Dan Kovalik

 

Dan Kovalik (Louisville, 1968) is a human rights, labor rights lawyer and peace activist. He has contributed to articles CounterPunch, Huffington Post, TeleSUR and RT. He currently teaches International Human Rights at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

The Christian Science Monitor named Kovalik "one of the most prominent defenders of Colombian workers in the United States". He worked on the Alien Tort Claims Act cases against The Coca-Cola Company, Drummond Company and Occidental Petroleum over alleged human rights abuses in Colombia.  Kovalik also accuses the United States of intervention in Colombia saying it has threatened peaceful actors there so it may "make Colombian land secure for massive appropriation and exploitation".  He also accused the Colombian and United States governments of overseeing mass killings in Colombia between 2002 and 2009.

In the United States, Kovalik works as the Associate General Counsel of the United Steelworkers union.
