Anabel Hernández discusses Narcoland, an investigative account of the relationship between Mexican drug cartels and the government
Corruption grows through silence. If journalists of my generation keep silent, if we give up our work [out of] fear of complicity, journalists after us will be condemned to kneel to this corruption. I hope we will live ... and see that that never happens.
—Anabel Hernández

4:00 P.M. - Dirty Wars and Dangerous Reporting at the Brooklyn Historical Society Library, 128 Pierrepont Street

Jeremy Scahill’s celebrated book and companion documentary film, Dirty Wars, uncovers the most important foreign policy story of our time - America’s new covert wars. Anabel Hernández is one of Mexico's leading investigative journalists whose best-selling book exposed the close ties between the Sinaloa cartel and the Calderon government, making her the target of both. This wide-ranging discussion will make the socio-political connections of global violence.  

Moderated by Betsy Reed, Executive Editor of The Nation.
