U.S. antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan will open the World Social Forum in Caracas on Tuesday together with other political and cultural leaders from diverse nations with a mass action, organizers for the event said Sunday.
Sheehan, mother of a dead soldier in Iraq who achieved notoriety from heading various antiwar actions against the government of George W. Bush, will give a speech at a march that will kick off the World Social Forum en the Venezuelan capital, said dará Edgardo Lander, a member of the organizing committee of the event.
In the action for which the activist will assist, "she will give an antiimperialist tone, anti-war, and also exhalt life and counter war", the organizer explained in a press release.
The march that will initiate the World Social Forum in Caracas will begin on Tuesday in the afternoon from a nearby plaza to the Central University of Venezuela, to the south of Caracas, and end in the historic Paseo Los Próceres, neighboring Fort Tiuna, the main military base in the capital.
Los Próceres has historically been used for military marches in the capital of Venezuela.
Together with Sheehan, also will be political and cultural activists from "the most decisive centers" of the plant, like Afganistán, Colombia, Iraq, Palestine, so lik the United States, commented Lander.
This year the Forum will be held in three cities: Bamako (Mali), from the 19th to the 23rd of January, Caracas (Venezuela), from the 24th to the 29th, and Karachi (Pakistán), where it was postponed to the end of March due to the recent earthquakes that the nation has suffered.

**BARF ALERT** Cindy Sheehan will be right at home in this smelly hippie festival in the garbage-strewn streets of Caracas. Hugo Chavez will be there to hug her and any attempted photographs of such a spectacle will break the cameras.
Item is in Spanish but what's posted is my translation.
Anyone seen Soros lately?
Who is paying this twit's airfare???
Does this mean that if I ever get my 15 minutes of fame,
I have to go to Venezuela when it's over?
What an odd, cold way of phrasing that...
Ditto. 'Cause when all is said and done, "Follow the money."
Still have any doubts that our own USA kook leftists are aligning themselves with our enemies? These are dangerous traitors and treacherous to this nation. Oh yeh..incredibly dumb and blind too. They should be ex-communicated and US citizenship should be revoked. They don't deserve nor respect the freedom they have here.
Is this true?
This is so out there, it's surreal!
Truth is stranger than fiction - someone once said, boy were they right!
What an odd, cold way of phrasing that...
Posting is a translation.
This woman has made more money speaking at Communist forums (see the irony?) about her son's death than anyone in the world at any time in history.
Okay, that makes more sense (a soldier killed in Iraq).
They will be discussing social diseases such as "stupiditis".
The SON of world reknowned atheist Madeline Murray O'Hara IS A BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN. The SONS of world reknowned anti-semite, anti-american, communist, crackpot Cindy Sheehan ARE PRo-AMERICAN PATRIOTS.
I know the MSM will never understand simple logic.
Yep. How many here could take months off, do nothing but protest, fly to Hawaii, Venezuela, etc.?
Please tell me they'll keep her.
Remember that Code Pink, ANSWER, UFPJ, World Can't Wait, et all are paying Sheehan to do this!!!
She's going for the "smelly, hippie festival" called the Nobel Peace Prize. And no, I'm not sarc-tagging this one.
Arafat & Jimmy Carter both won the Nobel Peace Prize. It's about as prestigious as the New York Times.
Hugo, Cindy and the NYT ought to be together for this one. Barf. Festival of the idiots.
