      ~~~ CISPES MAY DAY DELEGATION TO EL SALVADOR~~~~

      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.

              CISPES is proud and pleased to endorse and encourage
              participation in this outstanding study series. We
              have participated in the series in the past. This
              in-depth analysis and study gives our work context and
              a foundation. Please register and get involved in
              this important study series to deepen our
              understanding of our work in the movement. We start
              Sunday, Mar. 6th. CISPES-L.A.


              Studies for Global Justice invites Community, Labor,
              Political, Environmental and Economic Justice
              Activists to a five session study series on:


              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.

              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.
