A Peoples' Policy for the Americas


Dear Naclistas,

It can be difficult to see the big picture of things, especially as we adjust to life at home, days, weeks, and in some cases, months removed from whatever daily routine we once knew. Accordingly, the world can seem smaller, but the truth is we are all in this together. Mutual aid, solidarity—call it what you want. It is the core of NACLA's mission.

Our spring issue, "A Peoples' Policy for the Americas," is the latest example of this solidarity. Edited by Daniel Bessner and Vanessa Freije, this volume puts forth a more progressive vision of hemispheric relations. The cover art by Eric García is an attempt to evoke this imagined future, which is important to reflect upon as we watch past obstacles to the status quo fall away, one by one.

As a friendly reminder, your subscription to the NACLA Report on the Americas includes not only this spring issue, but an upcoming summer issue on ecosocialism AND two forthcoming issues scheduled for release before the year is through. We also offer a student discount, four issues for just $35. 

If you are already a subscriber, we thank you for your ongoing support. If not, you can read a couple of articles from the issue (see below) that are currently available open access for a limited time—then make up your mind. You can always choose to make a small donation online (free web content on nacla.org is made possible by our readers). 

Lastly, please stay safe, stay home, and stay informed!

In solidarity,

Read the Editor's Intro to our latest print issue of the NACLA Report, A Peoples’ Policy for the Americas, focused on imagining what a progressive, democratized U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America could look like.  
The United States must abandon Cold War-era foreign policies and accept that Cuba is a sovereign nation free to define its political future—even if that means continuing socialism.

Sanctions and other forms of economic warfare have long caused serious harm for countries on the receiving end of Washington’s efforts to impose its policy agenda. Could a progressive U.S. administration marshal economic power at the service of people, not capital?
