NACLA Update: The Chavkin Award, Chile 40 Events, and more!


Dear Friends,

We are busy putting together the fall issue on "Chile: 40 Years Later," which will be out in late September and will be launched as a tablet edition shortly thereafter.

Complementing this special issue of the NACLA Report, there will also be a series of great events happening in New York over the next month to mark the anniversary of the coup. Please see our events page for the full lineup and mark your calendars!

NACLA Presents...
The Chavkin Prize for Integrity in
Latin American Journalism

We are also pleased to announce that Pedro Cayuqueo is the winner of the 2013 Chavkin Award for Integrity in Journalism in Latin America!
Pedro Cayuqueo is a Mapuche-Chilean journalist whose work has been strongly supportive of the Mapuche-indigenous cause. Through his writing and journalism, he has long been active in the struggle for Mapuche rights and respect for indigenous cultural heritage. For his activist efforts he has been jailed on at least two occasions in Chile—in one case resulting in an intervention on his behalf by Adolfo Pérez-Esquivel.

He is the founder and editor of two newspapers, Azkintuwe (The Spectator) and MapucheTimes, both of which circulate in Chile and Argentina. His chronicles, interviews, and opinion columns are regularly published by media in Latin American and Europe, including La Jornada (Mexico), Página 12 (Argentina), Berria (Basque Country), and The Independent (England).

We will honoring Pedro's work on September 29th in New York City. All NACLA supporters are cordially invited to attend the Chavkin Award celebration and reception.
