In Bolivia, Sean Penn Speaks at Chavez Vigil

by Eliana Johnson

Hugo Chavez is recovering in Cuba after a fourth surgery to treat his cancer. On Tuesday, Sean Penn showed up in La Paz, Bolivia to speak at a vigil held in Chavez’s honor. Wearing a Venezuelan flag jacket, Penn called Chavez “one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet” and wished him “love and gratitude.” He concluded with a puzzling tribute, saying, “It is only possible to be so inspiring as he is, as a two way street.”
