Palm Beach DSA will be having its weekly political education reading group this Thursday, July 8th at 8:00pm.
This week we will begin discussing the book "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent" by Eduardo Galeano. We plan on having a presentation and discussion before discussing chapter one of the book. Anyone is encouraged to attend this discussion, even if you haven't had a chance to do any of the reading!
In this book, Galeano analyzes the impact that European settlement, imperialism and slavery have had in Latin America. He analyzes the history of the Americas as a whole, from the period of European settlement of the New World to contemporary Latin America, describing the effects of European and later United States economic exploitation and political dominance over the region. Throughout the book, Galeano analyses notions of colonialism, imperialism, and the dependency theory.
A free copy of the reading can be found here.
Please RSVP here.
All are welcome to join. And again, feel free to join us even if you haven't had a chance to do the reading!
We look forward to seeing you there!
