In this photo released by Venezuela’s Miraflores Press, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez embraces visiting U.S. peace activist Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, during his national broadcast ‘Hello President’ in Caracas, Venezuela, Sunday, Jan. 29, 2006. Chavez said Sheehan told him that ‘soon, in Holy Week, she is going to put up her tent again in front of Mr. Danger’s ranch,’ referring to U.S. President George W. Bush. Sheehan gained international notoriety last year when she set up a protest camp near Bush’s Texas ranch.
ASSociated Press: Peace activist Cindy Sheehan plans new protest at Bush’s ranch
Cindy Sheehan, who gained international fame when she camped outside President Bush’s ranch in an anti-war protest, plans to pitch her tent again, Venezuela’s president said Sunday as he urged activists worldwide to help bring down â€œthe U.S. empire.â€
Hugo Chavez, an arm around Sheehan’s shoulders, told a group of activists that she had told him â€œshe is going to put up her tent again in front of Mr. Danger’s ranchâ€ in April.
In some of his strongest recent comments aimed at Washington, Chavez condemned the Bush administration and said his audience should work toward ending U.S. dominance.
“Enough already with the imperialist aggression!” Chavez said, listing countries from Panama to Iraq where the U.S. military has intervened. “Down with the U.S. empire! It must be said, in the entire world: Down with the empire!”
This reminds Flap of the Old Socialist/Communist BLOVIATING at George Galloway events.
Chavez said Sheehan had invited him to join her April protest at Bush’s Texas ranch.
“Maybe I’ll put up my tent also,” Chavez said, to applause from an audience invited to his weekly broadcast on the final day of the World Social Forum, an annual gathering of anti-war and anti-globalization activists.
LEFTIE MORONS think alike!
