Boston DSA Forum: The Latin American Left Today

The astonishing progression of leftist election victories in Latin 
America-most recently in El Salvador-has surprised and dismayed 
Washington policymakers in recent years. Will these democratic left 
regimes and social movements have more breathing space with the Obama 
administration? Our speakers have long experience in Latin America as 
scholars and activists.
