Dear friends,

NACLA would like to invite you to the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archive (ALBA) 76th annual gala, which will present the second ALBA/Puffin Award for Human Rights Activism to Kate Doyle and Fredy Peccerelli. Many of you became acquainted with ALBA during our co-sponsorship of the human rights documentary film series "Imugning Impunity" last fall. ALBA shares our commitment to political and social justice, and together, we hope to educate and inform generations of activists in our organizations.

Print Edition: Central America: Legacies of War

In the 1980s, Central America sank deep into political turmoil amid civil wars, brutal military dictatorships, and U.S. intervention. Three decades later, NACLA examines the legacies of war in Central America: Honduras is reliving its history of military coups, repression, and impunity. In Guatemala, a former dictator is charged with genocide. Across the region, former guerrillas and generals are in power, the military is again taking a disturbingly prominent role in policing, and communities are defending their land from powerful interests.

Stay tuned for upcoming interviews, event announcements, and previews.
