With Venezuela continuing to defend its social advances in the face of permanent right-wing attacks, Cuba entering a new era of closer relations with the United States despite the ongoing blockade, and Colombia edging closer to a peace deal while trade unionists continue to be killed, we are at a crucial moment for social struggles in Latin America.
