March 1 CAFTA in El Salvador - implementation, protests, a challenge in the courts

Here are a bunch of articles on CAFTA being inaugurated today in El Salvador, mostly in Spanish. Protests continued for the second day in a row, and the FMLN presented a case before the Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of CAFTA (as Saca and some ministers had a big ceremony and patted each other on the back.) Meanwhile there were some attacks by the police and injuries to protesters yesterday, but today's actions were mostly peaceful, from what we've heard.
