42.  '80's Left on FMLN & FSLN (Was," Re:The Left Shouldn't Uncritically...")
As a member of the Committee in Solidarity With The People of El Salvador in the 80's, and a participant in many marches then there were thousands that were explicit in their support for the Salvadorean guerillas. Oftentimes there were brutal polemics over which particular politico-military org. within the FDR-FMLN to support. Thank god here in the U.S. these debates only led to shoving and shouting. In El Salvador, a founder of one of the guerilla orgs., Roque Dalton a great communist poet was murdered on the orders of Joaquin Villalobos, as being a supposed dual KGB/CIA agent. A narrative on this is in, "The El Salvador Crisis Reader, " ed. by Barry Rubin and Robert Leiken, the piece by Gabriel Zaid, a Mexican writer.
