Blows that kills the hopes of justice and peace in El Salvador.


Dear Friends, and relatives, I want to share with you the bitter experience lived on Monday the two of July in the neighborhoods of Suchitoto...

As a member of one Board of directors of a Rural Potable Water Project, and settler of the town of Suchitoto, we, the rural communities that benefit from three rural water projects were in a pacific march, protesting in the entrance of the deflections that lead to the communities San Rafael the Bermuda and Ciudadela Manuel Ungo, which are to a distance of 9 kilometers to Suchitoto;

It was seven in the morning when the first squad from the UMO arrived, a repressive body of the PNC. We that led the group that march pacifically, expressed ourselves, said to them that they should let us be in the place until the ten in the morning.

The head of the squad responded that he had you presidential orders presidential to repress all protest that occurred in the highway and that we had five minutes to disperse from the place; we gathered together and to wait for the police actions, they begun to send three devices with tear gases, we dispersed to towards both deflections, right away, they begun to shoot rubber bullets that impregnated in most of the people,

we were more women than men those who we were in the place.

We underwent the harmful effects of this gas, we ran to open fields while two helicopters that flew in circles shoting bursts to us and everything that were in the place left flying, also those of the UMO dropped to every five minutes tear gas devices with the objective of surround us in the place, we run towards the ciudadela in the group that I left running, taking shelter at first in a site where a building is in construction, in that place we could wash our faces and wet our clothes to calm a little the gas of pepper poisonous effects that they had sprayed at us, soon they continued machine-gunning the zone by air with a helicopter with the objective to capture us all.

Around eight o'clock in the morning, about 500 UMO police arrived at the site, they asked to gave ourselves or would be finished under the order of president Saca, we as a group of women representative liders went to the front of the anti-riot ones and tried we to make conscience to stop the repressed people, to let them know that they had been born with the peace accords, that they were just as we, part of the people, but they continued shooting gases devises and shooting at all those moved in that place, we ran to wash our faces and wet our clothes, continue asking them to let us expresing our protest; we happened to be in this situation around three hours more trying to avoid that anti-riot police riched the community, but the helicopter shoot at the houses near the field of ciudadela, destroying the corn fields of the near lands where some protesters had taken refuge, many of them suffered the bullet impacts, wounded and intoxicated, some women underwent under nervous crises and others felt inconscious.

Around 10:30 in the morning one of the police anti-riot got close to the group and stood in front of us and it sprinkled our faces with gas pepper, while the others started shooting gas devises and ruber bullets aginst us, all the group started runing towards the community, while I remain aiding a woman that was striked in the face and sprinkled with gas pepper, when I put her a wet rag in the her face and help her to walk her out from that place, I was surrounded by eight anti-riot police that unloaded all their hatred in my body, kicking me, striking my backs, my arms, my legs and my head with their battoons, while they shout at me:

"cheap, bitch" speaks now everything what you said to us, asshole gross, cabrona idiot speech now"

This act lasted oround ten minutes, until other police anti-riot arrived and pulled me out from my hair and took me out from the group that were hiting me, he then striked me in the face and it said to me,

That I was a "asshole" to be in these activities, and let me know that they are prepared to kill all terrorists that says were from social movement. He said that in this country democracy does not exist but the brutal force that they must impose to all the terrorists like us which we were there.

He striked me several times in the face, and broke my t-shirt I was wearing, broke my glases, they pulled my hair and threw water in my face.

I ask them why they were stricking my face since I had not insulted them, and that my only weapon was my voice.

He, the police responded to me "Yes, cheap bitch, we know that your weapon is your mouth", and striked me in the face again.

He struck my back and pushed me towards the highway; when arriving at the main street by where the buses run, he force me to seated in a great stone and it said to me "keep quiet asshole, cheap bitch", he then crossed the street towards where there was another group of police anti-riot.

Soon after, another police anti-riot came to strike my face, and push me in the street, like the other police anti-riot, said to me:

"asshole, cheap bitch where are the rest of your homos companions, they left the more bravest bitch alone, the one than it shouted more, the bravest, you are going to know what it means to confront us",

I was striked againg by him several times in the face and estomach, and left me lying in the street, after that, he went to talk the the rest of the police anti-riot, at these moments a car arrive and they stopped it, telling the driver that there was no passage to Suchitoto, the car turn around close where I was, It was in that instant that I jump in the back bed of the car to scape from that place.

wonded, intoxicated, I was looking for aid, kilometers ahead from these events that took place, I was help, I was given water to wash my face and pills me to calm the pain cause by the blows, they gave clothes to changed and I could leave the zone without being in danger.

ALL THE PREVIOUS STORY IS TRUE, STILL I HAVE THE BLOWS IN MY BODY, THE PAIN IS NOT ONLY FISICAL BUT MORAL, IT HURTS TO KNOW THAT AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS OF THE PEACE ACCORDS, IN THE I HAVE LOVED SO MUCH, STILL EXIST DARK AND ILL MINDS IN THE HIGH COMMANDS Of THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PNC, IMPLANTING TERROR AND IMPUNITY WITH THE ELITE GROUPS OF THE POLICE.

PLEASE FRIENDS AND RELATIVES: YOU, WHO ARE OUTSIDE OF THE COUNTRY OR THOSE WHO LIVE IN IN THE COUNTRY AND HAVE CONTACTS WITH INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS DENOUNCE THIS FACT, SINCE I CAN EXPRESSED WHAT HAPPENED, BUT THE REST OF THE PEOPLE THAT WAS CAPTURED, AT THIS MOMENT CAN NOT AND WE DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO THEM.

IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE RESPONSIBLE THE PRESIDENT SACA, THE MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR RENE FIGUEROA, TO THE DIRECT ONES OF THE PNC, RODRIGO AVILA, TO THE HEAD OF THE UMO, COMMISSIONER OMAR GARCIA FUNES, WHO COMMANDED THE ACTION FROM THE HELICOPTERO...

AS WELL AS THE PROCURADURIA OF HUMAN RIGHTS TO WHICH WAS ASK SUPPORT AND DID NOT COME TO THE PLACE, REFUSING TO VERIFY THE VIOLENCE FACTS THAT WERE OCCURRING AGAINST THE CIVILIAN POPULATION.

AS ORGANIZED WOMAN WHO REPRESENTS THE INTERESTS OF MANY RURAL FAMILIES WHO WE ARE AGAINST THE PRIVATIZATION Of THE WATER, SINCE WE THE RURAL AND POOR COMMUNITIES HAVE MANTAINED AND SUPPORT OUR PROJECT, WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS CONTINUED HUMILIATION, EXPROPIATING, AND VIOLENCENTLY RECLESS OUR ELEMENTARY AND CONSTITUTIONAL ELEMENTARY HUMAN RIGHTS.

LIKE YESTERDAY, TODAY AND ALWAYS SUCHITOTO IS RESISTING, FIGHTING AGAINST THOSE WHO WANT TO IMPOSE ACTIONS THAT GOES AGAINST THE DIGNITY OF THE RURAL FAMILIES.

IT IS NECESSARY TO SAY ENOUGH TO IMPUNITY, ENOUGH OF THE INSTITUTIONALIZED REPRESSION THAT ELITES GROUPS ELITES OF THE PNC EXERT AGAINST THE ORGANIZED CIVIL SOCIETY.

THANKS TO READ THIS MESSAGE, I DO NOT REQUEST SOLIDARITY SUPPORT ONLY FOR ME PERSONALLY BUT TO ALL THOSE AND ALL THOSE THAT WE DREAMED A DIFFERENT EL SALVADOR.
