Anti-Mining activist murdered - El Salvador (CISPES reports)

Alexis, spokesperson for CISPES (Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador) tells us the story of Marcelo Rivera, a community activist who led the movement to stop Pacific Rim mining company from despoiling the countryside near a number of peasant communities in El Salvador. The manner of his death suggest involvement of elements of the ARENA party, and the local police strangely reluctant to investigate the circumstances of his disappearance and murder.
