AQ Podcast: Riots in the U.S. and Aftershocks in Latin America

Civil rights are being put to the test throughout the hemisphere.
Nikita Kataev

Scenes of rioting and police brutality in the U.S. are a reminder of the deepening crisis across the Americas. Pressures on civil liberties are already high across the region, with fears that leaders may be using the pandemic as a pretext for harsh policies. To discuss the state of human rights in the Americas at this tense time, AQ‘s Editor-in-chief Brian Winter speaks to Human Rights Watch’s José Miguel Vivanco.
