DC Community Film Screening: El Salvador: Another Vietnam

December 02, 2017 at 4pm - 6pm

Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a documentary film screening and political discussion about U.S. intervention in El Salvador and the modern immigration crisis. Nearly 200,000 immigrants from El Salvador currently live and work in the United States with Temporary Protected Status, an immigration status that the Trump administration has stated it plans to revoke. Approximately 20,000 Salvadoran TPS holders live in Maryland.

What is the history of U.S. intervention in El Salvador, a tiny central american nation, smaller in area than New Jersey?

El Salvador: Another Vietnam, examines the beginnings of the Civil War in El Salvador, which spanned from 1980 to 1992, in light of the Reagan administration's decision to "draw the line" against communism in Central America. Archival material offers an overview of U.S. military and economic policy in Central America since 1948. Released in 1981, El Salvador: Another Vietnam was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary.
