Transcript rested sat in a tight group in front of the main gate. Although a Fairfax County Police spokesperson said they had 300 officers at the scene, it took almost three hours for the gate to be cleared. Officers in shiny riot helmets would drag or carry protesters away from the huddled and singing group, bind their wrists behind their backs with disposable plastic cuffs, and load them into waiting paddywagons. After the demonstration, several people from the UH delegation went back to the Capital, the center of American political power. They spent their last hours in Washington trying a more traditional approach to changing public policy. They lobbied their congressmen. As a member of the national steering committee for the mobilization, Angela Sanbrano played an important role in organizing the three day affair. She said the mobilization was part of a process that has been going on for more than eight years, and that it brought together many different sectors that have been working to change U.S. foreign policy. Sanbrano said, "this shows that there is a unified conception of what we want, which is peaceful solutions to the conflict." She said the next big fight for the policy protestors would be to try and stop U.S. funding of the Contras and to stop military aid to the governments of El Salvador and Guatemala. Sanbrano also called for the demilitarization of Honduras. "We want the U.S. to dismantle all its military bases in Honduras and we want them to stop sending in the National Guard." Sanbrano said the death of a U.S. military advisor in El Salvador in April is an indication of the level of U.S. intervention in that country's war. "It is the beginning of another Viet Nam-type war where the North American youth will be coming home in body bags." —Daniel Alder 34
