What are the limits of any individual's right to freedom of expression?
In case of -personal harassment, who is attacked, an individual or a community?
I would like to share with you. a case of rage, indignation, and perplexity.
Recently, the Aligator- a University of Florida students' newspaper.- published
one letter I wrote criticisingg the Reaganp administration foreign policy in
Central America. I am a Latin American student.
Some days after doors of some offices at the U.F. campus had stickers attached
to whatever anti Reagan literature and posters was on display. The stickers read:
"KGB approved". One of the doors was mine.
The next day, I received a telephone call from a man, who did not iflentify
himself, saying that "he had been following my steps, and collecting published
and non published letters" I wrote to the Alligator, and that-"those letters
.will be sent to the Embassy" of my country.He complemented: "I a: interested to
know what they will do with you, when you come back".
In the sequence of actions, a common feature: the recurrence to sn old style of
persecution, through anonymous threats to intimidate.
Could persons who recurr to such methods to call themselves "freedom fighters?
Is divergence in opinions and human ethics incompatible? What is changing in
I am angry, I am perplex and I am indignated, but I am quite sure that I can count
on the solidarity of many Americans. I am s8r-e I won't be the only one, condemning

-DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CONDITIONS THE PEOPLES OF LATIN AMERICA
HAVE BEEN LIVING UNDER?
-DO YOU KNOW WHY THE PEOPLE OF THE CARIBBEAN,CENTRAL AND SOUTH
AMERICA ARE FIGHTING?
-DO YOU KNOW WHOSE INTERESTS ARE BEING PROTECTED BY U.S. FOREIGN
POLICY AND SUPPORT?
If you don't know the answers to these questions, or if you do and want to help
spread the word, the THE COMMITTEE IN SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLES OF LATIN AMERICA
(CISPLA), a student organization at the University of Florida,invites you to join in.
Throughout this country and in many other parts of the world people like you are
demonstrating against U.S. intervention in the area and against U.S. support of
regimes which are not responsive to the needs of their peoples.
Throughout education and action, CISPLA wants to mobilize your energies in an
effort to mitigate the suffering of the peoples of Latin America.
CISPLA objectives include:
-Supporting the efforts of U.S. public opinion groups against
the current policies of the Reagan Administration toward Latin
American popular movements, as the local affiliate of CISPES
(COMMITTEE IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF EL SALVADOR);
-Educating students and the Gainesville Community about the
historic conditions that brought about the present situation
in Latin America;
-Understanding why people in Latin America are fighting for the
type of governments they want;
-Exchanging information and collaborating with other groups as
NISGUA (Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala),
Secretariat of Solidarity with Chile, NNSNP (National Network
in Solidarity with the Iicaraguan People),Women's Coalition to
Stop U.S. Intervention in Central America and the Caribbean,and
others for a NATIONAL COALITION AGAINST 'REAGAN'S ANTI HUMAN
-Refusing to accept the ideology that Latin American struggles
should be defined in terms of a West-versus-East conflict;
-Spreading the idea that democracy, social pluralism and freedom
to choose one's government are not concepts just for U.S.
internal consumption but also for Latin American use;
-Gathering and distributing information concerning current events
and issues in Latin America;
-Bringing speakers and outside resources to our community in
order to understand properly what is happening in Latin America.
CISPLA needs people, ideas, and money to support these and other activities. CISPLA
meets every other week in the University of Florida campus. Time and place of
meetings will be announced in "The Alligator".
