The official image of the Movement Against Violence
A group of Salvadoran bloggers have started an effort, called the Movement Against Violence, to rally Salvadorans against the homicides affecting so many in El Salvador. The movement centers around a web site titled "Basta!" or "Enough!" which partly acts as a memorial to murder victims in El Salvador by recording the news of each violent death on the Basta! blog. It is an effort inspired by another blog, 100 Days in the Republic of Death, by Salvadoran artist Mayra Barraza.
The drawing above has been taken as the official image of the Movement Against violence. As its website explains, Wilber Geovanni Cruz Rivera was a 6 year old boy murdered in the town of Chalchuapa. His kindergarten teacher asked his little companions to draw something which represented the violence. One girl made this impressionistic drawing, which has now become the official image of the movement.
