Central America Solidarity Activists
Central America Solidarity activists collection. 1986 -1990.
22.5 cm of textual records. 52 audio cassettes.
Lorne A. Brown, who taught political science at the University of Regina
in the 1980s, was active in the Central America Solidarity Movement.
He was also a member of the Central America Working Group in Regina.
In 1986 he decided to edit an anthology, assisted by Janice Acton and
Miaja Kagis, to reflect the experiences of Canadians who have
worked in, travelled to, observed or been associated with developments
in several Central American countries, with an emphasis on Nicaragua.
To accomplish this task, he contacted Canadian solidarity activists
in trade unions, the National Farmers Union, churches, teachers
association and other groups, including Tools for Peace. Although
the anthology was never published, many activists were interviewed.
The collection consists of interviews contained on audio cassettes along
with transcripts of many of the interviews. Most of the interviews are
in English but some are in French.
Researchers may also want to consult
the Tools for Peace fonds.
