In Memoriam
El Debate Nacional por la Paz ofrece esta placa en memoria de los padres jesuitas.
Ignacio Ellacuria, Segundo Montes, Ignacio Martin Baro, Amando Lopez, Juan Ramon Moreno, Joaquin Lopez y Lopez.
Por su meritisimo trabajo en favor de las mayorias populares, ellos desde la fe en Jesuscristo y la ciencia laboraron inclaudicablemente por construir una nueva sociedad salvadoreña, asentada sobre bases de justicia, paz y respeto de los derechos humanos. Fueron asesinados junto a dos de sus colaboradoras Elba y Celina Ramos, por las fuerzas oscuras del pais, el 16 de noviembre de 1989, pero su vida y mensaje como llama ardiente de amor y verdad continuara alumbrando el camino e inspirando los corazones de todos los salvadoreños.

San Salvador, 16 de noviembre de 1990.

They were assassinated together with their two co-workers, Elba and Celina Ramos, by the country’s dark forces on November 16, 1989, but their life and message that burn with love and truth will continue to light the way and inspire the hearts of all Salvadorans.
