We're excited to announce the release of our latest issue, Free Trade 2.0 !
Eleven years after mass mobilizations defeated the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), Latin America now faces a moment of resurgent economic empire, once more driven by the U.S.’s desire to extend the reach of free trade and investment. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in the debate surrounding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and in the Fall Report our contributors offer a detailed look at the origins and potential impact of the mega trade deal on the Americas.
The new issue also explores changes and continuities of U.S. interests amidst the economic opening of Cuba, how capital interests will shape post-peace accord Colombia, and the impact of transnational mining on indigenous and campesino communities in Guatemala and beyond. That's not to mention updates on organizing in Honduras, Brazil's neoconservative offensive, a feature essay on Latin@ voters and the 2016 election, and much more.
Plus, keep your eyes open for updates about the upcoming NACLA podcast and issue launch event in the coming weeks.
