Three teachers assassinated in UCRES region
Dear UCRES Sisters and SHARE supporters,
I regret to write you under these circumstances, but unfortunately, violence is all-too-often a part of daily life, reality in El Salvador.
On Monday evening, April 19th, two teachers and the director of El Ángel school in San Juan Opico, municipality neighborhing San Pablo Tacachico, were kidnapped, shot and killed. Classes were immediately suspended and marches took place in the area to protest ongoing violence and impunity. Indignation and fear are palpable.
Scroll below to read the UCRES press release along with a letter of condemnation, condolensce and solidarity drafted by SHARE. We would like to send this to UCRES and communities as soon as possible, ideally tomorrow. PLEASE let me know (tedde@share-elsalvador) as soon as you are able whether we can add your parish, school or committee signature to this letter, and circulate this information within your community. As we get more information on this case, we will be sure to pass it along.
Thank you for your accompaniment in the joyful and sorrowful times,
Tedde and the SHARE El Salvador team
