Guerrillas of the FARN (Armed Forces of National Resistance) have one of their encampments near the Golden Bridge, where** they have organized the entire community around the needs of the revolution. They take care of the babies, teach the children in school, hold military community drills, and train the young to carry on the fight. Children grow up with weapons in their hands, and and many of the guerrillas are between 13 and 20, with some even younger. In the camp, there are about 50 guerrillas, plus about 10 women and 8 babies. The commander is 22 and the political officer 19; life in the camp is organized on a military basis.

Salvador dream of revolution

The “Dream of Revolution” in El Salvador refers to the hope and aspirations of the people for a more just and equitable society. During the country’s Civil War (1980-1992), this dream was embodied by the leftist guerrilla groups who fought against the military-led government. The guerrillas sought to bring about social, economic, and political change through armed struggle. After the war, the “Dream of Revolution” continued to be a driving force for many Salvadorans, who sought to address the root causes of poverty and inequality and build a more democratic and equitable society. Despite progress in some areas, however, many Salvadorans still face significant challenges, including poverty, violence, and corruption, and the “Dream of Revolution” remains an ongoing aspiration for many.

The Salvadoran Civil War was a conflict that took place in El Salvador from 1980 to 1992. The war was fought between the military-led government and leftist guerrilla groups, including the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN). The conflict resulted in the deaths of over 75,000 people and the forced displacement of over a million Salvadorans. The war ended with the Chapultepec Peace Accords in 1992, which led to the establishment of the UN Mission in El Salvador (ONUSAL) and the disarmament of the guerrilla groups.
