Writer and journalist Walter Raudales is the leader of the MIS, and told El Mundo newspaper that his priority will be the battle of ideas in the streets, without ruling out his participation in the 2024 elections.
Raudales, director of El Independiente newspaper, informed that this force will be officially launched on March 5, as a result of a citizens’ demand for a popular alternative to the political dynamics prevailing in the country.
“We are united by the desire for a better country, a more just society and the struggle for El Salvador without dictatorship. But initially it is to do good, we are united by doing good,” the representative of the Ocean Sur publishing house explained.
Among the influences of the MIS is the legacy from the Jesuit Fathers massacred in 1989 by the Army at the Central American University (UCA), as well as the reading of classics of the international revolutionary movement.
“We want to build something that goes beyond the elections, something that is emancipating, liberating and that is a space that allows you to give the battle of ideas,” Raudales, who emphasized the plurality of the movement, pointed out.
He highlighted that the leftist thinking is a life option marked by values of social justice, revolution and transformations, an “irruption of ethics in politics.” jg/afl/mem/cmv
