For decades, the United States government has imposed economic and military policies in México and Central America that have resulted in mass displacement and family separation. Rather than change its policy, the US has a dangerous new plan: to stop migrants and asylum seekers from leaving their countries of origin, no matter the cost.
Join Seattle CISPES for a discussion on the root causes of forced migration and the impact of US-sponsored border militarization on the region. We will be joined by:
*Moisés Gómez, professor and researcher at the Central American University (UCA) and part of the Jesuit Migration Network El Salvador
*Maru Mora with NWDC Resistance/Resistencia al NWDC
*Wendy Pantoja with NWDC Resistance/Resistencia al NWDC
Come learn how Salvadoran and local groups are resisting detention, deportation, and militarization; and join the fight for the lives and rights of migrants!
