Statement to the Press, May 4, 2007

We represent the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, a U.S.-based grassroots organization that has worked to support the Salvadoran people for the last 27 years. Our group represents eight cities in the United States as well as Germany and Denmark, and is made up of workers from the non-profit, healthcare and technology sectors, as well as artists, students, scientists, and teachers. Throughout the last seven days, we have been meeting with unions, students, women�s groups, vendors, economists, legislators, and the Salvadoran Human Rights Office. We participated in International Worker�s Day on May 1 in the streets of San Salvador alongside Salvadorans creating positive change and demanding a stop to government repression.
