  Jaime Rivera is an organizer who has been involved with
Salvadoran labor since the 1980s. His union, the Electrical Sector
Workers Union (STSEL), was involved in resistance to the repressive
dictatorship in the 80s and has been a leader in the fight against the
privatization of basic services like electricity.

STSEL is on the front lines of the fight against privatization in El
Salvador. A US-pushed Public- Private Partnership (P3) law currently
awaits debate in the Legislative Assembly and, if approved, the
downsized and restructured public electrical company would almost
certainly be one of the first public entities auctioned off, putting
its workers at risk of the firings, salary cuts and union-repression
that a private operator would bring with them.

He will talk about US and Salvadoran labor solidarity movements and
the impact of privatization in El Salvador. His experience organizing
for social justice is one you don't want to miss!
