Abstract:  The following are some of the resources available from the above mentioned Argentine support groups: 1) a slide-tape show was prepared by the No Candu Community with the support of the United Steel workers of America (national office). it presents a general review of this century's labor history of Argentine people and includes vivid testimony of a disappeared political detainee who was saved by international pressure and who is now living in Canada. 2) a 33 RPM record is available for general sale. It includes two songs by Nancy White, "Desaparecidos" and "Hot Cargo", both in English. The first song tells the sad story of those political detainees kidnapped by paramilitary squads, under government direction and whose whereabouts are still not known. The second song is about the July 3, 1979 boycott action by the St. John, New Brunswick longshoremen, who refused to load a cargo of heavy water destined to the Candu reactor being built in Argentina. On that occasion, they demanded the freedom of a number of Argentine trade union people, 7 of whom were freed immediately as a direct result of this wonderful show of solidarity. 3) a 55- page document examines development in Argentina in terms of militarization and the economy and also Canada's role in this.
