It was an incredible huge success! All of the trucks were donated.
In the early hours of November 16, 1989, six Jesuit professors, their housekeeper, and her teenage daughter were roused from sleep by US-trained Salvadoran special forces, led outside, and shot to death on the lawn of the Central American University José Simeón Cañas (UCA) in San Salvador.
They were: Ignacio Ellacuría, Ignacio Martín-Baró, Segundo Montes, Amando López, Juan Ramón Moreno, Joaquín López y López, as well as Julia Elba Ramos and her 15-year-old daughter Celina.

First time they served us Oreos, 2nd time we were met by a CIA agent who let us know he knew were from CISPES. That was the last of the large scale delegations until cease fire.
