"Solidaridad para siempre" is more than a slogan. It's a commitment. The latest from NACLA-


Dear Naclistas,

It’s been a tough week for those of us at NACLA. We’ve looked on in dismay as the new Trump administration has taken the first steps toward enacting some of its most fascistic campaign promises, from gag orders and censoring government websites to a religion-based immigration ban and moves to defund arts and public news organizations. We at NACLA are not content to sit and watch as the current administration violates our values, endangers the most vulnerable members of our society, and moves rapidly to silence dissent.


“Solidaridad para siempre” is not just a slogan, it is a commitment. For those who take to the streets in protest, we are with you. For those who take up their pens and their cameras, we are with you. For those across the United States, in Latin America and beyond who resist bullies and stand up for the rights of the marginalized, we are with you.


As the Trump administration pushes forward with its agenda, it’s important to keep in mind that the political shift happening in the United States is part of a larger global pattern—the resurgence of Right wing politics. The NACLA Report’s winter issue, Right Turn, was all about this shift in Latin America and the United States, on how it came about and on what the future of the political Left may look like under a New Right.

Look for our upcoming issues in March, on the resonance of Black Lives Matter in Latin America, and in June, on the Trump administration's impact across the region.
