The Rebellion of the Flower-Eaters: El Salvador, 1932

Part of the St Antony’s/Macmillan Series book series


After it had been agreed to proceed with an armed insurrection, a decision that was influenced by the fact that the CPES had reason to believe that, if it did not assume leadership, the masses would launch themselves into a revolt spontaneously, the Central Committee was charged with the military preparation of the rising. Its members undertook, with a space of scarcely eight days before them, to carry out the essential tasks of strengthening their contacts within the Army, acquiring arms and other necessary material, organizing communications, and incorporating other social sectors into the struggle.
