The mobilization started at the Bellas Artes sector in Caracas and ended at Miraflores Palace, the Venezuelan government headquarters.

Venezuelan youth nationwide showed their support for the base committees to elect 545 constituents, 364 territory representatives and 181 sector representatives.

Agencia Venezolana de Noticias reported that Luz Maria Escarra, a Venezuelan lawyer, said the objective of the youth, in relation to the implementation of the ANC, is peace. She added that the only way to achieve peace is through open dialogue.

"On behalf of our youth, we must maintain a peaceful country which remains sovereign and independent and the ANC is the only path that allows us to maintain that peace," Luz said.

"It's the path of dialogue."

Escarra also mentioned that the young constituents will stand in defense of national sovereignty, respect for patriotic symbols, social justice, as well as discuss issues that touch the youth and influence their personal, professional, work and student life.

Kennedy Morales, a student at Simon Rodriguez University, stressed the importance of young people to assume their role as the greatest legacy of Commander Hugo Chavez.

"The ANC,” he said, “summons the original power and the university sector is part of the original power. It will help to enhance the progress of the Bolivarian Revolution."

Meanwhile, Ana Cristina Bracho, another lawyer, believes that in the face of opposition aggression, the ANC is necessary because the people's welfare and peace, which is a fundamental right of all, is at stake.

"That is why President Nicolas Maduro has the legal base of this constituent. He has the historical argument to avoid conflict,” she said.
