My work has been featured in El BeiSMan, The Yucatan Times and San Miguel Times in México, Agúzate, AlterNet, In These Times magazine, Jacobin, The Crime Report, The North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), Business Insider, InSight Crime and the Security Assistance Monitor’s blog, a project of the Center for International Policy.
