Book Presentation and Signing: "Nicaragua" by Susan Meiselas

Originally published in 1981, Susan Meiselas’s Nicaragua is a seminal work of concerned photojournalism. Meiselas’s images trace the evolution of the popular resistance that led to the insurrection, culminating with the triumph of the Sandinista revolution in July 1979. The new edition of Nicaragua includes an augmented reality (AR) function, bringing a selection of images to life via clips from Meiselas’s films "Pictures from a Revolution" (1991) and "Reframing History" (2004), which will be screened during the event.

Featuring: Susan Meiselas; Diana Taylor, Director of the Hemispheric Institute; Thomas Kruse, Program Director, Rockefeller Brothers Fund; and Marcial Godoy-Anativia, Assistant Director of the Hemispheric Institute.

When: Wednesday, October 25, 6:00- 8:00 PM.

Where: Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor Conference Room, New York, NY

Cohosted by NACLA and the Hemispheric Institute.

“Survivors Speak Out on Mexico’s Human Rights Crisis”

Citizen outrage at the participation of government and security forces with organized crime and high levels of impunity in Mexico have combined with popular resistance to reforms to create a volatile political situation that offers both hope for change and fears of a repressive response. The next U.S. administration will have to go beyond the racist wall and the violence-inducing drug war to profoundly rethink binational policy, placing peaceful coexistence and respect for human rights at the center.

Featuring: Antonio Tizapa, Father of Jorge Antonio, one of the 43 disappeared students of Ayotzinapa; Italia Mendez, Survivor of sexual torture in police custody following repression of Atenco protests in 2006; Laura Carlsen, Director of the Americas Program of the Center for International Policy, and the Mexican Network of Women Human Rights Defenders; and Harry Bubbins of Friends of Brad Will, the national organization demanding justice for the 2006 murder of the U.S. journalist in the Oaxaca, Mexico uprising.

When: October 27th 6:30-8:30 pm 

Where: Community Room 115, 3rd Floor, CUNY School of Law, 2 Court Square, Long Island City, New York, New York

Cohosted by CIP Americas and Friends of Brad Will.
