The country I have chosen to write about is El Salvador. El salvador is a small central American Nation. In many places it’s known for its Pacific Ocean Beaches. It was first found in the 16th century by the spanish empire. On September 15 1821, it achieved independence from spain as part of the first Mexican Empire, only to further secede as part of The Federal Republic of Central America  in 1823. From the late 19th to the mid-20th century, El Salvador endured political and economic instability characterized by revolts and a succession of authoritarian rulers. Persistent inequality led to the devastating Salvadoran civil war , which was fought between the military-led government and a coalition of left-wing guerrilla groups. During this war the US supplied the government of El salvador with weapons and at the height of the war the US was supplying the salvadoran government with 1.5 million dollars a day. Many say the war would of ended way sooner if the US wouldn’t have interfered. In 1990 the UN began peace negotiations and on January 16, 1992, a final agreement, The Chapultepec Peace Accords, was signed by the combatants in Mexico City, formally ending the conflict.Present day El Salvador is a little different. It is considered a third world country because of its murder rate, homicide ,and its gang related violence. The Salvadoran economy moves at a very slow pace because businesses struggle and fear the constant threat of extortion from MS 13 and other threatening thugs. The people of El salvador who i spoke with say that they prefer to not work and have their American relatives transfer money to them so that the gangs and thugs wont see them work and hassle them for money. I also spoke with a former salvadoran business owner who fled the country fearing for his life and his family’s well being due to threats and constant harassment from exploitation. He in a time period of two weeks abandoned his business sold his home and belongings and is now a immigrant in the US where he also struggles due to lack of communication and work permit. He very much prefers the struggles in this country instead of his own.   People now can only hope and dream that they can return to their memories of their tropical weather, beautiful beaches, and amazing culture they once enjoyed and cherished.
