124-10217-10395: No Title

8/13/65, research memorandum from Thomas Hughes of State Dept. of Intelligence and Research - INR to Secretary of State: at p. 2: "Within the past ten years, the CD parties of Venezuela and Chile have attained positions of major importance...as a continental political movement, Christian Democracy is increasingly articulate and influential...(At p. 9): "The primary (Christian Democratic) body is the Christian Democratic Organization of America (ODCA)...most Latin American CD movements send representatives to attend the Congresses...(the most important regional body) is the Latin American Confederation of Christian Trade Unions (CLASC)...closely associated with...International Federation of Christian Trade Unions, which has its headquarters in Belgium." At p. 16: "The CD trade union movement in Latin America is CLASC, and the dominant figure in CLASC is its Secretary General,Emilio Maspero. An Argentine, Maspero began his labor career by organizing a Christian labor movement which reportedly penetrated the Peronista labor organization and was a factor in the conflict which developed between Peron and the Catholic Church. While some CD leaders, including Chile's President Frei, decry Maspero's trouble-making propensities, there is no evidence that he is losing the support of his organization's rank and file...(he has a) longstanding feud with the Inter-American Regional Labor Organization - ORIT, which has ties to the AFL-CIO...(an estimate of CLASC's membership as) 500,000 adherents would be excessively liberal...p. 27: "In general, however, Christian Democracy offers a long term alternative which is in accord with US policy toward Latin America."
