En los años setenta el gobierno Salvadoreño de la derecha inció un periodo de represión brutal en contra de grupos y personas que participaron en las protestas publicas y otras formas de “actividades subversivas,” usando secuestros o “desapariciones forzadas,” tortura y asesinatos como metodos para intimidarlos y mantenerlos en silencio. Esto periodo duró hasta los años noventa. El Comité de Madres de los Desaparecidos y Asesinatos de El Salvador (Co-Madres) fue fundado por mujeres buscando a sus hijos desparecidos. Las Co-Madres han trabajado incansablemente ye sin temor por los ultimos 33 años para documentar y dununciar las desaparaciones y asesinatos. Ellas continuarán su misión hasta que los casos sean traidos a la justicia, con el refrán: “Podemos perdonar, pero no podemos olvidar.”

In the 1970s the right-wing Salvadoran government initiated a period of brutal repression against any group or individual that participated in public protest or other so called “subversive activities,” using abduction or “disappearance,” torture and assassination as methods to intimidate the public into silence. This lasted through the 1990s. The Committee of the Mothers of the Disappeared and Assassinated of El Salvador (Co-Madres) was formed by women seeking their missing children. The Co-Madres have worked tirelessly and fearlessly over the past thirty-three years to document and denounce the disappearances and murders. They will continue their mission until these cases are brought to justice, saying, “We can forgive, but we cannot forget.”

Seattle’s International Working Women’s Day for Palestine and Beyond

“We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings in Gaza and those among our community who are directly and indirectly affected by the current war and genocide by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. Passive observation of the horrors of bombings, genocide, and prolonged apartheid is not our way. We must rise and firmly proclaim that Palestinian Liberation is a Feminist Imperative.” – Feminists for Jina Seattle
