Rebel Radio: The Story of El Salvador's Radio Venceremos

By José Ignacio López Vigil; Mark Fried | Go to book overview

invited a military priest to congratulate the soldiers and bless their victory. He'd brought along a journalist from COPREFA7, a cameraman and a soundman to film the moment when Monterrosa personally helped carry the transmitter-bomb into the helicopter. They and their lieutenant colonel, the gringos' Rambo in El Salvador, were all dead. The only one who missed the appointment was James Steele, head of the US advisers, who ran the Torola IV operation along with Monterrosa. Not even the devil wanted to have him.

"Set up Venceremos, we've got to go on air at six on the dot!"

I will never forget that broadcast. Even though it was October and the rainy season, the sky in Morazán was choked with stars. A thousand of them had names.

We declare this day 23 October a day of vindication for the patriotic martyrs murdered in El Mozote, La Joya, Los Toriles, Poza Honda and all the hamlets and villages of Morazán where this executioner massacred so many innocent lives. This is Radio Venceremos, indestructible like our people!

When the programme was over, Atilio called us all together: "Now, get the band and let's have a big party! We aren't going to celebrate the death of a man, we're going to celebrate the people who'll live now that he's gone!"
