Sat 24 Mar - MATTHEW SWEET - Operation Chaos
Matthew Sweet talks about the deserters from the American war in Vietnam who fought the CIA, the brainwashers and each other. His book Operation Chaos tells the story of how the CIA tried to infiltrate the American Deserters Committee during the cold war. His account reveals the personal struggles in this project to collect and recount this oral history, and his growing awareness of the impact of displacement and dislocation in the counter-culture. This bizarre history has had a lasting impact today in theories of conspiracy and global economics and the popular fears of radical resistance.
