It has become increasingly evident that the struggle between the Pemon people and the Maduro regime during the month of February 2019 in Santa Elena de Uairén and the Venezuelan-Brazilian border was not really about stopping humanitarian aid from entering Venezuela, but rather an excuse for the regime’s (carried out by the US and Canada sanctioned Chavista governor of Bolivar State, Justo Noguera Pietri) latest power grab to control the Pemon ancestral lands, the real objective being the illegal gold mines in that region.
The Pemón People of La Gran Sabana, Bolivar State, Venezuela have been on the forefront of the struggle to allow the entry of humanitarian aid. In this remote Southern region of Venezuela, that borders with Brazil, where the indigenous peoples of Venezuela are amongst the most vulnerable and are suffering the consequences of the collapse of health, education, nutrition and security of the regime of Nicolas Maduro, Emilio Gonzalez, mayor of Santa Elena de Uairen (on the Venezuelan-Brazilian border) told Reuters that the Pemon people were unarmed but determined to let in humanitarian aid from Brazil.
