The Editorial Board is pleased to announce that political scientist Pedro Urruchurtu will collaborate with El American in a series of 6 articles in which he will analyze Latin America’s most important issues in an effort to bring awareness to the U.S. market.
“It is not the first time I collaborate for El American. In fact, I remember that I was one of the first to write for this outlet an article that I don’t forget called Without will, freedom won’t win. It is an explanatory piece about how freedom alone does not win,” Urruchurtu said.
“El American is a project I have bet on since day one. Its essence, its spirit, its raison d’être is more necessary than ever, plus it represents values and a genuine conviction in the fight for freedom. It also fights many evils we face. It is a space in which it will be a pleasure to focus on freedom issues, but specifically in Latin America.
