On this inaugural post for SalvaCultura, I want to pay tribute to what happened 39 years ago in El Salvador today. Four years ago, I had the privilege to visit and study at the University of El Salvador, and learn about one of the most important events leading up the the Salvadoran Civil War (1980-1992). The experience was very personal to me: my late uncle, a medical student at the time, was also an organizer and survivor of this student massacre. As a Salvadoran-American, participating in a commemoration of this event connected me to my people’s historical and collective resistance to oppression. 

A little background, the massacre was a violent response by the Salvadoran Government to a student protest at the University of El Salvador in the capital, San Salvador. The protest itself was in response to state violence against protesters in the western Salvadoran city of Santa Ana a few days prior. According to various sources, there were around 100 dead and over 23 injured. This is now seen as taste of what was to come since the civil war erupted in the following years; a civil war lead to a mass exodus of people which included my parents and siblings. 

So, I found myself in El Salvador on the 35th anniversary of this massacre in 2010, and it was chilling and inspiring experience to see Salvadoran students keeping the memory of history alive. Today and every year, Salvadoran university students take to the streets to commemorate the legacy of the fallen students. What is that legacy? Watch the video to watch out.

PS. I apologize for the unstable camera angles, I was very green back then; and also in my defense I wasn’t always the one holding the camera.

Also visit my new site: www.SalvaCultura.com for Central American issues, it’s still new and I’m looking for contributors.

Locked out of my apt. Can’t call casera. Feelin like shit

Locked out of my apt. Can’t call casera. Feelin like shit

#perfect day #:/

I feel a certain kind of melancholia.
Am I homesick or do I just want to have closeness with someone?
Is it both?
No sé
