Summary: This booklet is a compendium of selected short speeches of Simón Bolívar, most of which were addressed to Venezuelans. It also includes the speech delivered the day Bolívar resigned from the Presidency of Gran Colombia.
Historical Notes: Simón Bolívar is recognized as the “Libertador” because of his campaigns to liberate Ecuador, Perú, Bolivia, Venezuela and what is today Panama and Colombia. Bolivianos were those who supported Bolivar’s actions and his political ideas. They tended to be authoritarian and centralistic. The suspension of civil liberties and the use of military force were central elements of national policy and also characteristics of Bolívar’s followers. Davis, Robert 1993 Bolívar, Simón.
