This Saturday (October 19), in his party’s final campaign event before the Uruguayan elections, former President José “Pepe” Mujica saluted the fighters of Latin America and mentioned the “unjust imprisonment” of former President Lula. “We will fight for all the comrades in Latin America who have pledged to improve the lives of their people everywhere.
