The London Central America Group (LCAG) was founded in November 1980 in response to events occuring in the Central American region. LCAG supports human rights, democracy, and social progress in Central America, and provides information to the Canadian public about these concerns. Since its creation, LCAG has paid particular attention to labor related human rights issues. The group feels that the involvement of the labour movement in these is of great importance.
To date LCAG has worked particularly on Nicaragua and El Salvador. The Group's activities have included numerous fundraising event such as benefit concerts with the Companeros and Banda Tepuani, educational film showings, and political actions including: telegrams, letter campaigns, and participation and preparation of demonstrations in London and Ottawa.
