He was displaced by the Civil War in the early 1980’s, where his El Tihuilote village was destroyed, forcing him to become a refugee at the age of nine. @TEDxSouthBank This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

    Nine-year-old Diego lives in Santo Tomás, El Salvador – a country with one of the world’s highest homicide rates. As part of a Unicef-supported initative, Diego is one of 130 children taking part in special art and culture workshops run in a local park, where he is taught photography, film, drawing and painting. Before this initiative there were no cultural activities for children in Santo Tomás. Diego credits the programme with building his self-esteem and vision for the future. "My dream for El Salvador is for there to be no street kids," he said. "If I were president, I’d like to open up a workshop for painting, art, drawing, guitar, photography and video.

In San Vicente, El Salvadorean doctors are working alongside a team of Mexican army doctors to take care of the hundreds of people left homeless and wounded. The main hospital in the town is overflowing with patients, so Mexican field doctors have set up a makeshift medical tent to attend the wounded. Doctors on site are concerned earth tremors felt since the earthquake may mean yet another earthquake is to come, bringing more misery and devastation.

Spanish/Nat Former street gang members in El Salvador have united to form a group offering health care and advice to violent gangs in the capital, San Salvador. Many members of the gangs, made up mostly of unemployed youths, grew up in the U-S after their parents fled the civil war in El Salvador. Having returned after the war, the youngsters brought the lessons learnt in the some of the crime-ridden cities of the U-S back to their homeland. 'Homies Unidos' hopes to help the youths find an alternative to their violent lifestyle. This is gang-controlled territory in San Salvador. But Claudia Reyes, better known as "La Guera", can move freely here because she brings medical care to the youths. She is welcomed by them because she also belongs to a gang. But "Homies Unidos" is a gang with a difference. Tired of being discriminated against and blamed for nearly all the crime that happens in the capital San Salvador, some rival gang members have got together to fight against the problem themselves. They formed the "Homies Unidos" group in the hope of giving young people an alternative to violence. "La Guera" comes to poor neighbourhoods like this, where young unemployed men have found solace in violent street gangs to give them medicine and advice about their health. Most of these young men grew up in the U-S after their parents fled the civil war in El Salvador. When they returned after the war, the youngsters brought the lessons learnt on the streets of some of the U-S' crime-ridden cities back to their homeland. They have no skills, no work and use a variety of drugs, including crack. The government has failed to set up any programmes to help them so far. The youngsters claim that it is difficult for them to get treatment in hospitals, where doctors and nurses are scared by their appearance. "La Guera", and others like her, act as links between the health system and the gang members. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) "I'm also a gang member and I have also suffered discrimination myself. These youngsters, who are the ones that need more help, are not covered by any of the health programmes provided by the government. These guys here do not get any vitamins nor any attention from the health centres or hospitals." SUPER CAPTION: Claudia Reyes, "La Guera", nurse and gang member One gang member said discrimination against them in mainstream society does remain strong. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) "Yes, we are discriminated against many times. Every time I've been there (hospital) they didn't see me. They had me waiting in the health centre for eight hours." SUPER CAPTION: Gang member, name not given Volunteers like Claudia Reyes get medicines from the local health centres and take them to the gang members. They also teach gang members how to prevent contagious diseases like AIDS, as well as conducting vaccination programmes. But "Homies Unidos" also teaches them about preserving the best aspects of gang life - solidarity, discipline and respect - while phasing out the worst, such as violence and drugs. Members of the gangs are responding well to the initiative.

Runtime: 1:13:57 698MB I make no apologies for the quality of the video. That said, the color is somewhat faded as though its a VHS of a broadcast. The audio is great though, makes you think Apocolypse Now, when you hear Martin Sheen start into his narration. By the way, I am told Ramone died in a major offensive by the government while this movie was in post production, along with a few others they show. I believe my one-eyed El Salvadoran friend when he tells me he fought alongside Ramone and shared many battles. Reviews: An evocative vision of a nation and its tragic civil conflict, IN THE NAME OF THE PEOPLE is the record of four filmmakers who secretly entered El Salvador, marched with a guerrilla column across the troubled country, and followed it into combat against government forces in San Salvador. The civil war is given a personal dimension as we meet the insurgents and their supporters - a guerrilla commander, a 12 year old messenger, a peasant family victimized by right wing death squads, and Charlie Clements, an American doctor working with the rebels. ** 1985 Academy Award Nominee, Best Feature Documentary ** Blue Ribbon Winner, 1985 American Film Festival "A clandestine documentary by American film-makers following eighteen months in the lives (and deaths) of guerrillas and peasants in the liberated areas of El Salvador. The subdued narration by Martin Sheen details the problems of daily life, food, weapons, recruitment, training, education, health and military actions." http://www.timeout.com/film/newyork/reviews/76105/In_the_Name_of_the_People.html I was amazed by the footage they provided of some of the terrible tragedies that happened in El Salvador.

El Salvador (Spanish: República de El Salvador, literally 'Republic of The Savior') is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. The country's capital city and largest city is San Salvador; Santa Ana and San Miguel are also important cultural and commercial centers in the country as well as Central America. El Salvador borders the Pacific Ocean on the west, and the countries of Guatemala to the north and Honduras to the east. Its easternmost region lies on the coast of the Gulf of Fonseca, opposite Nicaragua. As of 2009, El Salvador had a population of approximately 5,744,113 people, composed predominantly of Mestizos. The colón was the official currency of El Salvador from 1892 to 2001, when it adopted the U.S. Dollar. In 2010 El Salvador ranked in the top 10 among Latin American countries in terms of the Human Development Index and in the top 3 in Central America (behind Costa Rica and Panama), due in part to ongoing rapid industrialization. In addition, tropical forests and overall forest cover has expanded by nearly 20 percent from the year 1992 to 2010, making it one of the few countries experiencing reforestation. In October 1979 a coup d'état brought the Revolutionary Government Junta of El Salvador to power. It nationalized many private companies and took over much privately owned land. The purpose of this new junta was to stop the revolutionary movement already underway in response to Duarte's stolen election. Nevertheless, the oligarchy opposed agrarian reform, and a junta formed with young liberal elements from the army such as Gen. Majano and Gen. Gutierrez, as well as with progressives such as Ungo and Alvarez. Owing to pressure from the oligarchy, this junta was soon dissolved because of its inability to control the army in its repression of the people fighting for unionization rights, agrarian reform, better wages, accessible health care and freedom of expression. In the meantime, the guerrilla movement was spreading to all sectors of Salvadoran society. Middle and high school students were organized in MERS (Movimiento Estudiantil Revolucionario de Secundaria, Revolutionary Movement of Secondary Students); college students were involved with AGEUS (Asociacion de Estudiantes Universitarios Salvadorenos; Association of Salvadoran College Students); and workers were organized in BPR (Bloque Popular Revolucionario, Popular Revolutionary Block). The U.S. supported and financed the creation of a second junta to change the political environment and stop the spread of a leftist insurrection. Napoleon Duarte was recalled from his exile in Venezuela to head this new junta. However, a revolution was already underway and his new role as head of the junta was seen by the general population as opportunistic. He was unable to influence the outcome of the insurrection, and this resulted in the Salvadoran Civil War (1980--1992). On January 16, 1992, the government of El Salvador, represented by president Alfredo Cristiani, and the Frente Farabundo Martí para la Liberación Nacional (FMLN), represented by the commanders of the five guerrilla groups -- Shafick Handal, Joaquin Villalobos, Salvador Sánchez Ceren, Francisco Jovel and Eduardo Sancho, all signed the peace agreements brokered by the United Nations which ended the 12-year civil war. This event, held at the Chapultepec Castle in Mexico, was attended by U.N. dignitaries and other representatives of the international community. After signing the armistice, the president stood up and shook hands with all the now ex-guerrilla commanders, an action which was widely admired. The so-called Mexico Peace Agreements mandated reductions in the size of the army, and the dissolution of the National Police, the Treasury Police, the National Guard and the Civilian Defense, a paramilitary group. A new Civil Police was to be organized. Judicial immunity for crimes committed by the armed forces ended; the government agreed to submit to the recommendations of a Commission on the Truth for El Salvador (Comisión de la Verdad Para El Salvador), which would "investigate serious acts of violence occurring since 1980, and the nature and effects of the violence, and...recommend methods of promoting national reconciliation." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_salvador

Spanish/Nat The authorities in El Salvador are stepping up efforts to fight a spate of recent epidemics. Masked men with chemical guns are spraying trucks at the border and health officials are teaching rural residents some basic prevention methods. Health officials are continuing their battle against the epidemics that have hit El Salvador this year. Chemical guns spraying trucks have become an everyday site on the border. They are desperately trying to fight the insects which carry the diseases back and forth along the border. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Destroy or prevent the plagues of mosquitos, rats, or other animals that may transmit this disease." SUPER CAPTION: Jose Argumedo, Fumigation technician Over 700 people have already been infected by hemorrhagic conjunctivitis. The government is dispatching health officials to teach rural residents how to prevent conditions that may cause disease. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We need your collaboration in that you permit them health officials to come into your homes so they can carry out their teaching work." SUPER CAPTION: Health official Health officials are visiting many homes, urging people to disinfect their drinking water. Hemorrhagic conjunctivitis is spread by a virus. The disease causes severe irritation to the eyes and can make people weep blood. In extreme cases, it can damage the cornea and even cause blindness. The disease is transmitted through physical or close contact -- even using towels which have been handled by an infected person can spread the infection. SOUNDBITE: Spanish "What has been established is a sanitary ring in all of the border areas. Measures have been implemented to avoid the consumption of migratory birds, etc, we've made some calls to the community. As a government we had planned to lift the state of emergency decreed for hemorrhagic dengue since 1 November, but we've decided to maintain the state of emergency until we're past the new problems we're facing."

Nine-year-old Diego lives in Santo Tomás, El Salvador – a country with one of the world’s highest homicide rates. As part of a Unicef-supported initative, Diego is one of 130 children taking part in special art and culture workshops run in a local park, where he is taught photography, film, drawing and painting. Before this initiative there were no cultural activities for children in Santo Tomás. Diego credits the programme with building his self-esteem and vision for the future. "My dream for El Salvador is for there to be no street kids," he said. "If I were president, I’d like to open up a workshop for painting, art, drawing, guitar, photography and video. And I’d give all children all over the world health, happiness and an education."

Spanish/Nat XFA El Salvador is still reeling from the effects of Tuesday's earthquake, the second in less than a month. The earthquake measured six-point-six on the Richter scale and the death toll has risen to 276 people. In San Vicente, El Salvadorean doctors are working alongside a team of Mexican army doctors to take care of the hundreds of people left homeless and wounded. The main hospital in the town is overflowing with patients, so Mexican field doctors have set up a makeshift medical tent to attend the wounded. Doctors on site are concerned earth tremors felt since the earthquake may mean yet another earthquake is to come, bringing more misery and devastation. Meanwhile Spanish Queen Sofia visited an orphanage in San Salvador on Thursday with El Salvador's First Lady Lourdes Flores. The orphanage was founded following another devastating earthquake, in 1986, when thousands died, leaving many children orphans. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We have orders from our President to assist in this disaster and until we are ordered or another determination is made, we are not going to leave." SUPER CAPTION: Colonel Gales Piti, Head of Mexican delegation SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Up to now I think we are trying to control the situation but the tremors are continuing and with great intensity, so we are preparing ourselves for any possible earthquake as we had two days ago."
