Jodie Evans, Medea Benjamin, and other representatives of CODEPINK are currently attending the World Social Forum in Venezuala. You can read their inspiring blogs, which include chronicles of their meeting with President Chavez, here.

Speaking of Venezuala, I was happy to find a CITGO gas station not too far from our house. CITGO gas comes from Venezuala--buying from them can help wean us from our dependence on Middle Eastern oil (and thus, hopefully, our implicit reasons for going to war there). I also like the fact that CITGO sponsors important social programs in Venezuala. Of course, I'd rather not use fossil fuels at all, but until alternative fuels like biodiesel are more readily available, I'm glad to fill my Civic Hybrid with Venezualan gas.
