*"U.S. Imperialism, the Latin American Left, and Liberation Theology"*
*with Ben Norton*

During the Donald Trump administration, top U.S. government officials 
repeatedly invoked the nearly 200-year-old colonial Monroe Doctrine to 
justify US interventions in Latin America. Even under President Joe 
Biden today, these aggressive imperialist policies continue in the 
region, which Washington has long considered to be its “backyard.” Ben 
Norton will speak about how the US government has for decades waged a 
war on the Latin American left, and how this brutal campaign continues 
today, targeting not only the secular left, but also progressive and 
revolutionary Christian movements inspired by liberation theology.

• *Ben Norton* is a journalist, writer, and filmmaker whose work focuses 
primarily on US foreign policy, Latin America, and media criticism. Ben 
is assistant editor of the investigative journalism website The 
Grayzone. He has reported from numerous countries, including Venezuela, 
Bolivia, Honduras, Colombia, and Iran. Although Ben is a US citizen, he 
lives in Nicaragua.

*“Peacemaking and Jailbreaks:
Liberation in Captivity"*
*with John Bach*
introduction by *Joyce Katzberg*

If we consider the existential threats of nuclear weapons and climate 
destruction as imprisoning the human family, what tools may we develop 
to resist the lunacy and give hope to each other and future generations? 
How can we keep ourselves free and reasonably happy? The example of Fr. 
Placid Karoly Olafsson, a survivor of 10 years in the Soviet Gulag, will 
be discussed.
