Interview with Burke Stansbury, Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES), for Fighting FTAs


A 17-minute interview with Burke Stansbury of the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES) that outlines the projected impacts of the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) on the people of El Salvador and Central America. This interview contextualizes the CAFTA agreement within the historical context of the U.S. role in Central America dating back to the 1980’s and into the 1990’s as the U.S. attempted to secure political control over the region through fueling armed conflict. Additionally this interview addresses the contemporary reality of the economy within Costa Rica and the ways in which local agricultural and industries would be impacted by massive imports of U.S. goods and a strengthened role of multinational corporations in the developing economy. — Stefan Christoff
