Pacific Rim vs. El Salvador hearings begin today.

The preliminary hearings in the case between the El Salvadorian government and Canadian mining company Pacific Rim begins today. Claiming protection under regulations of CAFTA, the Central American Free Trade Agreement, Pacific Rim claims El Salvador is in violation of rules as it tries to limit what work it can do in the country. At stake? $77 million. International business precedent. Innocent lives. You can get much more information on this story than I’m able to provide at “Tim’s El Salvador Blog.”

Please keep the rights of the Salvadorian people in your thoughts and prayers as this international business case begins.
