El Salvador News April 14 - Lara Pullin On Line

Lara Pullin continuing her update on the steady increment of pressure on El Salvador from the US through the ARENA party, which is pushing the envelope of legality in repressing attempts by grass roots organisations to resist the push for ever more 'privatisation' - even to the point of using anti-terrorist laws against legitimate protest, and persecuting those who claim legal recourse against the perpetrators of new death-squad activities and homicides.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says no, and his voice is a visionary voice backed with oil resources that puts his vision outside and beyond the limitations and imaginative backwardness of corporate USA - and includes the real struggle against planetary climate change.
