Hundreds of people participate in Miami in a humanitarian event in favor of Venezuela

The Bayfront Park in Miami (USA) is the scene this Saturday of the free concert "Abajo cadenas", an event to gather humanitarian aid in favor of Venezuela and in which the Venezuelans Chyno Miranda and Frank Quintero participate, among other artists.

During the 6-hour day, medications, vitamins, non-perishable food, formula for children, water purification tablets, orthopedic supplies, as well as first aid and personal hygiene items will be received.

Marjorie Carollo, one of the organizers of the event, told local media that after the blackouts in the Latin American country there is more urgent humanitarian aid, and therefore the event was raised after a conversation with her husband, the commissioner of the city of Miami Joe Carollo.

"We are united in this cause and we have to continue forcing the exit of the regime," the organizer told Diario de las Américas, one of the deans of the press in Spanish in Miami, who said that on this occasion the organizations that will send the help is not getting clothes or shoes.

To facilitate access to the event, parking has been coordinated with the city at reduced prices in the surroundings, as well as a "self-service" ("drive thru") for those who are going to deliver large and heavy donations.

The participation of Carlos Vecchio, diplomatic representative in the United States of the interim president of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, as well as his counterpart in Canada, Orlando Viera Blanco, is also expected.

"For me it is a duty, my family and I owe a lot to Venezuela, it was the country that gave us shelter," acknowledged the Cuban newspaper Lena Burke, one of the artists who has achieved a space in her agenda to be part of this initiative.

"Music makes people want to donate a 'pesito', that's what we try to do," added the singer, who confessed to Venezuela by adoption.

Amaury Gutiérrez, Willy Chirinos, Víctor Drija and the brothers Santiago and Luigi Castillo will be other artists who will go on stage at the Bayfront Park, overlooking the Bay of Biscay.

The concert takes place the same day that two months have passed since the head of the Parliament of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, recognized as president in charge of fifty countries, was awarded the powers of the Executive before the "usurpation" that, considers, makes Maduro of the Presidency.

"I ask for your presence in the streets and an intangible: trust, not Juan Guaidó, confidence in you (…) in what we will achieve," said the opposition Saturday at a rally with thousands of supporters in the state of Anzoategui (northeast of Venezuela).
