World Social Forum in Caracas
23 Feb 2006
President Hugo Chavez welcomed thousands of social activists at the Poliedro-Stadium in Caracas, Venezuela on January 27, 2006
In a long and passionate speech, the popular president of Venezuela described the historic facts of the struggles between imperialist capitalism and democratic socialism.

His chronological review described the eighteenth century’s liberating battles of Simon Jose Antonio de la Santisima Trinidad Bolivar; the sacrificial battles of the twentieth century highlighted by the heroic symbol of those times: Ernesto Che Guevara; and the present twenty-first century’s electoral achievements of several Latin-American republics.

Chavez scorned the United States for their hypocritical stance on terrorism while sponsoring terrorism themselves, and angrily demanded that the U.S. stops the criminal occupation and genocide in Iraq immediately.

The classic Marxist phrase: "Socialism or Death" was allegedly repeated by Rosa Luxemburg, Fidel Castro, and this time with unequivocal determination by Hugo Chavez.

Furthermore, he made it clear that the people of the United States are necessary and indispensable to a world socialist revolution. “We are counting with you”, he said optimistically.

Finally, he urged all social minded people to unite in a socialist revolution warning us that, according to many scientists and political futurists, if we don't, our environment and our species might be extinct in this century.

Not only for Bush or for that matter to all his predecessors, their economic imperialism and military power are so important to police the world and rob all resources to keep their country in the power.. the people of America are so concerned of their security and interested in their Government to keep them happy that they are not interested in the human rights violations that their Government and leaders are statement may not be exactly true.. but the fact is that unless the US citizens are aware of what they do build a new world, Bushes will grow... to ruin Iraq, Iran..India
