The archaeological zone and ceremonial civic center of TACUSCALCO (Nahulingo, El Salvador), declared a cultural asset by the Special Law for the Protection of the Cultural Heritage of El Salvador (LEPPCES) is being destroyed by the construction of 726 houses and a commercial center for the project of Urbanización Las Victorias, by the company INVERSIONES E INMOBILIARIA FÉNIX SA de CV
The researcher and archaeologist Federico Paredes confirmed the existence of pyramidal mounds and ceramic vestiges of the post-classical and pre-classical periods, which confirms that this area is an ancient territory and of very old settlements and that they have been destroyed by the dirt works of the construction company.
TACUSCALCO has a non-quantifiable value. The Lienzo de Tlaxcala document, belonging to the early colonial period, tells us that in 1524 the battle of TACUSCALCO was fought there, a fact narrated in one of the letters of the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado.
There is no doubt, then, that this is a space of great importance for the research processes that strengthen our identity and historical memory.
On the other hand, the construction project of INVERSIONES E INMOBILIARIA FÉNIX SA de CV also threatens the natural heritage and the quality of life of the inhabitants by increasing the flow of toxic substances in the flow of the Ceniza River in the locality.
The destruction caused by the real estate company violates the rights of indigenous peoples, the right to water and sanitation and the right to cultural heritage.
We show our condemnation and repudiate the fact that the company continues to work in impunity despite the restrictions and complaints pointed out by different sectors.
 Faced with this situation, the signers DEMAND: 
  1.  To the President of the Republic, Salvador Sánchez Cerén,
  2.  To the Attorney General of the Republic, Douglas Meléndez,
  3. To the Minister of the Environment, Lina Pohl,
  4.  To the Environmental Court of Santa Ana,
  5. To the Secretary of Culture of the Presidency, Silvia E. Regalado,
  6. To the deputies of the Legislative Assembly;
  7. To the Permanent Delegation of UNESCO in El Salvador 
 That they carry out the corresponding procedures from their institutions so that, according to the law, the destruction of our archaeological and environmental patrimony is stopped. So also that the corresponding investigations are carried out and responsibilities of the juridical or natural persons involved in the events are determined.
 From this platform of artists, cultural and academic managers, social organizations, environmentalists and civilians we will be vigilant in the resolution of our demands, and we will be available to join other initiatives and actions that safeguard the conservation and protection of our cultural heritage and natural

SAY NO TO THE DESTRUCTION AND CONTAMINATION OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF TACUSCALCO-NAHUILINGO
The archaeological cultural heritage of the area is in terrible threat of being extinguished.
The archaeological zone and ceremonial civic center of TACUSCALCO (Nahulingo, El Salvador), declared a cultural asset by the Special Law for the Protection of the Cultural Heritage of El Salvador (LEPPCES) is being destroyed for the construction of 726 houses and a shopping mall by the project of Urbanización Las Victorias, of which the company INVERSIONES E INMOBILIARIA FÉNIX SA de CV is in charge.
The researcher and archaeologist Federico Paredes confirmed the existence of pyramidal mounds and ceramic vestiges of the post-classical and pre-classical periods, which confirms that this area is an ancestral territory of an ancient settlement that had been destroyed by the construction company.
TACUSCALCO has an incalculable value. The Lienzo de Tlaxcala document, belonging to the early colonial period, tells us that in 1524 the battle of TACUSCALCO took place there, a fact narrated in one of the letters of the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado.
There is no doubt, then, that this is a space of great importance for the research processes that strengthen our identity and historical memory.
