'Bringing Light Into Darkness: Monday KOOP News & Analysis'

It is time for my apprencticeship again. Tonight, I will sit in with Pedro and watch and listen as he interviews. I strongly advice you to listen as unfortunately at this point 'we' do not have any transcripts yet. I will work with Pedro to start making a transcript of some his interviews and put it on his own (future)blog. Until then, reserve this hour for some interesting dialogue.

Please join us for Monday's show that shall focus on the content of both President Hugo Chavez and President George Bush's speechs to the UN Genreal Assembly last week. As the emotions recede following the fiery (literally) words of Hugo Chavez UN speech, it is important to examine the charges that both sides are alleging about each other. We will examine the words and recent critiques being made in each camp in hopes of 'Bringing Light' to the legitimacy or illegitimacy of the assumptions and claims that underlie their arguments.

Our special guest will be the honorable Mr. Jose Pertierra, Attorney for the Government of Venezuela. Mr. Pertierra is an esteemed Immigration Attorney practicing in Washington D.C. Jose is a graduate of George Washington University Law School and has a Masters Degree in Philosophy from Georgetown University. He is a past recipient of the prestigious Human Rights Award from the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA) for his work on behalf of victims of human rights abuse in Guatemala. He has also received AILA’s President’s Commendation for excellence in advocacy work on behalf of immigrants in the United States.

I invite you to please tune in with us as Mr Pertierra helps us bring light into the darkness of the history and reality in Venezuela and its efforts to find an alternative path to the neoliberal free market model that we often hear described as synomous with 'democracy'. to another country. You may go or to access the radio link at KOOP 91.7 FM online.

Interesting topic. Chavez is fascinating. His will to help Venezuela's poor is impressing, yet his dictator style leadership and anti- Americanism has gone too far.
When I've been to Peru, Chavez was always spoken about. The candidate that lost the elections there, Ollanta Humala was considered a strong friend of his. Chavez was very present in the Peruvian elections.
Anyway, I'll try to stay tuned, although it's after my bedtime (2:00 AM).
