Genocide in El Salvador


  • Vicente Navarro





As explained in the report which follows, Dr. Navarro, Professor of Public Health at The Johns Hopkins University, was a member of the Tribunal on El Salvador which met in Mexico City on February 9-11. The full report of the Tribunal, together with supporting documents and legal argumentation, will be published by the secretariat of the Tribunal, but unfortunately this will take time and money. Meanwhile, the situation in El Salvador both domestically and internationally becomes graver with every day that passes. In these circumstances, and since there was a total blackout in the U.S. media on the work of the Tribunal, and even on its very existence, we are taking the unusual course of publishing this summary report by one of its members on the hearings and findings of the Tribunal. Correspondence concerning the Tribunal and its activities should be addressed to: Permanent Tribunal of the Peoples, Via Dogana Vecchia 5, 00186 Rome, Italy. Dr. Navarro closes his report with an urgent appeal to readers to make known its contents as widely as possible and to do everything within their power to halt the genocide now taking place in El Salvador. We strongly support this appeal and call attention to the recently formed Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES). National headquarters are in Washington (P.O. # 12056, Washington, D.C. 20005. Tel.: 1-202-887-5019). The New York Committee is located at 853 Broadway, New York, N.Y. 10011. Tel.: 1-212-473-4848. At the time of writing in early March over 100 local committees have been formed around the country. For further information contact the Washington office. —The Editors
