In 1958 (when the dictatorship of General Marcos Pérez Jiménez was toppled), we recovered freedom and commenced the construction of the democracy."
