Name of creator
Lorne A. Brown, who taught political science at the University of Regina in the 1980s, was active in the Central America Solidarity Movement. He was also a member of the Central America Working Group in Regina. In 1986 he decided to edit an anthology, assisted by Janice Acton and Miaja Kagis, to reflect the experiences of “Canadians who have worked in, travelled to, observed or been associated with developments in several Central American countries”, with an emphasis on Nicaragua. To accomplish this task, he contacted Canadian “solidarity activists in trade unions, the National Farmer’s Union, churches, teachers’ association” and other groups, including Tools for Peace. Although the anthology was never published, many activists were interviewed.
