NACLA Update: The Spring issue on climate justice has shipped!






Dear Friends of NACLA,

We have some good news: the NACLA Report has been nominated as one of four finalists for the 2013 Utne Media Award in the category of International Coverage!  The winner will be selected in the next few weeks.

In other news, the Spring issue on "The Climate Debt: Who Profits Who Pays?" has shipped! This issue examines the dynamic relationship in Latin America between extractive industries, environmental degradation, dependency upon non-renewable fossil fuels, and the altered role of the state versus international conglomerates—in relation to the climate crisis.

To celebrate the release of the Spring issue, NACLA will host a launch event on April 22 at the King Juan Carlos center—save the date!

Speakers at the launch celebration will include:

Nicole Fabricant: a professor at Towson University who is currently researching resource issues in the highlands of Bolivia examines the intersection of climate change, glacier melt, and water scarcity. As the guest editor for NACLA's latest Report on the America's, Nicole Fabricant will speak about climate justice in Latin America.

Dada Maheshvarananda: a yogic monk, activist, and writer who founded the Prout Research Institute of Venezuela—an independent, not-for-profit foundation located in Caracas, Venezuela, where he serves as director. He will discuss how amidst the global capitalism that is destroying our economy, our society, and our planet there are positive examples of economic democracy that are taking place in Latin America and in the United States.
