Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

Dec 16, 2019

Part 4 of Red Library's Revolutionary Politics in Central and South America Series 

For part 2 of our discussion on Saul Landau's The Guerrilla Wars of Central America, we do a bit of critical reflection on Landau's analysis in the book then Comrade Commissar Don takes over to lead us through an overview of the chapter on El Salvador. 

We cover the origins of the guerrilla war waged by the FMLN, the relationship between religion and Marxism in El Salvador, human rights, the massacres by right wing death squads, the conclusion of the conflict, and our closing thoughts on the book.

Intro Music: "War Within a Breath" by Rage Against the Machine
