Anniversary of Óscar Romero

Tuesday, 24 March 2020

Óscar Romero was an Archbishop in El Salvador who was murdered on 24 March 1980 for his opposition to the right-wing reactionary government. The day has since been adopted as the UN Day for for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims.

Romero was seen as a defender of the poor and became a major critic of the military-civilian government. He was murdered by an unknown assasin while saying mass. He was considered a martyr and made a saint by Pope Francis.
