History on july 30 1975
History on July 30, 1975:

  • University students began a non-violent protest on July 30th in retaliation to the control of the military and government before the civil war. Before they reached the bridge mostly all students were brutally murdered by tank guns and machine guns.

  • The 1975 student protest was in response to the military taking over the University of El Salvador campus on July 25, 1975. The students demanded that the military stay out of the only public state university in El Salvador, founded in 1841, which is also one of the strongest bases of the popular movement in the country.
