Amid a series of historic anti-government protests in Cuba, the LMC spends the hour with Leonardo Flores on what lessons should we learn and what to look out for in corporate media’s coverage of Cuba. Flores is a Latin American policy expert and campaigner for CodePink.
In our latest installment of our Undocumented & LGBTQ series, LMC co-producer Abby Roberts spends the hour with both Karma Chavez & Bamby Salcedo on the challenges faced by trans/queer migration. Karma Chavez is a queer Chicana feminist and author of, “Queer Migration Politics.” Bamby Salcedo is an advocate, organizer, and the founder of the TransLatin@ Coalition in Los Angeles.
Norberto Martinez, the founder and original producer of the LMC, joins the crew to recap the high’s and low’s of a truly frustrating year. We speak about the Coronavirus, the collapse of the US healthcare system, how Black Lives Matter gained ground in Latin America, and a review of some of our favorite shows. Let’s hope for a better day in 2021.
