Evo Morales, Maradona travel together to American "anti-summit"
font size    

Bolivian presidential candidate Evo Morales, Argentine soccer idol Diego Maradona, and Cuban singer and composer Silvio Rodriguez will travel together to take part in the 3rd Peoples' Summit, best known as the American "anti-summit".

Morales, Maradona and Rodriguez are part of a group of participants of the Peoples' Summit that will travel aboard the train dubbed "Alba Express" from the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata, 400 kilometers southeast from the capital.

The tourist resort of Mar del Plata will be the venue of the 4th Summit of the Americas and will gather the leaders of all the countries of the Western Hemisphere, save Cuba, whereas the Peoples' Summit will summon American activists who oppose neoliberalism.

In press reports from Bolivia, spokespersons of opposition party Movement to Socialism (MAS), which postulated representative Morales to run for Office, said Argentine singer-songwriter Leon Giecco and Argentine lawmaker Miguel Bonasso also comprise the group, together with a large group of athletes.

The whole group arriving in Mar del Plata aboard Alba Express is also scheduled to go to World Cup Stadium of that city where Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will speak to the crowd.

Then they will join the "peoples' march" summoned to repudiate the presence of US President George W. Bush in Argentine territory.
