Historical Who is Who
1928 - 1966
After extensive studies in law, theology and Marxism Camilo Torres interpreted his Dominican Catholic vocation as an incentive to organise his university students to take part in socially oriented activities, such as farming, health-care, and teaching. Rebuked by the university, church and state he joined an armed guerrilla group and was killed by government militia. He is often referred to as a Christian-Marxist engaging in violence in the interests of social justice.
