Interview with Lara Pullin shortly after news that ultra-right wing death squads in El Salvador had returned, murdering the family of the famous FMLN radio announcer who went by the code name of Mariposa. Mariposa was the teenage announcer on the clandestine guerilla Radio Venceremos, that evaded capture during the 12 years of the civil war in El Salvador during the 1970s and 1980s, and boosted the morale of the guerillas who fought the US backed military (to the tune of 2 million $US a day) to a stalemate. Although the right wing ARENA party, whose leaders and founders financed death squads, assassinated archbishops, and ordered the massacre of entire villages finally recognised the FMLN as a legally constituted political party in 1992, when peace was declared, the situation in El Salvador today seems to have reverted to the worst days of the so-called civil war, with police firing on demonstrating students, and, as in the case of Mariposa, death threats and murder by Death Squads, returning as a tried and true tactic of the Right wing neo-conservatives. Hear how the friends of legendary radio announcer Mariposa are reacting to the news of the gruesome murder of her parents, and a wave of repression sweeping the long suffering people of El Salvador.
