        CISPES-LA DENOUNCES APPOINTMENT OF JOHN NEGROPONTE; CALLS FOR VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN TO BLOCK CONFIRMATION The appointment of career diplomat John Negroponte by
        Message 3 of 30 , Feb 17, 2005
          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.

            When: �������Every other Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to
            1:00p.m.
            with time for mixing and refreshments

            STUDIES FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE is a Los Angeles based
            group of socialist minded activists that coordinates
            study sessions on the history, nature, problems, and

            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.
