Conference Room One of the Rómulo Gallegos Latin American Studies Center, welcomed the intellectuals forum "Facing Capitalism", organized by the Ministry of People's Power for Culture.

The activity was divided on three core themes: "Culture and Revolution", "The people against consumption," "The Counter-Revolution and the Media."

On the latter point, the Venezuelan writer Luis Britto Garcia said: "I am extremely satisfied, because it has come a foreign delegation -that has been mentioned a lot- with the sole and exclusive purpose of showing that in Venezuela there is absolute freedom of expression."

"In Venezuela you can come from any country on earth to say anything that may occur against the Government, with the result that it will be completely spread by all the media," said Britto Garcia.

To the forum attended as panelists, international guests such as Winston skeins of Peru, Sergio Trabuco of Chile, Abel Prieto of Cuba, besides the Venezuelans, Earle Herrera, Vladimir Acosta, Eduardo Saman, among others.

For his part, the Mexican Fernando Buen Abad, congratulated the tenth anniversary of the program "Alo Presidente" and publicly confessed to being a consistent follower of the space, which he described as a prototype of communication that marked a milestone in communication within Latin America.

Finally, he stated that there is a strong need to evaluate all media that take sides politically, since their fundamental labor is to do it for the whole society.
