CFK: ‘Chávez, like Néstor, is guarded by the people’
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner took part today in a mass organized at Barracas Villa 21 in homage to former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, one year after his death.
“Chávez, like Néstor, is guarded by the people”, said Fernández to the press after leaving the ceremony.
The President highlighted that Chávez tomb is placed “at the foot of the mountains in Caracas, surrounded by working class neighborhoods”.
“It’s the Venezuelan people that guard his body”, she added.
President Fernández was accompanied by Social Development Minister Alicia Kirchner, head of SEDRONAR Juan Carlos Molina and Venezuela’s ambassador in Buenos Aires, Carlos Martínez Mendoza.
