This week marked the 30th anniversary of the assassination of El Salvadoran priest Oscar Romero.  In commemoration of this anniversary, Jamie Moffett filmmaker of such documentaries as The Ordinary Radicals and most recently Return to El Salvador, a film narrated by Martin Sheen that “brings the hopes of the Salvadoran people to light and helps find significant ways to walk with them in their journey,” has released Mothers In Arms, a companion book which traces the stories of women who took up arms in the El Salvadoran civil war in the 1980s.  The book is available in an ebook format in either English or Spanish and a hardcover edition is available for pre-order.
