Tuesday, May 31 Capitol Calling Party: The Progressive Wave in
Latin America

As Chair of the Ninth Summit of the Americas, the United States refuses to allow Cuba, Venezuela or Nicaragua to participate in the June meeting in Los Angeles. In response, Mexico says it won’t participate either. Sounds like the summit – a huddle of arms buyers & free market cheerleaders – could be a bust. Enter the People’s Summit, a grassroots alternative, slated for June 8-10th, also in LA. The People’s Summit will include discussions of the changing landscape in Latin America, where progressives in Chile and Honduras are winning elections to challenge neoliberalism, militarism and privatization.

Join us on CODEPINK Congress for a discussion with special guests Manolo de los Santos of The People’s Forum and Francesca Emanuele of the Center for Economic and Policy Research. This call will also be hosted by Leonardo Flores, who is a Latin America campaign coordinator with CODEPINK.
