In case you've missed out on the news, the leftist opposition party FMLN won yesterday's presidential election in El Salvador. This is a significant shift in the relation of power in the Central American region, the US has lost its last firm ally in the vicinity.
Amongst other issues, FMLN stands up for an independent foreign policy. Just as a reminder, the party took a strong position against the Gaza massacre. Their statement from December 28, 2008 can be read in full here (en castellano).
The purpose of this blog is to give commentary, news and other info on events, current and past.
This blog came about spontaneously (titled 'Gaza Peace n' Freedom') in the midst of the January 2009 Gaza Massacre, seeking to present links, photos and videos of a fraction of the multitude of protests occuring around the world with the objective of letting the people of Gaza know that they are not alone, letting the Israeli warmongers know that their crimes will not be forgotten.
