Seumus Milne speaking at Latin America Conference 2010.

The annual Latin America conferences have become one of the most successful events of their kind in the UK. Since December 2005, thousands of delegates from across the country have come to hear speakers from more than 30 countries discuss and share experiences of developments in the Caribbean and Latin America.

UK contributors have included Harold Pinter, Tariq Ali and Tony Benn. From Europe, the US and the region itself, trade union and social movement leaders, writers, artists, politicians, campaigners, film directors, diplomats and academics have all shared platforms. Most importantly, the conferences have heard first hand from the peoples of Latin America; of their struggle to free themselves from the hegemony of US domination, their battle to gain control of national resources, and their fight to defend their gains and achievements. From Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Brazil and Colombia, the people of the region are finding their voice, realising their power and determining their own futures.

The Latin America conferences provide a fascinating insight into the reality of the region and effective ways for people in the UK to find out more and support these struggles and movements by getting involved in solidarity work.
