Please join the Global Information Network, this Thursday (4/8) at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion with award-winning journalist Rafael Marques. Milton Allimadi, the publisher of Black Star News, will moderate.

Marques is an investigative reporter who has dug beneath the surface to produce groundbreaking coverage from a human rights perspective from a nation which is a leading oil producer but whose population struggles to survive.

Marques will discuss and answer questions about his efforts to report this complex story amidst political and economic shifts which have created multi-millionaires and dire poverty from the oil resources in Cabinda where an insurgent movement is growing.

The Global Information Network is located at 146 W. 29th on the seventh floor. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and RSVPs are encouraged. Please RSVP by calling (212) 244-3123.
