VOICES OF LATIN AMERICA
LAB’s major new book, Voices of Latin America is published on 18 January 2019.
The fruit of four years work, it is based on interviews with 74 social movement activists in 14 countries. These are the people from whom progressive change is coming to the region: they can inspire us all.
Voices is organized into 11 Chapters, as follows:
- Introduction: living life on their own terms by Tom Gatehouse
- Fighting machismo: women on the front line by Louise Morris
- LGBT rights, the rainbow tide by Ali Rocha
- The student revolution by Emily Greg
- Indigenous peoples and the rights of nature by Linda Etchart
- The hydroelectric threat to the Amazon Basin by Marilene Cardoso Ribeiro & Sue Branford
- Mining and communities by Tom Gatehouse
- State violence, policing and paramilitaries by Mike Gatehouse
- Spaces of everyday resistance: the right to the city by Antonia Burchard-Levine
- The new journalism: now the people make the news by Mike Gatehouse

After January 2019, Voices will also be an ongoing website, for which this will be the Home Page. You will find a page for each of the chapters in the book, (links in the table of content, above, including the chapter abstract; references (with hyperlinks which make it easy to find them); photos; videos and other reports and articles, as well as additional voices, new testimony, links to longer reports and a platform for comments, sharing of experience and discussion with others. This site will extend the life of the Voices collection far beyond the publication date of the book.
