Andean Intrigue: Peruvian Terrorism
Jul 2 @ 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Andean Intrigue: Peruvian Terrorism

Presented by: Gary Jackson

Gary Jackson is interested in the past and the historical forces that interacted  to form the present and how these forces will continue to interact and create the future.

In the 1980’s & 90’s Peru was engaged in an insurrection involving two Marxist revolutionary movements.  Complicating the problem, both sides engaged in hostage taking, terrorism,  counter terrorism,  and death squads. Added to this toxic brew, was a spymaster who’s web would extend to all levels of society, gun running, narcotics trafficking, billions of dollars and an American woman involved with one of Marxists groups.  Tens of thousands died in this tragedy that extended into nations as far as Jordan.
