A rich history of civic organizing in El Salvador and the Palestinian territories undergirded the mass mobilization of the 1970s and 1980s. These mobilization efforts and much of the associational life that grew out of them were responses to conflicts with long historical roots. This chapter explains the historical roles of the political-military organizations of the FLMN and PLO in mass mobilization in the two cases. It then traces the evolution of mass mobilization and associational life leading to the beginning of the conflict to peace transition in each case, including the development of mass based women’s organizing in both cases.

Keywords:   PLO political military organizations, FLMN political military organizations, Mass-based organization, Associational life, FMLN mass based organization, PLO mass based organization, Women’s sectors
