Agents & Assets
A National and International Residency Performance Project
AGENTS & ASSETS is a Residency Performance Project which seeks to give voice to the people whose communities have been most devastated by drugs and counterproductive drug policies. The text of Agents & Assets is a March 18, 1998, hearing transcript from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The allegations in question in this session were made in a 1996 series of articles by journalist Gary Webb in the San Jose Mercury News, which alleged CIA involvement in crack cocaine trafficking into the Los Angeles area. With Agents and Assets LAPD puts day to day experiences in a larger social and political context while exposing the root causes and policies that help perpetuate poverty.
