Transcript Angela Sanbrano was on the National Steering Committe for the Mobilization. She is also the National Coordinator for the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador. . . . One hundred thousand people have died in Central America in six years and, given the size of the population in this country, there are relatively few people involved in actively opposing the policy. This is why (the mobilization) is so exciting. It shows that there is a beginning of a movement. That is why the media is portraying this by saying that is looks like the sixties, because public opinion in this country was very polarized. People are beginning to realize the implications of the U.S. being in a war over there — that it not only affects the people in Central America, but it affects us here. policy center specializing in comprehensive investigations, assertive legal work, and public education. It was founded by the legal team that handled the Karen Silkwood case. From a small office, overcrowded with stacks of paper, and located in an old part of town, the Institute is investigating a group of men that they say have conducted assassinations for the CIA since the Cuban revolution. The Institute publicly charged this group of men, who they say ran the Cuban mob that flourished under Baptista, with importing drugs into the U.S. to help finance the contra war in Nicaragua, and with planting a bomb at a press conference called by ex-contra Eden Pastora. Pastora survived the blast, but several international journalists were killed.

The week after we left, one of the students was shot and killed while studying near the economics building. He was shot in the back several times. hundreds of other people in the chilled air of downtown D.C., where they loaded onto busses. They watched the sun rise over the Potomac River as the buses made the short trip to Virginia. About 1,000 people went, and half of them knew ahead of time that they would probably be arrested. The protestors planned to use their bodies to block the CIA's gates and, if possible, to disrupt the agency's business routine for at least a short time. The UH delegation stayed on the wooded slope next to the gate. Organizers of the protest had obtained a permit which allowed for a legal assembly on the slope.
