Underreported: El Salvador and the “Suchitoto 13”

Thursday, August 02, 2007

On the second part of Underreported, Mike Ring, Former National Director of US-El Salvador Sister Cities, joins Maj Fiil to talk about the case of the “Suchitoto 13.” These 13 anti-privatization protesters, including one journalist, were arrested on July 2 during a nonviolent protest in Suchitoto. They were subsequently detained under a new anti-terrorism statute, and it remains to be seen if the charges will stick or if the government will see the folly of its response.

Maj Fiil and Mike Ring
