Attorney and best-selling author Eva Golinger speaks about her work uncovering U.S. interventionist policies, including her use of the Freedom of Information Act to prove U.S. funding of various anti-Hugo Chavez groups in Venezuela, as well as their prior knowledge and involvement in the 2004 coup attempt. The WikiLeaks phenomenon has added new dimensions to her latest discoveries, which includes how the U.S. government finances media and youth opposition in Cuba and Venezuela to provoke regime change.

Gather at the Greek Theater before the Berkeley Law School's graduation ceremony to inform students, faculty, and parents of the shady past of this current professor and former Bush administration lawyer who initiated the infamous "torture memo" of 2003, justifying the illegal use of torture of suspects held at Guantanamo Bay and secret detention centers round the world. The goal of this peaceful assembly is to inform graduation-goers and pass out orange ribbons for attendees to wear as a silent protest against this accomplice in war crimes.
