El Salvador: Reactions to Change and Communities Coming Together for Peace over Violence

Saturday, October 9, 2010, 9:30 AM – noon

The Cambridge-El Salvador Sister City Project is holding an open program for people to hear from German Gonzalez about what is happening today in El Salvador, and then from activists from sister city communities across the U.S. While there is an ominous new pattern of violence in El Salvador attempting to destabilize the current progressive government, there are powerful and creative community efforts to respond.
