Five years ago, the FMLN party became the first progressive government in El Salvador’s history. The FMLN has instituted free school supplies and meals, a national adult literacy program, price reduction of medicine, and legislation promoting equality for women. All of these gains are currently under threat with the U.S. backed right wing oppressive party in El Salvador trying to take control.
Come learn about what is at stake in the February 2014 elections.
Guest Speaker: Francisca Iraheta Romero, who is a school principal and union organizer with ANDES 21 de Junio, the National Association of Salvadorian Educators, the first teachers’ union in El Salvador. ANDES members suffered tremendous repression during El Salvador’s civil war, because teachers spoke out against the military dictatorship. Today, ANDES works to implement peace-centered approaches to education, and struggles against privatization.
