Today’s Video: On the Pitch

We anticipate publishing several posts over the weekend in order to make up for the lack of articles over the past few days.  Among the many topics we hope to discuss are the speeches by several Latin American and Caribbean leaders at the U.N. General Assembly.

As part of his remarks at the U.N. yesterday Bolivian president Evo Morales called on Chile to grant Bolivia access to the sea and critiqued the U.S. embargo on Cuba. Morales also took part in a soccer match to raise awareness of a U.N. program against domestic violence.

As seen in the below video via El Diario/La Prensa, the event included the participation of ex-Chilean president and current head of the UN Women program Michele Bachelet:

The game between Bolivian officials and U.N. staff was reportedly a clean match that thankfully avoided the rough stuff of a 2010 encounter Morales was involved in.
