1985.04.23: Stop Contra Aid (UCLA Daily Bruin)

UCLA Daily Bruin, April 23, 1985

Stop Contra Aid

Within the next few days, Congress will vote on the Reagan administration’s request for funds to aid the contra’s in their effort to overthrow the government of Nicaragua.

We write this letter, in the name of the Concerned Faculty, to ask you to phone, wire, or write your representative or senator urging them to vote against the aid proposal, whatever form it takes.

The Contras — notwithstanding Ronald Reagan’s statement equating them with the founding fathers of this nation — are guilty of horrifying acts of violence against civilians. The litany of tortures, rapes, and disembowelments of civilians, including church leaders, is too lengthy to repeat here.

One, of many, of recent accounts of such terrorism can be found in the “Talk of the Town” section of New Yorker magazine (Mar. 25). For this nation to fund the contras, is to take on the responsibility for the continued terrorism against a small sovereign nation, in violation of international law.

In the name of humanity, please try to stop U.S. aid to the contras. If you need the name of your representative or senator, call (202) 224-3121 and give the name of the person you are calling.

Write representatives at House Office Building, Washington, D.C., 20515, and senators at Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C., 20510.
