Posted by Spalding Hurst

December 25, 1985

We, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, affirming the right of peoples of Central America to life and to political self-determination, oppose the oppressive policies and interventionism of the United States government towards sovereign nations of Central America.
Specifically we oppose:
  • U.S. directed violence as a means of solving complex economic and political problems of Central American nations
  • U.S. supported militarism in Central American nations
  • Exploitation of the fear of communism as a rationale for U.S. military intervention
  • Degradation and violation of U.S. principles and values in this process of oppression
