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.

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.

"mother of a dead soldier in Iraq"

What an odd, cold way of phrasing that...

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!

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.

"un soldado muerto en Irak "

Okay, that makes more sense (a soldier killed in Iraq).

As the water swirls around the bowl it seems that all the leftie pieces of dreck head to the same place. This guy Chavez must be a $hit magnet.

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.

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.

Code Pink is taking some "Revolutionary Tourists" to this event. They are part of the network that facilitates Sheehan, so I'm sure they have a hand in this too.

This reminds me of the Jewish saying:

To paraphrase that old 1960's peace poster:

What if U.S. Activist Cindy Sheehan Opened A World Social Forum In Caracas.........And Nobody Came?
