LAWGEF and Hemingway Delegation Advocate for U.S.–Cuba Environmental Cooperation

Following in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway, the Latin America Working Group Education Fund (LAWGEF) organized a delegation headed by John and Patrick Hemingway, grandsons of Ernest, to travel to Cuba and work with researchers to promote cooperation between the United States and Cuba in the field of marine conservation. The trip served the dual purpose of commemorating Hemingway’s life in Cuba and his love for the country, and his passion for the preservation of the Florida Straits. The group was able to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Hemingway’s Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954 and the 80th anniversary of Hemingway’s first journey from Key West to Havana on his cabin cruiser, Pilar, in 1934.

Central America: A Humanitarian Response for a Humanitarian Crisis

An unprecedented number of unaccompanied children and families have arrived at the U.S. southern border after fleeing their homes in Central America and Mexico this year. In fiscal year 2014 alone, 68,000 unaccompanied children, mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico — more than double the 2013 total — were apprehended at the U.S.–Mexico border. Though President Obama was quick to call the influx of these children and families to the United States an “urgent humanitarian crisis” at its peak in June, the broader response from our policymakers thus far has been anything but humanitarian.

Syria, Sudan, and Colombia? The Human Cost of War

What do Colombia, Syria, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo have in common? Believe it or not, Colombia ranks behind only Syria in the number of internally displaced people, with over 5.7 million fleeing their homes due to conflict. That striking number is just one example of just how costly the last five decades of internal conflict have been to Colombia’s civilian population.

Todos Somos Ayotzinapa: Calls for Justice in Mexico after a Student Massacre

“Todo Mexico es una fosa clandestina”
“All of Mexico is a clandestine grave”

Father Solalinde conveyed that disturbing assessment in the aftermath of a late September day when municipal police in Iguala, Guerrero, open-fired on buses of student protesters from the Escuela Normal Rural de Ayotzinapa, a local rural teachers’ college. Hours later, students were again fired upon by individuals in plain clothes. By the end of the night, six people had been killed, among them three students, 20 injured, one in a coma, and 43 had disappeared. The missing had been last seen being carted off by the municipal police, a force reported to be infiltrated by local criminal groups.

Voces from Colombia: Luis Fernando Arias

As peace in Colombia comes closer to being a reality, the U.S. government, which for so long supported all-out war, must be prepared to finally support peace. As part of our efforts to press the White House and Congress to make this change, the Latin America Working Group Education Fund (LAWGEF) co-sponsored a delegation of victims of Colombia’s internal armed conflict to discuss the rights of victims and their proposals for achieving a just and lasting peace. Their stirring words came just before the discussion on victims’ rights opened in August 2014 at the negotiating table in Havana, Cuba.
