Friends of CRLN,

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended the action on Friday, May 31, at the Consulate. Your participation in this action and your support of the statement echoed the critical demands of human rights organizations in El Salvador. Civil society and human rights advocates have repeatedly highlighted the authoritarian and repressive nature of President Nayib Bukele’s government.

Our action was part of a coordinated effort involving groups and organizations from various cities across the United States and around the world. We were very glad to have partner and supported the diaspora community of El Salvador in Chicago, Alma de Izote collective, Cipotex de Chicago collective and other groups and organizations. We also thank our sister organizations in St. Louis, Missouri, Denver, Colorado, and Cleveland, Ohio who supported the action from their communities.

These demonstrations at embassies and consulates aimed to denounce the unconstitutional and illegitimate re-election of President Nayib Bukele in El Salvador. Your involvement helped amplify this message on a global scale.

People around the world have called for an end to human rights abuses and the restoration of democracy in El Salvador, underscoring the international concern for the country’s deteriorating political situation. This widespread support highlights the critical need for global solidarity in addressing these urgent issues. Please see the updated statement document below or CLICK HERE.

We stand resolutely with the people of El Salvador who REJECT AND REFUSE TO RECOGNIZE the Bukele regime. Together, we will continue to fight for justice, democracy, and human rights.

En resistencia y solidaridad permanente
