DEFEND THE TRANSFORMATION

Elections Observation Delegation

March 3 - 17, 2012

CISPES invites you to join the Defend the Transformation elections observation delegation this March 3-17, 2012! The municipal and legislative elections scheduled for March 11, 2012, will mark the first time the people of El Salvador return to the polls since the historic presidential elections of 2009 when they voted to end centuries of right-wing rule. Click here for background on the elections in March. CISPES has a long solidarity relationship with the Salvadoran people. One way that we continue to support REAL democracy in El Salvador, and oppose US economic, military, and political intervention, is by bringing international observers delegations to El Salvador. You too can support free and fair elections and learn about the current situation in El Salvador by joining the CISPES delegation.

  • No Spanish language  is required and full international elections observer training will be provided.
  • The cost of the delegation will be $750 + your plane fare and fundraising support can be provided.

The application deadline is January 20, 2012.  We encourage you to get your application in as soon as possible. We hope that you can join us in March 2012 in El Salvador! Can’t make it in March?  CISPES will be coordinating a Health Brigade in late April/early May 2012 and a Literacy Brigade from June 23- July 15, 2012.
