Lara Pullin on the El Salvadoran elections Part 2
Lara talks about some of the details of the return of the Death Squads in El Salvador, and the incremental increase in their activities, including the assassination of a Mayor, and threats against a Public radio station that caters to the people, rather than the commercial media moguls.
She analyses possible reasons for the violent reaction of the right wing governing party. Is it possible that they might lose the next Presidential election. Does the influence of Venezuela allow political parties more scope to be independent of the interests of the US?

Picture: The Mayor, Wilbur Funes, assassinated several weeks ago by the resurgent Salvadoran Death Squads. Government prosecutors refuse to investigate this and other murders.
