Our latest, plus an upcoming Jacobin/NACLA event!


Dear Naclistas,

We are pleased to announce our upcoming panel at Left Forum, "What's Next For Latin America's Left?" consponsored by Jacobin Magazine. 

In this special panel, contributors to NACLA and Jacobin offer frank assessments of what went wrong and what can - and must - be salvaged in the region as struggles for social justice continue in and out of view, considering especially relations between state and progressive social movements, new forms of conservative reaction, and how the left beyond the region should respond.

Who: Featuring George Ciccariello-Maher, Linda Farthing, Gabriel Hetland, and Thea Riofrancos, and moderated by Alejandro Velasco and Jason Farbman

When: Saturday, June 3, 2017, from 10:00 AM - 11:50 AM

Where: Left Forum 2017, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Room 1.108

899 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10019
