The media campaign against Venezuela and fuelled by political aggressions or threats from representatives of the U.S. government is a manoeuvre that seeks to demoralize the Venezuelan and move forward with interventionist actions, explained writer Luis Brito Garcia on Saturday.
In a special interview in Venezolana de Televisión, Brito García explained that the digital networks and international media broadcast a series of lies about Venezuelans as a way for U.S. politicians to attack Venezuela.
“Whenever you are going to annihilate a victim you have to annihilate it intellectually. All lies against the people of Venezuela are based on that premise” of war, the writer said.
He warned that the manipulation of Venezuelan reality has an impact on the xenophobic acts that occur in some countries of the region against nationals.
He stressed that the Venezuelan population is characterized by values of solidarity, humanity, education, productivity, among others.
“We are one of the first countries to totally overcome illiteracy in Latin America, one in three Venezuelans is studying and one in nine in higher education,” he said, referring to the fraternal treatment immigrants receive in Venezuela.
“In the 1950s, when we were a nation of 6 million inhabitants, we received more than 800,000 immigrants and there was not a single xenophobic episode,” he said, referring to the number of Colombians in the country.
“We currently have more than 5.6 million people from a neighbouring country whose government, not its people, has sometimes been hostile,” he said.
He denounced that the U.S. government has been able to use digital networks to attack politically with false news, espionage and other media tactics.
“The Venezuelan people are finally a people who want a future, they work for that future with their studies, they have great solidarity with the family and a great sense of solidarity with others, with their neighbours.
