The World

January 24, 1986

About 300 peace activists from 32 nations ended a journey through Central America with a rally in Mexico City attended by a crowd estimated at 10,000. The marchers left Panama City on Dec. 10. They were expelled to Nicaragua by Costa Rica, and then Honduras and El Salvador refused to issue them visas, forcing the group to fly to Guatemala City and board buses for the rest of the trip. At the rally, speakers condemned U.S. intervention in the region.
