Menaced by gangs, El Salvador’s children are running for their lives

theglobeandmail.com — The last time Irma Avila's son was deported back to El Salvador, the officials who handed him over to her delivered a harsh rebuke: You're a terrible mother, they told her. You can't keep sending your child with the coyotes like this. Horrible things could happen to him on the trip to America.

RT @mattgallowaycbc: “If I send him, he may die. But if I keep him here, he will die.” @snolen's writing from El Salvador is so good. theglobeandmail.com/news/world/men…

For young female Salvadoran migrants, a unique set of horrors

theglobeandmail.com — Laura Campos watched in silent terror as her granddaughter got older. Cristina was a pretty child, with gold-flecked eyes and dimples. But around the time she turned 13, she was suddenly all cheekbones and long legs and tawny curls. Ms. Campos could see it, and she knew others could see it, and she knew it was a disaster.

Q&A with Stephanie Nolen, Latin America Bureau Chief. Ask her anything on Reddit

theglobeandmail.com — I cover Latin America for The Globe, from a base in Rio de Janeiro, a city that's all the things you've read about (or seen in the cartoon.) It's not all cocktails and bikinis - I write about Brazil's challenges with social inequality and violence.

Under siege: El Salvador’s state of chaos

theglobeandmail.com — Forty people were killed last Sunday in El Salvador. Forty-two on Monday, 43 on Tuesday, 30 on Wednesday, and on through the week. Even the brutal civil war in the 1980s never had a week like this one. A spasm of murderous violence has convulsed this Central American country and shows no sign of abating.

At a former leper colony in Brazil, survivors find a sense of belonging

theglobeandmail.com — Nivaldo Farias was 19, a trombone player with a scholarship to a national music school in Rio de Janeiro, when he noticed a big red spot on his chest. It was 1965. The doctor told him the spot - and another near his shoulder blade - was leprosy.

O Brasil por trás da aquarela

theglobeandmail.com — Quando Daniele de Araújo descobriu, há seis anos, que estava grávida, saiu decidida de sua pequena casa, numa rua de terra batida na Baixada Fluminense, morro acima. A trilha íngreme e verdejante que começa perto de onde ela mora não é longa, mas a área é controlada por traficantes de drogas, e, por isso, Daniele estava ansiosa enquanto caminhava.

Along the bumpy road to Rio 2016

theglobeandmail.com — With the next Summer Games only a year out, host city Rio de Janeiro remains in a state of uncertainty. Long-held environmental promises have fallen by the wayside, facilities are running behind schedule and violence remains a primary concern.

Brazil’s colour bind

theglobeandmail.com — When Daniele de Araújo found out six years ago that she was pregnant, she set out from her small house on a dirt lane in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro and climbed a mountain. It is not a big mountain, the green slope that rises near her home, but the area is controlled by drug dealers, so she was anxious, hiking up.
