Book Discussion with Aviva Chomsky's new book, Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolutions, Violence, and the Roots of Migration
On Tuesday June 29, the Solidarity Collective will be hosting a discussion with Aviva Chomsky about her new book Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolutions, Violence, and the Roots of Migration - an absolute must read for those seeking to understand and respond to the influx of Central American refugees seeking asylum in the United States today.
“Only by erasing history can we claim that Central American countries created their own poverty and violence, while the United States’ enjoyment and profit from their bananas, coffee, mining, clothing, and export of arms are simply unrelated curiosities.”
Aviva Chomsky is professor of history and coordinator of Latin American Studies at Salem State University. The author of several books, Chomsky has been active in Latin American solidarity and immigrants’ rights issues for over twenty-five years. She lives in Salem, Massachusetts.
