For decades, critics have accused the United States of viewing Latin America solely as a project for economic expansion and exploitation. Even liberals see the global south as an object of unilateral help or charity. But social change activists say the tables have turned.

Marina Sitrin, author and attorney; Ben Dangl, Burlington College in Vermont professor; Mario Murillo, author & Hofstra University professor; Oscar Estrada, Honduran filmmaker & 2010 NarcoNews School of Authentic Journalism participant.
