|Dear NACLA Friends,
A few weeks ago we released our Summer 2012 issue of the NACLA Report on the Americas, "Latin America and the Global Economy," which examines the effects of global capitalism on the region. Despite the global financial crisis, Latin America has remained relatively solvent and some countries are experiencing record growth. This NACLA Report asks why and how, and looks at the grassroots response to the new face of global capitalism in Latin America.
In addition to the "Report" section, this issue features a five-page color photo essay, "Occupy: Resistance to Global Capitalism in the Americas," and a NACLA investigation funded by the Samuel Chavkin Fund for Investigative Journalism, which finds the Dominican Republic to be openly discriminating against Haitian immigrants, just two years after the devastating earthquake of 2010.
The color section also features the winning images from our Summer photo contest. We'd like to congratulate the winner, Lisbeth Rasch, for her beautiful photographs of migrants who travel on the famous la bestia train toward the U.S. border. We are now accepting submissions for NACLA's Fall Photo Contest! The topic for the contest is Media in the Americas. Participants must send their high-resolution pictures (and caption information) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "NACLA Photo Contest" by August 15.
The winning photograph will be published in full color in the Fall NACLA Report. The winner will receive a copy of the magazine with his or her photograph, and a one-year subscription to NACLA. Complete submission guidelines can be found on our photo contest page.
