During the 1980s the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) of El Salvador led a national liberation war to overthrow a series of US-backed governments. The US provided billions of dollars in equipment and training to the Salvadoran military, which formed death squads that terrorized and murdered thousands of civilians. A broad-based solidarity movement in the U.S. emerged to oppose the U.S. wars in Central America. Fireworks made many large banners like this, as well as hand drawn placards, and street puppets as contributions to the many mass demonstrations and direct actions that were held to protest the US funded wars and interventions across the globe in the 1980s and 90s.
