There's Still Time to Support NACLA in 2018 - plus, check out our latest web content!


“Latin America is facing very difficult times. What happens in the colossus of the North, worrisome enough, cannot fail to have an enormous impact. In the challenging times ahead, NACLA’s contributions are sure to continue be of great significance for those who seek a better world.”

—Noam Chomsky

As we celebrate our 50th year of publication, a new wave of right-wing politics and violence grips the region. 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. 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. 

En solidaridad,

Alejandro Velasco, Executive Editor
