F4 ANNIVERSARY | The causes of the revolt are still present

Rebels of F4: The situation of Venezuela is worse than in 1992

"Today the conditions are worse than those at the moment of the uprising, because corruption, insecurity, and high cost of living are now accompanied by widespread uneasiness among people," claimed Yoel Acosta Chirinos, the Lieutenant Colonel in charge of the "José Leonardo Chirino" 421st Battalion back in 1992

On February 4, 1992, Lieutenant Colonel Yoel Acosta Chirinos led the "José Leonardo Chirino" 421st Battalion, which rebelled against then Venezuelan President Carlos Andrés Pérez. Today, 22 years later, Acosta is not among the officers commemorating the anniversary of the revolt.

"Today the conditions are worse than those existing at the moment of the uprising, because corruption, insecurity, and high cost of living are now accompanied by widespread uneasiness among people," he said.

Acosta noted that February 4 is the result of the civil revolts of February 27-28, 1989 in Caracas. The reasons leading to such rebellion are widely known, yet they have not been solved, he added.

Further, Acosta highlighted the ideological differences between the Bolivarian project and what the government is actually doing. "Bolivarian socialism does not exist. One thing is socialism and another thing is Bolivarianism. Bolívar was a humanist not a socialist.

He voiced disagreement with President Nicolás Maduro's request for an "Enabling Law to fight corruption. Mister, we did include the Moral Branch in the Bolivarian Constitution to fight against corruption! Have we made use of the Republican Moral Council? No. Where are the comptroller, the attorney general, and the ombudsperson?" Acosta questioned.
