Not everything is rosy with peace and love regarding the open arm of Canada towards immigration. In fact, for several years, the Canadian immigration system has become more in lockstep with the US regarding asylum seekers and the undocumented. So the LMC speaks with Patricia Martin, an associate professor of Geography at the Universite de Montreal, about the myths and harsh realities of migrating to Canada.
The LMC starts 2018 by asking who is Nayib Bukele? Is he friend or foe? Is he a populist for the people or just another neoliberal politician? Is he the future president of El Salvador or a capitalist step backwards? Find out when we speak with freelance writer Hilary Goodfriend.
Forget turkey day. Instead, the LMC chats with freelance reporter Melissa Vida about the life and teachings of the late Tata Genaro Ramirez and his efforts to revive and preserve the indigenous Nawat language in El Salvador. An alternative history of indigenous peoples persevering after the Salvadoran genocide of 1932.
