This true story tells how twenty years after British troops died for democracy in the Falklands War, a British citizen would be forced to flee the Falklands to escape political corruption and death threats, to seek democracy and freedom of speech in Argentina. When a British biologist dared to connect the starvation of 5 million penguins to commercial fishing that was making the Falklands elite rich, a deadly game of cat and mouse was unleashed. Bungled attempts to deport, imprison and kill Bingham, landed the Falkland Islands Government in the Supreme Court, which ruled that the Governor, Attorney General, Chief Executive and Executive Council had committed acts of human rights abuse that were “morally and constitutionally indefensible”. When the Falklands Government stated in public that they were not going to be stopped by the Supreme Court ruling, Bingham was forced to seek safety in Argentina. It is good to know that British troops did not die in vain.

Each chose to respond in the language of their choice (English, Spanish, Spanglish). The translation into their other languages (English, Spanish, and/or their indigenous language) is included in the back of the book. Nin Solis visited each participant and took photographs of their homes and neighborhoods, as well as a portrait of each returning 2Otro Dreamer3. The photographs offer a distinct but parallel reading of the physical and personal spaces in which these young people are crafting their adult lives in the aftermath of return, whether voluntary or forced."--Llosotrosdreamersthebook.com website.
