Yes:  I would suggest that all friend of democracy and enemies of fascist
dictatorship, should write to the Peruvian people in the Internet.  Most
Peruvian people in the Internet, are not of course workers and peasants, but
rather intellectuals, some students abroad, a few military officers and
reactionary pro-US bureaucrats.  However there is also a democratic camp of
people basically oppossed to the fascit dictatorship too, albeit most not
>from revolutionary positions.

There are two Peruvian lists (similar to the Marxism list).  Most debates
there are in Spanish although is perfectly OK to publish a letter in
English.  Most people read it, although you may not be interested enough to
stay if a debate with someone who does not speak English develops.

The first one, which has a good reach all the way into most internet hooked
offices and homes in Peru itself is: Peru at (to subscribe you send
a mailer to listproc at and put in the body of message: subscribe
peru (your name).  For sending messages, send to Peru at

The second one is Tumi at and to subscribe is majordomo at with
the message: subscribe Tumi.  To send: Tumi at

In any case, if you do no want to have to subscribe to any or to both of
those lists just to send a letter of support for Mr. Salazar Calero or
condemnation of the Fujimori fascist regime's actions, you can mail it us,
Committee Sol Peru London at: hariette at and we will forward
your letter for you.
