Chavez and Zapatero in Brazil’s World Social Forum

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will participate in the World Social Forum in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre. On January 30, the eve of the conclusion of the event, Chavez will deliver an address in the Little Giant Gymnasium on relations between Latin America and the rest of the world.

The gymnasium, which holds up to 10 thousand people, will also be the venue of a speech on the 27th by Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who will talk about the war on hunger.


Before his address “The South-North of Peoples,” Chavez will visit the Landless Rural Workers’ Movement’s Lagoa do Junco settlement in Tapes, a city 130 kilometers away from Porto Alegre.


This is Chavez’s second appearance at the World Social Forum as head of state. The Venezuelan president attended the Forum in 2003, also in Porto Alegre.


This year the Spanish Prime Minister, José Luiz Zapatero, will also participate in the Forum.
