On the show this week, Chris Hedges discusses the plight of everyday people victimized by the hardships of life in Mexico and Central America with author and journalist, J. Malcolm Garcia.

J. Malcolm Garcia’s news book is A Different Kind of War: Uneasy Encounters in Mexico and Central America. A collection of essays, informed by grief and anger, the book reveals the varied and distinctive voices of those families fleeing the violence of Honduras, Mexican reporters covering gang conflict in Juarez, and children living off the refuse of a landfill.

  2. Thanks Chris and Mr Garcia.
    American Dirt, a novel by Jeanine Cummins paints a grim picture (albeit from a middle class perspective) of the horrific plight of refugees from South America and Mexico.
    It’s worth a read.

  3. Thank you Mr. Hedges. Grateful to watch your tremendously compelling interviews; and your wonderful guests!

  4. These conditions are a form of terror. People of the Philippines subsist on similar hideous conditions. I have read science reports on the brain on poverty. My father grew up in terrible poverty in Montreal, Canada. He was born in 1910.
