FMLN at Peace and Justice Center

Hola, lovers of music and justice!
This Friday, June 19, Albuquerque will host a representative of the newly-elected government of El Salvador, William Hernández of the FMLN, and L@SOTR@S will sing.

The event will be a potluck supper at the Center for Peace & Justice, 202 Harvard, SE (at the corner of Silver), 6:30 PM. The suggested donation at the door is $5.

Most of you know that the FMLN has fought for justice for the people of El Salvador for many decades, and were probably bowled over and moved to tears like me when they won the presidential election in March.

Elated that we will host such an event here in Albuquerque, L@SOTR@S offered to play, and we will close out the evening with music.I hope you're able to come to this wonderful, heart-filling event. To put you 'in the mood,' here are some videos that have been making Mayr and me cry with joy since March, photos of the FMLN campaign and victory set to some appropriate music - incredible to see joy-filled rallies in places whose names we associated for so long only with massacres and heart-breaking oppression.

All the best,
