Amnesty International and Award-Winning ‘Dirty Secrets, Dirty War’ Author David Cox Link Up on Human Rights Abuses

November 12, 2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ — Award-winning human rights author David Cox and Amnesty International will be hosting a special event on November 17th at 7:00 pm at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Tribeca. In conjunction with Evening Post Publishing and La Vita E Bella, Mr. Cox and representatives from Amnesty International will be discussing their positions on human rights, use of torture, imprisonment and issues regarding impunity during the bloody post-Peronist era in Argentina.

Mr. Cox will read passages from his book, “Dirty Secrets, Dirty War: The Exile of Robert J. Cox” which covers the period of 1976 to 1983 in Argentina when an estimated 30,000 people deemed possible subversives by the government disappeared. Very few survived to tell the story. The victims were kidnapped, taken to detention centers, tortured and killed.

At the time, one man in Argentina was determined to tell the truth about what was happening despite the threat of imprisonment and personal physical hazard. This man, Robert J. Cox, was the Editor of the Buenos Aires Herald during this horrific era. His son, David Cox the author, grew up in the midst of this period and will share his father’s incredible story with us.

As recently reported in numerous media outlets around the globe, the now “aged” military leaders who led these atrocities will be facing trial in Argentina for these crimes in what is considered to be one of the most anticipated human rights judicial proceedings.

The event will be held at Barnes & Noble bookstore in Tribeca located at 97 Warren Street at 7:00 pm. There is no admission charge and Mr. Cox’s book will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
