Author and attorney Eva Golinger to speak on U.S. intervention against Venezuela
CHICAGO - Author and attorney Eva Golinger will speak about U.S. attempts to remove Venezuela's democratically elected President Hugo Chavez from power, Saturday, June 25, at the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference in Chicago.
Golinger will speak at the program “Destabilization, Disinformation, and Libraries,” sponsored by the Social Responsibilities Round Table of ALA and by the Progressive Librarians Guild. The program also will feature a presentation on libraries under the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile; and librarian Ann Sparanese will discuss what librarians can do about U.S. destabilization and disinformation programs.
Eva Golinger is a Venezuelan-American attorney who specializes in international law, human rights, and immigration. She is also author of “ The Chavez Code: Cracking U.S. Intervention in Venezuela” ( Ocean Press, 2005), a groundbreaking book which contains documentary evidence of U.S. participation in the failed April 2002 coup and other destabilization attempts. Greg Palast, author of the New York Times bestseller “ The Best Democracy Money Can Buy ,” has described “ The Chavez Code” as “well written, with solid evidence, this is the political survival guide to the land of the next oil war.”
The program will be held at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers, Sheraton Ballroom I, 1:30-3:30 p.m. For more information about the program, to request press access, or to arrange an interview with Eva Golinger, please contact Tom Twiss, firstname.lastname@example.org, (412) 648-7730.
