A talk by David Grosser, Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES).  A critical look at the new 'pacts' being made regionally, especially the Alliance for Prosperity and its impact.  

A presentation about the content of “Plan Colombia for Central America”/ the Alliance for Prosperity. As a reaction to the unprecedented number of children who arrived in the US in the summer of 2014, Vice-President Biden proposed a new “Plan Colombia for Central America” in order to stop the flow of migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Come find out the details of what the proposal actually contains and how you can help organize and support resistance to this disastrous aid package.

David Grosser has been a member and leader in CISPES’ solidarity activities and delegations to Central America since 1995, as well as an observer to the recent 2014 presidential elections.
