#LASCWeds talk: Another Brick in “The Wall”

The next #LASCWeds talk, facilitated by Eimhin O’Reilly,  will look at the United States in Central America from Truman to Trump. As Trump dismantles DACA and moves ever closer towards building his wall on the Mexican border, it will explore the impact of US policy in the region from the Cold War to today. Focussing on economic, drug, and foreign policy, this session will examine the American origins of the crime, insecurity and immigration Trump has often blamed on Latin Americans, while exploring the many ways in which Trump’s virulent rhetoric is nothing new, but rather a continuation of nearly 70 years of misgivings and prejudices.

It will take place Wednesday 27 September, 7.00 - 9.00pm in Comhlamh, 12 Parliament Street, Dublin 2.
