Latin America 2017 Conference
Over 500 people packed into the TUC’s Congress House in central London for one of the biggest and most important Latin America conferences in recent years, taking place in an environment of escalating intervention in the region from US President Donald Trump.

The Latin America Conference is the largest event of international solidarity in Britain, now in its thirteenth year, and is a key date in the trade union and labour movement calendar.

Conference guests heard from a wide range of speakers including a special video message from Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, and the acclaimed film director and campaigner Ken Loach; alongside many ambassadors, MPs, trade unionists, lawyers, academics, artists and campaigners.

The packed schedule included 24 seminars, two plenary sessions, a film festival, an art exhibition, the opportunity to browse solidarity stalls, and the conference culminated with a final rally in the main hall.
