Join CODEPINK for a discussion to explore US Policy in Central America Past and Present
Alexis Stoumbelis, Organizational Coordinator for the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El salvador (CISPES) will discuss current U.S. policy in El Salvador and Central America. We hear a lot in the media about the migrant exodus from Central America but less about what role U.S. policy – past and present – plays in creating unlivable conditions in the region. How do U.S. policies – from economic development to security aid – exacerbate the very conditions they claim to “solve”? What is the political landscape in Central America today and what are the demands of popular movement organizations in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras?
