For this assignment, you are to read current news article about Latin America from the website for the North American Congress of Latin America (NACLA) and submit a review. Review is to be at least 3-4 pages.
Please use both a title page and a works cited page (neither of these pages count toward your 3-4 pages of text). In your works cited page, compose your article entry in a format like this:
Nidia Bautista, “Justice for Lesvy: Indifference and Outrage in Response to Gender Violence in Mexico City,” NACLA Report on the Americas website (July 31, 2017).
In terms of the content of each report, I am looking for two main points of discussion. First, you should devote the first half of the report to a summary of the main points in the article that you selected. To help you to address this issue, consider some of these questions: What is the main issue being discussed? (i.e. immigration, elections, education, environment, women’s issues, crime, etc.) Who are the main personalities mentioned in the article? (i.e. Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, President Biden, Vice-President Harris, Former President Trump, etc.) How does the issue affect the people of the country mentioned in the article? Does the issue have any connection with United States interests? What do you think could be the best solution to resolve this problem?
For the second point of discussion, please analyze the article that you selected and present your point of view on the story. For example, how do you feel about the story? How did this article contribute to your understanding about modern Latin America? And what do you think about the author’s perspective on the article? How does this topic relate to contemporary political, economic or cultural themes in the United States today?
Please select only ONE of the following articles for this assignment
