Five women, including FMLN Commander Lilian Mercedes Letona "Clelia", speak about their imprisonment after they are released from the Women's Prison of Ilopango when the Salvadoran government declared a general amnesty for political prisoners in 1983.
Made in El Salvador by Sistema Radio Venceremos, this film was part of a video series curated by El Salvador Media Project, a New York-based media organization.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
