ANTICONQUISTA accepts submissions for articles, books, podcasts, videos and social media memes that help us expose imperialism in Latin America and the Caribbean. We’re also looking for submissions that highlight revolutionary movements resisting capitalist-imperialist oppression in the region.
All submissions should be as relatable, accessible and concise as possible for our target audience: the Latin American and Caribbean diaspora. They should also adhere to our political line, which is grounded in communist, anti-imperialist, anti-racist, Third Worldist and pan-Latin American thought.
Submissions can provide commentary on current events, history, politics, philosophy, economics, sociology, culture, science, etc.
Please send all submissions to: email@example.com
