This Week on Maduro's Narcoterrorism Charges, An Excerpt of "The Five Hundred Year Rebellion" & More


Dear Naclistas,

This week's Photo of the Week comes from the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, which includes the southernmost part off the South American mainland. Many thanks to Devin Lee, a student of Latin American studies and political science at New York University, for the submission. According to her bio, she is particularly in the history and politics of photography in Argentina, which she is writing a thesis on. And in her photography, she enjoys candid and commonplace subjects that she encounters by accident, usually while on a long walk.

"Tierra del Fuergo" (Argentina, 2019) by Devin Lee. 

As a reminder, the deadline to submit a photo for our next newsletter will be Wednesday, April 15th. Please remember to use the subject line 'NACLA Photo of the Week.' We also ask that submissions include a caption (50 words or less) and a short bio (50 words or less) to, along with links to social media handles and/or your personal website. We'll be selecting the image that best captures the week in your part of the Latin America. 

On that note, please find below the week's articles published on, which include an excerpt adapted from Ben Dangl's new book The Five Hundred Year Rebellion: Indigenous Movements and the Decolonization of History in Bolivia, as well as a breakdown of the dubious narco-terrorism charges against Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro and a Spanish-language translation of Kevin A. Young and Atenea Jiménez Lemon's article published in the spring volume of the NACLA Report (read the English version here).
