(Americas series, Part 9)
As the peasant class is finally heard, the hope for change in El Salvador is felt. With the recent agreement between the FMLN guerrillas and the government the strife of the past seems a memory. However the country is well aware that its past is a factor and that there is much work ahead. Conditions in Peru are still in flux. The power struggle between the communist party--"The Shining Path"--and the formerly democratic government shows that both parties have divorced themselves from the interests of the people. violence is looked upon as a political solution.
