While the death squad style torture and murder of an anti-mining activist Marcelo Rivera last July is still being assimilated another anti- mining community figure has been assassinated shortly before Xmas. Ramiro Rivera (no relative) narrowly escaped death last August when he received 8 bullet wounds. Although he was provided with police protection he was ambushed and killed on December 20. Alexis, of CISPES (Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador) reports on this latest travesty for community radio.
