Why does it seem that Paraguay is so isolated to the rest of Latin America? The answer may lie in a genocidal war that almost destroyed the country and the Guarani language that united it during reconstruction. The LMC speaks with Paraguayan writer Benjamin Fernandez Bogado to learn more about the extraordinary Guarani language. Benjamin Fernandez Bogado is also the program director for Radio Libre and a columnist for 5dias del Paraguay.
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.
On this special joint episode between the LMC and Latino Rebels Radio, Julio Ricardo Varela and LMC host Oscar Fernandez finally join forces to discuss the highs and lows of 2017 & how the struggle for social justice continues into 2018. Sigue la lucha & thanks to everyone for following us this year!!!!
