Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Hillary's past presents an interventionist future in Latin America.


Most people in the US government are following a policy approach and a philosophy that the US government can do whatever they want in any part of the world, especially their backyard. What really needs to happen is a shift in approach to the US role in the world. And the change, like any change, has to start from the bottom up.

Geography scholar Meleiza Figueroa explains why the disasterous imperialism of US foreign policy has passed from decade to decade and president to president, largely unchanged and unchallenged, and how a Hillary Clinton presidency endangers the safety and security of workers, environmental activists and reformers across Latin America.

Meleiza wrote the recent article Hillary Clinton Cries Crocodile Tears for Latin American Immigrants for Truthdig.
