Consul General of El Salvador
507 Polk Street, San Francisco
The people of El Salvador demand justice for the six Jesuits and the two women who were murdered on November 16, 1989. Nineteen years have passed and no one, including those who designed, ordered and executed that horrendous crime, has been held accountable. The ARENA governments have been accomplices in this act of impunity.
Fellow Jesuit colleague, Fr. Jon Sobrino, reflected on the murder: “It is important to know who killed them, but more important to know why it was possible to murder them with such impunity before, during and after the event. It is important to investigate the murders of the past, but much more important once and for all to stop murders happening in the future. It is important to solve notorious murders, but more important to clear up the mass murder of peasants who die anonymously. It is important that justice be done to my brother Jesuits in death, but much more important to keep them among us by putting to full use their achievements in life.”
The Salvadorean Community and volunteers of Clinica Martín-Baró (in memory of one of the Jesuits killed) in San Francisco invite all to attend.
