Progressive Catholic Agrarians in Latin America
This chapter examines rural social movements in El Salvador from the first rural social movements and peasant federations of the 1960s, through the civil war of the 1980s, and into post-war social and political life in rural areas today. It focuses on the movement to repopulate war-torn rural areas and the effort to transform economic and political institutions, reform agricultural practices and land tenure, practice environmental restoration, and create models of a “new society” based on progressive Catholic values.
