Blogpost

by Burke Stansbury, CISPES Executive Director

You may have seen or heard a news report recently titled "Grassroots Organization Accused of Being Foreign 'Agent' of Salvadoran Leftists" and wondered if the year were actually 1986. Back then, CISPES was illegally targeted by the largest FBI Internal Securityinvestigation of the Reagan era, and our handling of that particular incursion by the FBI was a major triumph of the Central American solidarity movement. So the U.S. government would never dare return tothe tactics used during the infamous FBI infiltration of CISPES , right?

Wrong!
