Festive Left Friday Blogging: Chavecito in Brazil

Hugo Chavez, medalist!

Score one more award for Chavecito: the Tiradentes Medal.

When he wasn’t busy receiving awards for humanitarian service to the cause of democracy, or in a tete-a-tete with his good friend Lula…

Chavecito and Lula chatting

…or bestowing a little tenderness on local youngsters…

Chavecito kisses a boy in Brazil

…Chavecito had this to say about a local right-wing paper that bad-mouthed him:

“O Globo, O, O, O…”

O, what a hoot!

    First time I’ve been here. Followed this link from Sabina Becker’s post on Powers&Morrison. I would really like to learn what is happening with Chavez in Venezuela.
    I cheer every time he flips the bird at Bush. However, I can’t tell if what’s being reported is bs or truth.
    I do speak Spanish and would love to be directed to some great news sites and forums.

    Hey, welcome…pull up a chair!
    I find that http://www.aporrea.org is a good site for news on Venezuela, lots of commentary there too. There are also some nice blogs: http://carlchucho.blogspot.com and http://lubrio.blogspot.com are my faves. There’s also http://www.losblogueros.net which is a good site for Spanish-language news from all over the world.
    For good stuff in English, there’s http://oilwars.blogspot.com and http://www.venezuelanalysis.com (which also has links to other good news sites.)
    I wouldn’t put too much faith in any mainstream US or Venezuelan site, though–they are run by wingnuts and smell like it, too. (You can usually tell when they start making ominous comparisons of Chavez to Castro; it’s a dead giveaway.)
    Anyhow, I hope this helps!
