Alborada Magazine on Latin American Politics and Culture

"The launch of Alborada magazine is one of those landmarks of journalism. For me, the epic story of hope in our time is the rise of Latin America, as people and their movements shake off their chains, especially those tethering them to the United States."

- John Pilger (Journalist, author and documentary filmmaker)

Editors: Nick MacWilliam, Pablo Navarrete, Tim Potter, Josh Watts
