Eva Golinger in Portland - Friday, May 6th
EVA GOLINGER, FOREIGN POLICY ADVISER TO THE VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT, ATTORNEY AND BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, TOURS U.S., DISCUSSES WIKILEAKS Wikileaks has added a new dimension to Eva Golinger's work investigating, analyzing and writing about US intervention and foreign policy toward Venezuela. The leaked reports and communiques show superpower arrogance and manipulation in Venezuela and all over the world.

Golinger has been uncovering US interventionist policies for several years. Shortly after the 2004 coup attempt, she obtained top-secret CIA documents demonstrating prior knowledge and complicity in the coup. Using the Freedom of Information Act, she has found proof of US government funding for groups opposed to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. And among the books she's written is "The Chavez Code: Cracking US Intervention in Venezuela." PCASC is excited to announce that Golinger will tour the United States May 6-13. She will talk about her latest discoveries, including how the US government financed opposition media in Venezuela and how, for years, the US State Department and aid agencies have tried to develop youth opposition in Cuba and Venezuela to provoke "regime change."

She will stop in New York, Chicago, Portland, Olympia, Wash., the Bay area, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.

In Portland she will speak at the First Unitarian Universalist Church in downtown Portland at 7pm on Friday, May 6th.

All proceed go to PCASC. Tickets are $10-$15 sliding scale, no one will be turned away.
