Read Allen's appeal, "Why Central America? Why Now?"

"Keeping campesinos and indigenous peoples poor allows a few rich people to maintain their wealth and power. So does accepting US military aid to expand the war on drugs. This is the situation in Central America. Starting with this reality and taking direction from our compañeros in Central America, we will add our individual skills to our shared fight for justice."
