To the Editors:

Your readers may be interested to know that the Solidarity Support Campaign has organized an all-day conference on Sat. April 17 entitled, “Protest and Survive: Poland, El Salvador and Disarmament,” to be held at New York City’s Riverside Church beginning at 10:00 a.m. The SSC sponsored a meeting attended by over 600 people in support of the Polish workers’ movement in November of last year before the imposition of martial law.

The present conference is a continuation of SSC’s efforts to foster activity and discussion linking the struggles for democratic rights around the world with the fight for peace and nuclear disarmament.

A plenary session will open the conference and feature Daniel Singer, leading writer on Solidarity and the author of The Road to Gdansk; Dan Smith, Chairperson of the Campaign for European Disarmament and co-editor with E.P. Thompson of Protest and Survive; and Robert Armstrong of the North American Congress on Latin America and co-author with Janet Schenk of El Salvador: The Face of Revolution. Workshops will follow, including as panelists trade union activists, intellectuals and members of international resistance movements and will focus on issues in workers’ self-management, repression, disarmament, as well as the role of religion in democratic struggles in both East and West.
