Abstract: Concern over the mounting death toll in E1 Salvador and the danger of increased U.S. intervention under the Reagan administration has promoted a group of concerned Canadians and Latin American immigrants to form a new coalition in Toronto. The Committee of Solidarity with the people of E1 Salvador has been formed to educate Canadians about E1 Salvador and to urge the Canadian government to take a firm position against foreign intervention.
The Committee is encouraging Canadians to press the US government to cease its military aid program with the present E1 Salvador junta. This junta is responsible for the majority of the 10,000 people killed in E1 Salvador during 1980. Members of the Solidarity Committee include representatives from church groups, social agencies, unions and political parties. There are four sub-committees from church groups, social agencies, unions and political parties. There are four sub-committees, fundraising, press and information, events, and lobbying. Volunteers are urgently needed to carry out the solidarity work.
This organization no longer exists.
