Extortion & Death Threats

Extortion & Death Threats

Since March 2015

            I have had so many problems.

            Extortion.

            Death Threats.

The gangs threatened

            To take me.

            To take my son.

If I did not give them the money

            I earn from my job in sales.

I am the sole provider for my son.

            To survive; I must work.

*

The gangs forbid me

            to leave the territory.

They have to look for me

            for extortion

            for murder.

I could not remain any longer.

            It was impossible to survive.

*

It is true in my country

            El Salvador.

The gangs are the ones with the power.

The gangs hold power over

            Everyone.

They told me:

            ‘If you do not give us

            everything we ask for

            you will bleed.’

*

I have two sons.

            Only one came with me.

The other one is a little older.

            He is stronger.

It is more necessary

            for the little one and me

To escape to safety.
