The Massacre of the Seven Thousand (Creeperian: Masacre de los'Siete Mil), also called the Massacre of Salasate (Masacre de Salasate), was a massacre perpetrated by the 15th Creeperian Army against over 7,000 partisans and civilians in the village of Salasate, Abdan, on 5 April 1957. The massacre saw the deaths of partisan leaders Ernesto Guevara Castro, Alberto Medrano Fuentes, Miguel Arroyave Ruiz, and Víctor Mejía Múnera. Ricardo Klement Encarnación, an officer of the Elite Medical Detachment who became the Teguracoa camp doctor on 30 May 1936, and had evaded capture for eight years, was lynched and mutilated during the massacre.
