The Life of an International Revolutionary

Ismael Palacios was one of the founding members of the American branch for the Salvadoran left wing party of Farabundo Marti National Liberation front (FMLN). When he founded the group he never expected it would be such an integral part of the Civil War in el Salvador. On a recent afternoon in April he recalled the fundraising events the group hosted in the Mission to give money to the guerilla army of the FLMN in the 80’s. Now that the war is over and the FLMN won the recent presidential election he is regarded as the “grandfather of the FMLN.” Palacios is now 82-years-old but he keeps himself active by engaging in protest for immigration reform.
