The Saskatoon Solidarity Commmittee (SSC) is an individual member group that has focussed on southern Africa and Latin America since its inception in July 1978.
The objective of the Committee is the promotion of solidarity between working people in Canada and workers throughout the world. The SSC sees the liberation of workers taking place through the defeat of imperialism: "We, as participants in the workers' struggles in Canada, are also weakening imperial control over other countries by attacking the system of exploitation of labour through private ownership of the means of production."
In the past year the Committee has co-sponsored with OXFAM the showing of the film "El Salvador: The People Will Win". SSC is currently involved in a campaign to provide medical aid to El Salvador.
