El Salvador (Spanish: República de El Salvador, literally 'Republic of The Savior') is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. The country's capital city and largest city is San Salvador; Santa Ana and San Miguel are also important cultural and commercial centers in the country as well as Central America. El Salvador borders the Pacific Ocean on the west, and the countries of Guatemala to the north and Honduras to the east. Its easternmost region lies on the coast of the Gulf of Fonseca, opposite Nicaragua. As of 2009, El Salvador had a population of approximately 5,744,113 people, composed predominantly of Mestizos. The colón was the official currency of El Salvador from 1892 to 2001, when it adopted the U.S. Dollar. In 2010 El Salvador ranked in the top 10 among Latin American countries in terms of the Human Development Index and in the top 3 in Central America (behind Costa Rica and Panama), due in part to ongoing rapid industrialization. In addition, tropical forests and overall forest cover has expanded by nearly 20 percent from the year 1992 to 2010, making it one of the few countries experiencing reforestation. In October 1979 a coup d'état brought the Revolutionary Government Junta of El Salvador to power. It nationalized many private companies and took over much privately owned land. The purpose of this new junta was to stop the revolutionary movement already underway in response to Duarte's stolen election. Nevertheless, the oligarchy opposed agrarian reform, and a junta formed with young liberal elements from the army such as Gen. Majano and Gen. Gutierrez, as well as with progressives such as Ungo and Alvarez. Owing to pressure from the oligarchy, this junta was soon dissolved because of its inability to control the army in its repression of the people fighting for unionization rights, agrarian reform, better wages, accessible health care and freedom of expression. In the meantime, the guerrilla movement was spreading to all sectors of Salvadoran society. Middle and high school students were organized in MERS (Movimiento Estudiantil Revolucionario de Secundaria, Revolutionary Movement of Secondary Students); college students were involved with AGEUS (Asociacion de Estudiantes Universitarios Salvadorenos; Association of Salvadoran College Students); and workers were organized in BPR (Bloque Popular Revolucionario, Popular Revolutionary Block). The U.S. supported and financed the creation of a second junta to change the political environment and stop the spread of a leftist insurrection. Napoleon Duarte was recalled from his exile in Venezuela to head this new junta. However, a revolution was already underway and his new role as head of the junta was seen by the general population as opportunistic. He was unable to influence the outcome of the insurrection, and this resulted in the Salvadoran Civil War (1980--1992). On January 16, 1992, the government of El Salvador, represented by president Alfredo Cristiani, and the Frente Farabundo Martí para la Liberación Nacional (FMLN), represented by the commanders of the five guerrilla groups -- Shafick Handal, Joaquin Villalobos, Salvador Sánchez Ceren, Francisco Jovel and Eduardo Sancho, all signed the peace agreements brokered by the United Nations which ended the 12-year civil war. This event, held at the Chapultepec Castle in Mexico, was attended by U.N. dignitaries and other representatives of the international community. After signing the armistice, the president stood up and shook hands with all the now ex-guerrilla commanders, an action which was widely admired. The so-called Mexico Peace Agreements mandated reductions in the size of the army, and the dissolution of the National Police, the Treasury Police, the National Guard and the Civilian Defense, a paramilitary group. A new Civil Police was to be organized. Judicial immunity for crimes committed by the armed forces ended; the government agreed to submit to the recommendations of a Commission on the Truth for El Salvador (Comisión de la Verdad Para El Salvador), which would "investigate serious acts of violence occurring since 1980, and the nature and effects of the violence, and...recommend methods of promoting national reconciliation." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_salvador

For a limited time see all of this Remnant Exodus Seminar for FREE! Because Escape is Still Possible... http://RemnantExodus.Org The biblical signs of the last days are indeed upon us… Global disaster is imminent… Yet, escape IS possible. That’s what this Remnant Exodus Seminar is all about – escape – explaining the threat, exposing the lies, and pointing out the only way of escape from the impending doom. For a limited time see all of this Remnant Exodus Seminar for FREE! This Remnant Exodus Seminar includes 7 power-packed video presentations, each one about an hour to an hour and a half in length. These presentations are based on the Scriptures, both OT and NT, on current events, and on documented history. Each video builds on those before it. This Remnant Exodus Seminar is designed to easily take you through this information step by step, with slides and illustrations to guide you each step of the way. Prepare for assumptions of the past to be challenged, giving you important new information to help guide your way. There are no gimmicks here, no manipulation, no lies. We know that your life is literally on the line, so documentation is provided for the facts presented in these videos for you to check out for yourself. Consider all of the evidence and then you be the judge. Here is a short outline of what’s included in these videos: 1. Escape The Mark – The Mark of the Beast of Revelation is coming – you need to escape before that happens. 2. War On Cash – We are quickly moving toward a cashless world – this will bring in the Mark. 3. No Rapture… No Escape? – The Pre-Trib Rapture is a fatally flawed doctrine based on assumptions that do not agree with the facts of history. Find out how the facts about the early believers change everything you may have been told. 4. The Great Judaic Schism – The influence of rabbinical Judaism on the world has been far-reaching. Re-visiting the history of 1st century Judaic sects is eye-opening for Jews, Christians and Messianics, since all three groups are directly affected by this information. 5. The Christian Church Did Not Exist Before 135 AD – Christians are told that the Christian Church began at Pentecost, as allegedly reported in Acts. Yet, many Christian scholars know this is not true. The Christian Church did not exist before 135 AD – a fact with huge ramifications when looking for a way of escape. 6. Into Babylon – History clearly shows that both rabbinical Judaism and Christianity started on the path into Babylon in the 2nd Century AD. This has set up people from both of these groups for disaster, when Babylon the Great of Revelation 17 & 18 soon meets its end. Yes, this is a shocking claim. That’s why you need to take in this seminar! 7. Remnant Exodus –”The Remnant” is one of the most well-established teachings of Scripture, and also the most neglected. Here you will learn who the Remnant are, and how the Remnant Exodus offers the only way of escape. Perhaps most importantly, it will finally become clear how you can escape as part of this group. Lastly, there are powerful enemies to the truths presented here, so we can’t promise how long this free Remnant Exodus Seminar will be online. We urge you to schedule time to take in all of this Remnant Exodus Seminar as soon as possible, while it is still available. We sincerely hope this information will help you to make your escape from the things that soon must come upon the earth.
