Abstract: The Inter-Church Committee on Human Rights in Latin America (ICCHRLA) is asking Canadians to write to External Affairs Minister Joe Clark to urge him to protest the U.S. invasion and continued occupation of Panama. ICCHRLA objects to Canada's support for the invasion. "This was the 20th invasion of Panama's territory by the U.S. since 1856; nonetheless the Canadian government claims 'the situation in Panama prior to the U.S. intervention was unique"', says ICCHRLA.
