Bianca Jagger to open Day 2 of the FiL conference

Bianca Jagger will be opening the Feminism in London Conference on the Sunday at 9am prompt!


In 1981, she was part of a US congressional fact-finding mission visiting a UN refugee camp in Honduras, when an armed death squad from El Salvador crossed the border, entered the camp and abducted 40 refugees, and proceeded to march them towards El Salvador. Bianca Jagger and fellow members of the delegation gave chase along a dry riverbank, armed only with cameras. The abductors pointed their guns at them, but were told, "You would have to kill us all or we will denounce your crime to the world." There was a long silence and without explanation, the death squads released their captives and disappeared.
