13 December 2019, Madrid, Spain: Latin American church leaders Rev. Nehemias Rivera Medina of the Lutheran Costa Rican Church (right) and Rev. Santiago de Jesús Rodríguez Lara from the Salvadoran Lutheran Church (left) hold crosses, as faith-based organizations gather for a vigil, as COP25 is about to draw to a close, praying that negotiations will bear fruit, bringing about urgent and just action to find a way out of the climate crisis. The crosses are replicas of a much larger cross from the Lutheran Cathedral of El Salvador, referred to as 'La Cruz Subversiva'. On the cross are written testimonies of people in El Salvador noting down the oppressions they suffer in their daily lives. The cross has a special history, in that it was confiscated by 'El Ejército' (The People's Revolutionary Army) in November 1989, while El Salvador was living through war.
