Agustín Farabundo Martí Rodríguez (more popularly known as Farabundo Marti) 1893-1932.
Farabundo Marti was a revolutionary and communist from El Salvador. After becoming a revolutionary communist in the early 1920s, Marti organized students in his native El Salvador. After his arrest, Marti left El Salvador for exile became involved in the Anti-Imperialist League of the Americas, Communist Party of Central America and International Red Aid (a Marxist-led alternative to the Red Cross). Marti spent some time in Nicaragua, fighting alongside Augusto Sandino against the US-backed military occupation. In 1931, Marti returned to El Salvador where the desperate social and economic condition of the peasantry was producing a revolutionary situation. In 1932, Marti and the Communist Party led a peasant uprising against the government which was drowned in blood. The military retaliated by murdering 30,000 people in La Matanza (The Slaughter), including Marti. Marti’s name would live on as a martyr for the left in El Salvador, being taken up by the Marxist-led guerrilla movement Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) who fought the US-backed dictatorship in the 1980s.
