The Trump presidency has overseen a worrying rise in US interventions in Latin America, with the blockade of Cuba being tightened, sanctions threatened on Nicaragua, and Trump pushing for military intervention in Venezuela. Despite this the resurgent right-wing in Latin America is facing resistance, with the left winning the Mexican election, and trade unionists and popular movements mobilising to defend social progress across the region. Come along to hear eyewitness accounts and get involved in standing up to Trump’s interventions in Latin America.
With contributions from over campaigners, politicians, trade unionists and academics from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Venezuela and the UK.
Speakers to include: Dr Mariela Castro, Cuban MP & director of CENESEX; Maritza Espinales, Nicaraguan MP; Guillaume Long, former Ecuadorian Foreign Minister; Rocio Maneiro, Venezuela; Tariq Ali; Chris Williamson MP and many more.
