NACLA Update: Remembering Pedro Lemebel

NACLA Update


In Memoriam: Pedro Lemebel

It is with sorrow that we share the news of the death of Pedro Lemebel (1952-2015), Chilean performance artist, writer, and radical homosexual activist. Pedro Lemebel was the consummate chronicler of the margins of Chilean society—an uncompromising fighter for human and sexual rights whose work will forever challenge the homophobic culture of the Chilean left. NACLA was fortunate to publish some of his writings and today, in his honor and memory, we share his chronicle of the death of the tyrant. Pedro Lemebel will, without doubt, enter his place of rest under a shower of red petals. May he rest in power.

As the trial resumes, I share a clip from our 1983 film “When the Mountains Tremble.” Here Rigoberta Menchú begins a story that continues today in the courtroom.


There's just one week left to pre-order the final issue of the NACLA Report.  The final issue, "Mapping the Moment," will be out in February and promises to be a great final edition, with coverage of transnational movements today, water management in the Andes, and more.

Pre-order the final issue now!
