International Day for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of victims takes place annually on 24 March to mark the anniversary of the assassination of Archbishop Óscar Romero of El Salvador, an outspoken advocate for the poor and marginalized, who spoke out against social injustice, poverty, assassination and torture, who was assissinated while celebrating Mass, in San Salvador when he publicly accused the Government of human rights violations. He was assassinated by a pro-government death squad assassin who was probably under orders from pro-government death squad leader Roberto D’Aubuisson.
