Hugo Chávez Quote
When imperialism feels weak, it resorts to brute force. The attacks on Venezuela are a sign of weakness, ideological weakness. Nowadays almost nobody defends neoliberalism. Up until three years ago, just Fidel [Castro] and I raised those criticisms at Presidential meetings. We felt lonely, as if we infiltrated those meetings.
Hugo Chávez during his closing speech at the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil. January 31, 2005.
