  • Youth gangs in El Salvador - Marked for life

    In Central America, the spiral of violence and crime among young people is a very complex problem that the state can not solve on their own. Lack consensus and consistency between the various measures covering police and judicial intervention, education, employment opportunities and health, among others. The gangs are the best structured youth organization. In El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, where the problem is alarming, government responses point strongly towards measures and repressive laws. "This strategy has been counterproductive. The bands are better organized as a reaction to the harsh police action. Since 2005 Cordaid is working Central America to manage youth violence in Guatemala and El Salvador. Have a look at our current projects in El Salvador: - Parks and Sport for Y...

  • El Salvador Documentary - Fundación CINDE (english subtitles)

    www.fundacioncinde.org CINDE is a non-profit organization that works in education from the first stages of childhood in San Salvador (El Salvador) in two districts of the poorer urban zone of the city: Soyapango and Mejicanos. These zones share similar characteristics: overpopulation, unemployment, informal trade concentrations on streets and the absence of childcare programs. These districts have a strong gang presence and high levels of violence. The work of CINDE is aimed at sectors of the Salvadoran population that live in poverty and exclusion, a population that cannot afford a basic hamper and therefore cannot meet many of its needs. It is a population living in a stressful environment in which violence and domestic abuse are commonplace.

Eng/Span/Nat In El Salvador, US style street gangs have become a major problem for the authorities in the capital. The violent tactics, rackets and rituals that are the hallmark of these gangs have been imported with Salvadorans returning from the U.S. This isn't a gangland scene from a gangster movie or a street scene from one of the tough, urban jungles of the U.S. It's an initiation rite to a street gang in San Salvador: an example of a an increasingly common form of violence among young unemployed men in the poor neighborhoods of the Salvadoran capital. The children of El Salvador's lost decade - the sons and daughters of rebels, soldiers and immigrants - have found solace in violent Los Angeles-style street gangs that have taken root here. In exclusive footage shot by Associated Press Television in San Salvador last week, gang members tell their story and graphically show how violent the family of gangs can be. There are two main gangs in El Salvador. The Mara Salvatrucha - local slang for Salvadoran gang - and Mara 18. Both gangs originated in Los Angeles. APTV obtained a unique window into their life. SOUNDBITE: "I believe that we were born to be in the gang. We are a family and we take care of ourselves." SUPER CAPTION "El Mexicano" Member of Mara Salvatrucha El Salvador endured more than 12 years of bloody civil war. It pitted the Farabundo Marti Liberation Army (FMLN) against the U-S-financed Armed Forces. The war ravaged the countryside and forced thousands of Salvadorans to flee to the United States. Peace brought with it the return of many exiles that had lived and had children who were brought up in the unforgiving streets of Los Angeles. SOUNDBITE: I was 12 years old when I started in the Mara Salvatrucha. For me my "barrio" is like my family now. They help us when we need something. When you feel alone, they explain. That is why we are here, we are together. SUPER CAPTION: El Cachis Leader of the Mar a Salvatrucha There are more than 200 small gangs in El Salvador that revolve around La Mara Salvatrucha, and Mara 18. The government has yet to set up any programs to help these young Salvadorans.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Joya de Ceren is an UNESCO World Heritage Site in El Salvador. This site is considered the “Pompeii of the Americas.” In 590 AD a nearby volcano, Loma Caldera, erupted and buried the village under 14 layers of ash. The villagers were apparently able to flee in time – no bodies have been found – although they left behind utensils, ceramics, furniture, and even half-eaten food in their haste to escape. 2. On July 14, 1969, Honduras and El Salvador went to war. The 100 hour war took 4000 to 6000 lives, 12,000 were wounded, and 50,000 people rendered homeless The cause was ostensibly the World Cup matches between Honduras and El Salvador qualifying for Mexico ’70. As a result of existing tensions being exacerbated by these matches, on 14 July 1969 the two countries began the 100-hour-long war known as the Football War. 3. The civil war in the country took place from 1980 to 1992. During the period, almost 75,000 lives were lost. Economic inequality was the reason for the war. The full-fledged civil war lasted for more than 12 years and saw extreme violence from both sides. It also included the deliberate terrorizing and targeting of civilians by death squads, the recruitment of child soldiers, and other violations of human rights, mostly by the military. 4. The country’s history begins with the 1st century BC, at the time Salvador was inhabited by tribes of the Maya. The ruins of Tazumal on the territory of the country, there are the ancient building structures of the Maya, which are considered important for the study of this period. 5. Izalco is a stratovolcano on the side of the Santa Ana Volcano. Izalco erupted almost continuously from 1770 (when it formed) to 1958 earning it the nickname of "Lighthouse of the Pacific", and experienced a flank eruption in 1966. Its brilliant flares were clearly visible for great distances at sea, and at night its glowing lava turned it into a brilliant luminous cone. 6. Before the Spanish conquest, the Pipil people established their capital, Cuzcatlan, near the current location of San Salvador. Not much is known about Cuzcatlan, as it was abandoned by its inhabitants in an effort to avoid Spanish rule. Gonzalo de Alvarado and Diego de Holguín occupied the empty settlement and began to develop it. Since then the town changed location twice, in 1528 and 1545. 7. El Salvador lies along the Pacific Ring of Fire, and is thus subject to significant tectonic activity, including frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity. El Salvador is home to 22 volcanoes, but only 6 of them are considered active.
