Dear subscribers, colleagues and friends,

Today, on Giving Tuesday, we are approaching you to ask for your help in sustaining Resumen Latinoamericano.  This Wednesday we will be sending out our 143rd issue of 2023, bringing news and analysis from Latin America and the Caribbean to growing audiences in North America and Europe. News that is difficult to obtain elsewhere. We couldn’t do this without your financial support and the encouragement you show for our work.

January 2024 will be the start of our 9th year of uninterrupted publication and our enthusiasm for bringing you the truth has not diminished, in fact it has grown. We hope that you will support us and help us continue our work.

These are difficult times, and we cannot recall a time when the lies emanating from corporate media and western governments were this intense. Whether fanning the flames of devastation in Gaza or funding millions in USAID and NED grants that go towards creating fake media to undermine Cuba, the Empire is relentless. So, we too must be relentless in our duty to distribute truthful, honest media.  We look forward to your continued support.

All donations to Resumen Latinoamericano are tax deductible, no matter how large or small.

With Love, Appreciation and Solidarity,




Bill Hackwell, Editor
