by Francisco Perez, Venezuelan Head of Mission in SVG
The Constitutional President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Bolivarian Government and People, faithful to the thoughts of the Liberator Simón Bolívar and the Commander of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez, congratulates the Government and People of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, on the celebration of its 40th anniversary of Independence.
On this very important date, we highlight the resistance of the Vincentian national hero Joseph Chatoyer, indigenous leader of the Garifuna community, who bravely fought against empires in the Caribbean; we share brotherhood ties in favor of peace and the union of the peoples in the region; and we celebrate together with the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, who on October 27th, 1979 declared their victory before the yoke of the crown.
The times of struggle for freedom and emancipation have become the present and future of our peoples, which is why the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reiterates to Vincentians and their leader Ralph E Gonsalves, our full willingness to go forward hand in hand with the sister nation of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in order to maintain that insurgent legacy and continue along the long and beautiful path of integration and solidarity of the peoples.
We wish Saint Vincent and the Grenadines a future of peace, equality and prosperity for its people and in union with the Nations of Latin America and the Caribbean.
Long live Saint Vincent and the Grenadines!
Happy 40th anniversary of Independence!
