Dear Friends,

I invite you to take advantage of a unique publication--Abya Yala News (published in Spanish as Noticias de Abya Yala). Abya Yala News (AYN) is the only journal providing a grassroots Indigenous perspective on the Indigenous movement in Mexico, Central and South America.

At $25 per year ($15 low-income) for individuals, Abya Yala News presents in-depth analysis of critical issues affecting Indigenous communities such as:

You may receive SAIIC's journal in either English or Spanish and get exclusive interviews with Indigenous leaders, synapses of key declarations and human rights reports.

Reply soon, and receive the newest journal issue on the International Labor Organization's Convention 169 and how it has affected the Indigneous communities in the nations where it has been ratified, highlighting Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. It includes a special report on Chile's massive Ralco dam project being built on Pehuenche territory.

Finally, your subscription contributes to the South and Meso American Indian Rights Center, enabling us to continue promoting peace, social and economic justice, respect for human rights and full participation of Indian people in decisions that affect our lives. This year SAIIC has streamlined Abya Yala News to produce two bilingual issues, devoting our resources most effectively to produce timely, high-quality, and informative publications. Your $25 also helps send the Spanish version of Abya Yala News free of charge to Indigenous activists and organizations throughout the Americas.
