Readers of the Aspen Daily News who may have read Nat Hentoffs recent article criticizing the American Library Association (ALA) should know that contrary to Mr. Hentoffs statements, ALA did respond to the arrest and jailing of 75 dissidents in Cuba in 2003.
ALA is a democratic organization where the 65,000 members that elect a 183 member Council from the wide spectrum of librarianship to represent them to make policy for the association.
In 2004 ALA joined the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), that speaks for library associations around the world, in expressing its deep concern over the arrest and imprisonment of these dissidents. For ALA and IFLA statements please visit http://www.ala.org/ala/iro/iroactivities/alac...
Mr. Hentoff has lauded IFLAs statements on this issue, but seems to have a problem when ALA takes a similar stance.
