Eva Golinger
(Scroll down to see Ms. Golinger's list of articles)

Eva Golinger is a Venezuelan-American attorney and author of the best- selling books, "The Chávez Code: Cracking US Intervention in Venezuela" (2006 Olive Branch Press) and "Bush vs. Chávez: Washington’s War on Venezuela" (2006). Since 2003, Eva has been investigating, analyzing and writing about US intervention in Venezuela using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain information about the US Government’s efforts over the past few years to destabilize Hugo Chávez’s presidency. Through the FOIA, she has uncovered more than US$50 million in financing to anti-Chávez groups from the U.S. government since 2001 and in October 2004, she obtained top-secret documents from the CIA under the Freedom of Information Act, demonstrating prior knowledge and complicity in the coup. Since then, she has continued to receive more declassified documents under the FOIA and she has published two books in five languages (English, Spanish, French, German and Italian) on the subject of US Intervention in Venezuela, with particular emphasis on use of the National Endowment for Democracy and the USAID to fund opposition activities, penetrate civil society and undermine Venezuela’s democratic revolution.

Ms. Golinger’s work has been covered by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Newsday, Chicago Tribune, International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times and other major media around the world. She has also appeared on CNN, BBC, PBS, NPR, Australia’s "Dateline", Swedish, French and Greek television, and is a featured analyst on several major documentaries about Venezuela, including "Venezuela Rising" (Nuestra America Productions, 2006). She currently resides in Caracas, Venezuela and writes as a columnist for several national newspapers and hosts a weekly radio program on national Venezuelan radio. She also frequently appears on one of Venezuela’s most popular political programs on television, "la Hojilla". (author’s blog: www.chavezcode.com).
Her main topics of discussion and presentation include:
  • US Intervention in Venezuela
  • The Bush Administration's Role in the 2002 coup d'etat against President Chavez
  • The National Endowment for Democracy and a tool of undermining democracies around the world (How US Taxpayer Dollars are used for Regime Change)
  • Media Manipulation and Psychological Warfare
  • CIA penetration and actions in Venezuela
  • How to use the Freedom of Information Act to Uncover and Denounce US Aggression and Illegal Activities
  • The Venezuela Revolution and Social Transformation
  • The New Venezuelan Constitution
Eva Golinger has toured France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and parts of the United States, presenting her first book, "The Chávez Code" and informing the international community about the aggressive strategies of the Bush Administration against the Venezuelan people and President Hugo Chávez. She has traveled extensively throughout Venezuela, where she lives, and other parts of Latin America, giving speeches, workshops and presentations on US Intervention in Venezuela and the different strategies the US Government has employed over the years in its continual efforts to oust President Chávez from power. Her first book, "The Chávez Code" won two National Book Awards in Venezuela in 2006 for "Bolivarian Ideology" and "Politics". She also won a National Award for Alternative and Community Media from the Ministry of Communication and Information in Venezuela in 2006 and has received several honors and decorations from different Venezuelan state and municipal governments and military institutions.

A lawyer specializing in international human rights and immigration law, Eva grew up in the United States and moved to Venezuela in the mid-1990s to discover her Venezuelan roots. She lived nearly five years in the Andean city of Mérida, Venezuela, writing, teaching and singing in a band. Golinger studied piano from the age of six and entered into the music department at Sarah Lawrence College in early 1991, majoring in vocal music. But during her university years, she switched her focus to political science and law and became particularly interested in the history of U.S. interventions in Latin America and the role of the CIA in regime change around the world. She earned her Juris Doctorate from the City University of New York Law School and her Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College. Eva Golinger
