Caracas, Venezuela - A Venezuelan national march has been called for Saturday, February 22, 2014. President Nicolás Maduro has said, "No permit, No march." But the Venezuelan Republican Constitution allows the people of Venezuela to ignore him.
The Venezuelan Constitution states in Article 350., "The people of Venezuela, loyal to its Republican tradition, struggle for its independence, for peace and liberty, will not recognize any regime, legislation or authority in contrary to the values, principles, democratic guarantees, or impair human rights."
On Saturday, President Maduro will definitely hear the thundering sound of millions of pots and pans being banged as a protest to his oppressive state. Venezuelans have had enough of being oppressed and their rights infringed in contrary to their Constitutional inherent rights to express themselves and to demand change.
