- ABOUT US
Thanks to everyone who offered ideas for how to make NACLA even better in the coming years.
A staggering 54 countries have participated in various ways in the American torture system, hosting CIA “black site" prisons, allowing their airspace and airports to be used for secret flights, providing intelligence, kidnapping foreign nationals or their own citizens and handing them over to U.S. agents to be “rendered” to third-party countries. How did Latin America come to be territorio libre in this new dystopian world of black sites and midnight flights?
“Charter cities” have been promoted for years by Paul Romer, a University of Chicago–trained economist teaching at New York University. But the applicability of Romer’s radical vision in Honduras always depended on the enthusiasm of the authoritarian, post-coup government of Porfirio Lobo.
Dear NACLA Supporters,
We at NACLA have been pondering a few questions over the last couple of weeks. What does NACLA mean in the 21st century? How can we best serve our mission?
