As we celebrate our 50th year of publication, a new wave of right-wing politics and violence grips the region. As ever, NACLA stands ready to shine a light on dark times, drawing on our deep history to bring you the voices of those who have been here before, as well as those of a new generation of scholars, activists, writers, and artists in the heart of the struggle.
In the difficult days ahead, as in those we have faced before, stand with us anew or again to ensure that NACLA remains a vital source for progressive coverage and analysis of the Americas.
This was an important year for NACLA. Our special 50th anniversary issue—out now—is two things: a testament to NACLA’s untiring efforts to provide a platform for struggle and solidarity across borders, and a crucial educational resource and blueprint for justice and solidarity movements in the region and beyond. We also launched The Latin East project, an unprecedented collaboration with the Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP) and Jadaliyya, marked by a special issue of NACLA and a watershed international conference. This summer, we took a deep dive into disaster capitalism—and how we can defeat it.
In the coming year, we will bring you issues focused on anti-patriarchal, anti-capitalist feminist organizing; mobilization across and against borders; the politics of corruption and anti-corruption; and cities and urban politics as sites of creative resistance to ascendant nationalism. On Giving Tuesday, will you be among our supporters?
Meanwhile, our web content has expanded and flourished this year in response to the most important developments in the region, from the rise of neo-fascism in Brazil under Jair Bolsonaro to Trump’s continued threats to immigrants to protecting the fragile foundations of peace in Colombia. The nuanced investigations found in these articles go beyond mainstream takes, interrogating structures of power, capital, and empire. As the region faces attacks on the media and right to protest, increasing austerity, worsening climate disasters, and hateful policy and rhetoric from Brazil to the U.S.-Mexico border, NACLA’s voice is more crucial than ever. But we can’t do it without your help. Can we count on you to support us in the new year?
We deeply appreciate the gifts that our supporters have sent so far, and if you have already given, thank you. If you have not, please consider a tax-deductible donation today, so that we can keep up our fight.
