        Intervention In Venezuela] is this coming Thursday,
        February 10, 2005 @ 7:00 p.m. With the U.S.-sponsored
        escalating intervention against the democratically
        elected government of Venezuela -- and the attacks on

        we plan and organize to defend the country and its
        democracy.

            Come be a witness to history as we join the Salvadoran
            social movement, progressive unions, and the leftist
            FMLN party in their inspiring celebration of May Day �
            International Workers Day. May 1st is more than
            just a holiday in El Salvador; it signifies national
            and international consciousness, conviction, and
            solidarity. Its signifies the rallying cry
            "The workers, united, will never be defeated!"

            In March 2004 the right-wing ARENA party stole the
            Presidential Elections with the help of US government
            intervention. In December 2004 they unconstitutionally
            ratified CAFTA, the Central American Free Trade
            Agreement, surrounding the national assembly with riot
            police to keep protestors out.

            The social movement and unions are calling for our
            solidarity NOW more than ever!

            On this delegation we will meet with:

            * The Popular Social Block (BPS), a coalition of
            organizations on the
            frontlines of the struggle against CAFTA and
            privatization.

            * The Women's Secretariat of the FMLN who is fighting
            hard for the rights of women in Salvadoran society

            * An FMLN mayor and see the alternative vision of
            development in action

            * And, we will participate in a wide variety of May
            Day activities
            organized by our partners in El Salvador including:
            -- The BIG May Day march
            -- A press conference where we demand respect for
            workers rights

                  CISPES-LA DENOUNCES APPOINTMENT OF JOHN NEGROPONTE;
                  CALLS FOR VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN TO BLOCK CONFIRMATION
                  The appointment of career diplomat John Negroponte
                  by President Bush to be the the Director of National
                  Intelligence brings back sad and shocking memories to
                  those who were active in the Central America struggles
                  of the 1980's, while Negroponte was ambassador to
                  Honduras.
                  The appointment, on live television early Thursday
                  morning, stunned the solidarity and peace movements.
                  Negroponte was linked to human rights abuses in
                  Central America and has been dogged by credible
                  testimony that he ignored the use of torture during
                  the contra war against Nicaragua.
                  The appointment calls for Senate confirmation and
                  CISPES is suggesting phone calls to the U.S. Senate
                  calling for a no vote on confirmation. The
                  Congressional switchboard is 202-224-3121 and then a
                  request to speak to Sen. Boxer or Sen. Feinstein.
                  In addition to his work with the Nicaraguan Contra
                  army, Negroponte helped conceal from Congress the
                  murder, kidnapping and torture abuses of a
                  CIA-equipped and trained Honduran military unit,
                  Battalion 3-16. No mention of these human rights
                  abuses ever appeared in State Department Human Rights
                  reports from Honduras. The Baltimore Sun reported
                  that Efrain Diaz Arrivillaga, then a delegate in the
                  Honduran Congress and a voice of dissent, told the Sun
                  that he complained to Negroponte on numerous occasions
                  about the Honduran army's human rights abuses. Rick
                  Chidester, a junior embassy official under Negroponte,
                  reported to the Sun that he was forced to omit an
                  exhaustive gathering of human rights violations from
                  his 1982 State Department report.
                  Sister Laetitia Bordes went on a fact-finding
                  delegation to Honduras in May, 1982, to investigate
                  the whereabouts of 32 Salvadoran nuns and women of
                  faith who fled to Honduras in 1981 after Archbishop
                  Oscar Romero's assassination. Negroponte claimed the
                  embassy knew nothing, but in 1996, Negroponte's
                  predecessor Jack Binns reported that the women had
                  been captured, tortured and them crammed into
                  helicopters from which they were tossed to their
                  deaths.

                    WORKING PEOPLE IN THE NEO- LIBERAL ERA
                    Looking for a deeper analysis of 21st century
                    capitalism

                    We live in a time of war abroad and economic attacks
                    at home. Regulations that were once supposed to
                    protect our environment, health, and safety are being
                    eroded as public health, education, and retirement
                    programs are all on the chopping block. Good jobs are
                    disappearing, wages and benefits are declining, and
                    the minimum wage is lower (in real dollars) than it
                    was 25 years ago. What's going on with working people
                    and labor in this neo-liberal era? Is this just the
                    climate of the times? Is it globalization? Is it a
                    result of conscious policies? Are there alternatives?

                    This series will examine these happenings, questions
                    and more in five thoughtful and participatory sessions
                    based on our collective experiences and readings.

                    STUDIES FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE is a Los Angeles based
                    group of socialist minded activists that coordinates
                    study sessions on the history, nature, problems, and
                    complexities of 21st century capitalism.� Our mission
                    is:

                    *
                    To provide an inclusive and respectful space for the
                    discussion, debate, and systemic and multidisciplinary
                    analysis of capitalism that uses popular,
                    participatory, and collective learning.�
                    * To create an educational atmosphere that bridges
                    activism and study.�
                    * To encourage participants to use this learning not
                    only for their own intellectual development, but also
                    as a means for generating power for political and
                    social change in their communities and for creating
                    viable democratic socialist alternatives to the
                    capitalist system.
