Romero & the violence of today

In May the late archbishop of San Salvador, Monseñor Óscar Romero, was beatified in the Catholic church – the precursor to official sainthood. But 35 years after he was shot dead for his stand for the poor and against the violence of El Salvador’s military regime, his followers still struggle. In the program Latino USA on U.S. National Public Radio (NPR) I tell the story about Romero and the church’s fighters against violence of today, when the country sees the highest murder rates since the civil war. The piece can be listened to here. There is also a photo gallery by Encarni Pindado.
