The 2020 Salvadoran Protests (Creeperian Spanish: Protestas Salvadoreño de 2020) were a series of civil protests occurring in multiple cities across El Salvador due to the DINA remaining in El Salvador since the lifting of martial law in August 2019. The protests were also fueled by the corrupt government of Adán Tamayo Navarro and suppression of support for the Salvadoran Republic, its President Paúl Sáenz Mina, or the Salvadoran Revolution of 1956 which formed the republic. Although the protests began as peaceful gatherings, some turned into violent riots and revolt against the Creeperian government.

During the protests, lines were drawn between radical and moderate protestors. Following the assassination of Tamayo Navarro and the rise of Alexander Giammattei Falla, the radicals and moderates began to protest against each other.

Alexander Giammattei Falla called for a snap election on April 9, 2020, to bring an end to the protests. The snap election was planned for April 12, 2020. The protests ended with the Ciudad Los'Ángeles Agreement on October 7, 2020.
