V anniversary of the passing of Commander Hugo Chavez commemorated in Saint Lucia

(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – On Monday March 5th, the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Saint Lucia paid a fraternal tribute to Commander Hugo Chavez Frias, on the fifth anniversary of his passing.

On this occasion, a Eucharistic celebration was offered by Monsignor Patrick Anthony, in homage to the late leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chavez, in the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, Coubaril, Castries.

Below are the words of the Venezuelan Ambassador Leiff Escalona:

“Today 5th of March 2018, marks five years of the passing of our Commander Hugo Chavez, Son of Latin America and the Caribbean. Known to the world as the tireless fighter for Independence, sovereignty and unity of our Great Land.

Chavez personified great hope and gave way to the popular demand for social transformation.

His leadership was characterized by his steady fight against poverty, in which he transformed national institutions, guaranteed public policies that would benefit the majority, recognized rights of the disabled, children and young people, women, the elderly, the indigenous and people of all genres, breaking down the barriers of racism and classism.

Hugo Chavez was passionate about social projects, he returned hope to the Venezuelan people, returning our pride, we recovered Bolivar, our national hero… and today, thanks to his daily orientations and teachings, we consider ourselves Bolivarian and Chavistas.

We give thanks to God for giving us a man like Chavez, who dignified the lives of Venezuelans, and as such, we continue his legacy and plan for the development of our country.

I would like to thank (Her Excellency, His Excellency, Dr. Anthony, Mayor Francis, Mr. Phillip Jn. Pierre) and all you special invited guess, for being here with us, commemorating this special day for us Venezuelans.”

  1. Viva Hugo . If only you had listen to the great Fidel when he warned you about that speech you gave at the UN denouncing Butch that they would come after you and kill you and so they succeeded and now it all falling apart. You tried to help the Caribbean but many were and still are cowards about been associated with ALBA they know themselves. You shared the profits from oil with your people they hated that. They hated Cisco for giving free heating oil to poor people right on their on their own turf in the states with all their riches they could not and wont do even today. I salute Hugo Chavez along with the great Fidel were great leaders and fighters.
