Wanna get pumped up by some revolutionary speeches? Telesur has a conucopia of videos this evening
Hi folks: I dropped in on Telesur TV a few minutes ago and found some great videos -- both Morales and Chavez kick butt in their International Workers Day speeches. Plus there is a video of Jimmy Carter's visit to Bolivia. And another of Rafael Correa talking about the election. of course all are in spanish except for the one with Carter in it.

Go to the URL below and on the right you will see "videos." A particular one may be featured but go down a bit further and on the right you will see a button to scroll through all of them.

2. Rabs, the video of Morales speech on May 1 includes the statements
about the Human Rights Foundation that you mentioned earlier in the day.

4. Thanks, just watched it ,



at about 8 minutes 30 seconds into the video. He flat says the HRF in Bolivia is linked to the separatists. No mincing of words there. HRF is going to be scrambling to cover their butts.

What struck me is the open-air speech in front of the Palacio Quemado. No protection whatsoever from possible snipers in nearby building, although presume they were swept first by security agents. Still ...

Cool faces in the crowd; the women and their derby hats. Noted some miners in hardhats. I once saw a miner's protest against an unpopular government years ago where the miners were walking with dynamite sticks in one hand and lighted cigarettes in the other. Tough guys.

5. Yeah, I was concerned about the open area where he was
giving his speech. And then the fireworks went off before he had finished the speech and a cold chill went down my spine.
