Chicago event: Celebrate the triumph of Democracy in El Salvador - July 8

After centuries of violent inequality and repression, a dozen years of armed struggle against a brutal, U.S.-backed military, and two decades of rule by the right-wing ARENA party, the Salvadoran people elected the first leftist president in their country’s history on March 15th, 2009. President Mauricio Funes of the FMLN takes office on June 1st, bringing El Salvador into a growing community of Latin America nations seeking to chart their own, independent economic and political course.

CELEBRE EL TRIUNFO DE DEMOCRACIA EN EL SALVADOR!

Después de siglos de anos de lucha armada en contra de un ejercito cruel, que contó con el apoyo de Estados Unidos, y dos décadas en el poder del partido derechista AREA, el pueblo salvadoreño eligió el 15 de marzo de 2009 a su primer Presidente izquierdista en la historia del país. El Presidente Mauricio Funes del FMLN tomó el poder el primero de junio, llevando a El Salvador a ser parte de la creciente comunidad de naciones Latinoamericanas que están buscando liderar independiente su propia economía y curso político. Únete con nosotros para aprender sobre la nueva plataforma, planes y estrategias del nuevo gobierno del FMLN & para aprender como NOSOTROS en los Estados Unidos podemos apoyar el fortalecimiento de la democracia REAL en El Salvador!
