Latin Pulse: 6.05.2015

Violence provides the central theme this week on Latin Pulse as the program looks at troubles in Colombia and El Salvador. In Colombia, as the country's civil war turns the corner on 51 years of pain, the peace process seems stalled as violence escalates in the war.  In El Salvador, violence levels are higher than they have been in more than 20 years.  The news segment of the program covers how women demonstrated across South America this week to call attention to the high levels of violence aimed at them and the need for laws to combat the problem.

The program includes in-depth interviews with:

Winifred Tate of Colby College; and
Hector Silva of the Center for Latin American & Latino Studies (CLALS) at American University.

Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell; 
Producer: Jim Singer; and
Production Assistant: Sierra Hancock.
