NACLA Update: The Spring issue is out—order it online today!




Dear Naclistas,

Just as the cherry trees are beginning to blossom here in New York, the spring issue on climate justice has arrived! Read the issue online or order your copy today. This report examines the dynamic relationship between extractive industries, environmental degradation, dependency upon non-renewable fossil-fuels, and the altered role of the state versus international conglomerates—all in relation to the climate crisis.

Join us for the launch of the spring report on Earth Day, next Monday, April 22nd!

The Politics of Power: Climate Justice in South America

This panel discussion, which celebrates the launch of our Spring report, will address the question: "The Climate Debt: Who Profits and Who Pays?" The panel will focus on the ambiguous role extractive industries, mostly based in the Global North, play in both the economic development and environmental degradation of countries of the Global South. Participants will include Nicole Fabricant, guest editor of NACLA's Spring report, who will talk about the politics of the generation of power in Bolivia; Gerardo Renique, who will talk about the role that extractivism has played in Peru's economy; and Dada Maheshvarananda, whose talk will focus on global capital and the environment in Venezuela.
