Ignacio Martín-Baró on State terrorism

( November 17, 2014, Boston, Sri Lanka Guardian) A rare video of Martín-Baró speaking in English. He covers State terrorism in El Salvador in the 1980s and before. He focusses on the role of the disappearances, murders and massacres in the pacification of the population, taking a social psychological perspective that is firmly located in both a humanistic and a socio-political outlook. He makes the important point that this political terrorism has an impact, not just on the victims, but also on the wider population. Many thanks to Adrianne Aron (who introduces the talk) for making the video available. The recording is rather quiet, but very clear: try headphones if it is too quiet on your machine.
