Co-Madres poster

by Nicole Schulman Author and Justseeds Author

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.”
