The Trump presidency has seen a worrying escalation in the number and intensity of US interventions in Latin America: the tightening of the blockade against Cuba; further sanctions and threats of military intervention against Venezuela; threats of sanctions in the form of the NICA Act against Nicaragua; and torrents of fake news. Find out what is really happening in Latin America at this annual conference.
