Venezuela's National Assembly Deputy Edgar Zambrano, the leader of the parliamentary fraction of opposition party Acción Democrática (AD), has held a meeting with Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela Monsignor Pietro Parolin as part of the number of meetings and talks in favor of the freedom of prisoners and the return of people involuntarily living in exile.
The deputy, who currently coordinates the team in charge of dealing with this issue, expressed his satisfaction at the outcome of the meeting with the Apostolic Nuncio, who pledged to pray for the success of the initiative aimed at the reconciliation of Venezuelans. "The Nuncio expressed being delighted by this humanitarian action and informed us that he will be spiritually supporting its progress by praying for its success," he remarked.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
