About Secret History

Commentary on Latin America.
Mostly about Mexico - but not always.
Designed to encourage readers to learn about
the apparently "secret history" of 500 million people
spread across two continents
- but not always.
You can always count on a little snark.

Another Boycott of Arizona

This just in from the Rocky Mountain Council of Latin American Studies:
FYI: In Boulder, the RMCLAS Executive Committee decided that the 2012 meeting (remember the the 2011 meeting will be in Santa Fe) would be held in Tucson, Arizona, but last week the Executive Committee voted unanimously to revoke that decision according to the following motion:
That the Rocky Mountain Council of Latin American Studies (RMCLAS) Executive Committee revoke its previous decision to hold the RMCLAS 2012 meeting in Tucscon, AZ. RMCLAS strongly opposes Arizona legislation SB 1070. We support our Arizona univeristy colleagues who protest this as an unjust law and we agree to boycott Arizona venues until the law is repealed.
The Executive Committee is investigating alternative sites and we look forward to successful meetings in 2011 and 2012.
