    Continue to take this existentialist Venezuelan illegal and imperialistic threat to the indivisible and unimpeachable Guyanese territorial integrity to the Councils of the world to mobilise world opinion and incremental diplomatic support for the international law approach to a resolution of this albatross problem of Guyana via the ICJ and let the flowers of the Guyanese hinterland bloom again and bring peace and unending prosperity to the Guyanese people who live in peace and harmony with their neigbours to whom they are always willing to share this boon bequeathed by the Divine in His infinite wisdom and sense of equitable and distributive justice.
    Try to get the UNGA to take note of this illegal referendum being foisted on the people of Venezuela at a time when it is being used to commandeer political support domestically but fear and trembling in the minds of those being threatened with piracy and outright invasion and annexation of the commanding heights of the Guyanese economy and maritime space extending to 350 miles into the Atlantic.
    Recite this mantra for all to understand and appreciate this bold step to stop the hands of progress and development of the Guyanese polity and let it unite the people threatened to resist this planned appropriation with every muscle and fibre in their being as one people preparing to defend their homeland from Spanish speaking invaders and marauders.
