Links to TVSet topics from April 19 Live Show

TVSet’s live April 19th show will start in just over two hours at 6 p.m. on Comcast Portland Channel 11. Topics on the show are often wide ranging and this evening is no exception.

On the cultural, and Latin American history side of the equation, delve into the life of Eduardo Galeano. [Look for an earlier blog post on his life and how he straightened out revisionist history].

Here are some links of interest:

Link to a legal, free PDF of “Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent”, the book President Hugo Chavez gave to President Obama at the 2009 Summit of the Americas (the copyright has expired on the work).  https://ia700708.us.archive.org/25/items/fp_Open_Veins_of_Latin_America/Open_Veins_of_Latin_America.pdf
