CUPE members across Canada have helped the people of El Salvador win their campaign against privatization of the health care sector. Letters and e-mails of international solidarity contributed to the pressure on the government to back away from plans to dismantle the public health care system.

Earlier this month, after mass demonstrations in San Salvador, the government passed legislation that guarantees health services will not be privatized.

The Salvadoran slogan Se puede, se debe! We can, we must! is useful in our fight in Canada to save our health care services.
