Email Update: Tickets Available Online for the 45th Benefit Gala!



Eduardo Galeano, Patricio Guzmán, Naomi Klein, and our NACLA Host Committee invite you to our 45th Benefit Gala!

Join 150 of our closest friends in honoring Noam Chomsky, Javier Sicilia, and Eduardo del Río (Rius) for their significant contributions towards Latin American peace and justice causes over the years. Individual tickets and packages can now be purchased here.

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.
