A couple of new developments. First, the new issue is up online! (Better late than never, right?). Go to nacla.org to peruse the Fall 2012 edition of NACLA Report, which focuses on radical media in Latin America. Guest edited by communications expert Mario Murillo, it includes pieces on everything from Occupy Wall Street ("Human Mic: Technologies for Democracy," by Rossana Reguillo) to the dangers faced by Latin American journalists ("The Deadliest Countries in the Hemisphere for Journalists," by Carlos Lauría). Check it out now.
Also, the NACLA bookstore is having a big sale—and not just any old sale. Currently in the midst of moving offices, we've cleaned out our closets, and it turns out they were full of rare editions of NACLA publications, colorful NACLA satchels (now for just $5), and other fun stuff. Lots is on sale and everything must go, as they say. We'll be adding new items to the inventory for the next couple weeks so keep checking back for more classic NACLA items.
Finally a reminder that the Samuel Chavkin Award for Integrity in Latin American Journalism honoring Honduran reporter Felix Molina has been rescheduled for December 3rd, 2012, 6-8 p.m. at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (Riverside Dr. @ 120th St.). If you had already RSVP'd, please email email@example.com or call 646-613-1440 x203 to confirm your attendance. If you'd like to attend, we're still accepting RSVPs through November 23rd.
