Since 2009, survivors of human rights violations committed before and during El Salvador’s civil war have gathered each year to share their stories and demand justice for the crimes committed against them and their loved ones. This year, the Tribunal was celebrated in the community of Santa Marta in the department of Cabañas, target of a series of brutal scorched earth operations by the military of El Salvador during the 1980s.////

Desde el año 2009, los sobrevivientes de violaciones a los derechos humanos cometidas antes y durante la guerra civil en El Salvador se han reunido para compartir sus testimonios y pedir justicia por los crímenes sufridos. Este año, el Tribunal se celebró en la comunidad de Santa Marta, en el Departamento de Cabañas, que fue objeto de una serie de operaciones de “tierra arrasada” llevadas a cabo por fuerzas militares salvadoreñas durante los años ochenta.
