Toronto, Dec. 09, 1982 -- For immediate release
The Most Rev. Robert Runcie, Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Edward Scott, Primate of Canada and the Rt. Rev. John Allin, Presiding Bishop of the U.S. Episcopal Church have issued the following joint statement:
On Nov. 20 a large group of armed men invaded a church supported cooperative farm in La Florida, El Salvador, where they murdered in execution style seven leaders of the farming venture. The assassinations left behind widows, 24 orphans, a community in shock and fear, and another chapter in the decimation of civilization in El Salvador.
An appeal has been made to the government of El Salvador for an official investigation into the massacre at La Florida. We join in that appeal and join with those voices of sanity who are working for peace in that beleaguered country.
The Rt. Rev. G. Edward Haynsworth, the bishop in charge of El Salvador and Latin American Partnership Officer of the Episcopal Church, has been dispatched to San Salvador to coordinate and communicate the church's response.
The Episcopal Church in the U.S. has established a ministry with the survivors to assist with housing, food and clothing.
We cannot stand by passively as the survivors of La Florida take down the victims from the cross of war. We cannot stand by emotionless as the widows and orphans gather the dead in their arms.
We assure the people of La Florida and all of El Salvador that our prayers remembered them and their dead. Our hands are extended to share their burden. Our moral persuasion is pressed against the wheels of government to speed justice. We cry out again; let this madness stop.
