"We want peace."

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

Madison Arcatao Sister City Project is a new member organization of WNPJ and we are compelled to share their information with you in the spirit of unity and peace.

Young people between the ages of 16-30 are being arrested without cause and put in prison without warrants, access to a lawyer, or any other civil liberties in Arcatao, El Salvador.

During the civil war (1980-1992) MASCP’s mission was to tell the people of Arcatao's story and they've asked that we tell it again… Not only are the soldiers there but they are beating people in the streets when questioning them. Students …have been stripped naked and searched. Many families have members now imprisoned without justification. MASCP *

Very few people in the 16-30-year-old age range are left in Madison’s sister city. They have migrated to Honduras or the US. This is the video that the youth of Arcatao created and asked us to share.

You are invited to hear MASCP delegates on Monday, July 10

6-7:30pm, Village Cohousing Community,

1104 Mound Street, Madison
