CISPES Asks the Community to Join Delegation in El Salvador
According to the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador in the face of Trump & Co.’s white nationalist agenda, international solidarity is more important than ever.
“Not only do we need to strengthen cross-border relationships to fight the Trump agenda worldwide, our movements can learn a lot from the organizing strategies and tenacious struggle of El Salvador’s social movement.”
“This spring, we’re sending a delegation to accompany organized workers and the popular social movement at the massive International Workers’ Day March – can you join us?,” they ask the community who live in the Washington Metropolitan Area..
During the delegation, they will meet with movement leaders and members of the governing leftist FMLN party to:
• Understand the current social, economic and political context in El Salvador and the consequences of US foreign policy
• Hear first-hand about the impact of US attacks on migrants and refugees, including deportation and border militarization
• Visit new government projects to witness the FMLN’s vision for people-centered governance
• Learn about organizing strategies to confront corporate control and fight for structural change in the face of right-wing opposition
Dates: April 23, 2017 – May 4, 2017
