The note specifically condemned CONFREGUA, the progressive Protestant organization CIEDEG, the ecumenical Campaign for Life and Peace, the new officially sanctioned Assembly of Civil Society, and related "social groups of the insurgency," including the popular organization CONAVIGUA and the Comunidades de Poblacion en Resistencia, formed by refugees who fled into clandestine camps in the mountains.
Its membership included representatives from the Catholic Church, the progressive Conference of Evangelical Churches of Guatemala (CIEDEG), the Episcopal Church, the Jewish community, and the Permanent Assembly of Christian Groups (APGC), which included members from a number of progressive grassroots organizations, both Catholic and Protestant.
