The collection ‘Mario Payeras’ at the CAMeNA holds documents collected by Mario Payeras, writer, poet, co-founder of the Guatemalan guerrilla group EGP, and counterinsurgent military analyst on behalf of the EGP from whom he eventually split due to political and ethical differences.
The collection Jorge Turner holds materials on a key theme of the CAMeNA, politically engaged and committed journalism. This topic unfolds within the context of mega-projects – in this case, the Panama Canal. The specific legal framework brings into the focus rights activism, de- and neo-colonization, and political organizing as revolutionary processes and democratization.
Collection K consists of the archive of the Commission of Solidarity with Family Members of Prisoners and the Disappeared in Argentina, CoSoFam.

The collection I – Identity, diversity, dissidence and sexual rights (1936-2011) – brings together archival material collected by organisations that have been, and still are, crucial to the struggle for LGBT rights in Mexico, and to the deep cultural transformations that embed these rights within an everyday context.
