Behind the Bukele Myth

Take a list to our live cast from El Salvador (in English) to bring you closer to the grim realities on the ground “Behind the Bukele Myth.”

The live cast brought together several experts, including John Guliano, director of the Tamarindo Foundation, a youth development center in Guarjila, Chaletenango. His (entirely innocent) co-director was arbitrarily arrested nearly three months ago and has been jailed and deprived of any semblance of due process ever since.

We were also joined by Noah Bullock of Cristosal, one of the leading Human Rights organizations in El Salvador. He gave us a picture of the deteriorating human and civil rights conditions countrywide.

Investigative journalists Michael Fox and Manuel Ortiz – both friends of and collaborators with Global Exchange also shared their experiences and insights. Global Exchange Human Rights director Ted Lewis moderated.
