El Salvador - are Death Squads for Real? - Lara Pullin reports

Lara Pullin with a weekly report, and just in case anyone hasn't realised it yet, the Salvadoran Death Squads are real, they are back, and they are sheltered by their former operatives and sponsors with government posts in the ARENA party.

One of 13 peasant activists who demonstrated against water privatisation laws has been assassinated.

Lara Pullin gives us the background on this latest travesty of human rights.
