Latin America: Stirrings in the Servants' Quarters
Program #CHON189. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on September 29, 2006.In his first full-length interview since Hugo Chavez's UN speech which made his books bestsellers, Noam Chomsky talks about developments in Latin America and challenges to U.S. hegemony. Since the Monroe Doctrine, the U.S. has viewed Latin America as an area it could easily dominate and control. With the elections of Chavez in Venezuela and Evo Morales in Bolivia, the region's traditional subordination to the colossus in the north, is changing. There are stirrings in the servants' quarters. Chavez's comments at the UN calling Bush "the devil" received maximum media attention while his substantive political comments and the long applause he received at the end of his presentation were ignored. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
