Sofia Jarrín-Thomas is a freelance journalist with a focus on social movements, U.S. policy in Latin America, immigration, and indigenous rights. Currently she is working on the El Salvador Oral History Project in which she interviews and records the recollections of Salvadorans currently living in the Boston area.
Her most recently published interview is titled "Urban Guerrilla":
In the late 1970s, Mario Dávila became an urban guerrilla in San Salvador after he was exposed to the country's poverty as a church youth worker. In college, he saw many refugees--entire families who had fled the military's repression in the countryside--living in the school's classrooms and using the university's facilities. He became responsible for the armed security during marches, which were regularly repressed by the National Police and sharpshooters from buildings. Deaths were common during public protests. Students were often picked up and disappeared, including many of Mario's college friends.
Like many others, soon Mario became clandestine, left his family for their own protection, and worked with the FMLN as the government armed forces and the guerrilla battled for control. At the end of 1982, he moved to the United States where he continued to work for El Salvador by mobilizing to bring the situation in his country to light and eventually, for peace.
