Abstract/ Summary

Reports in recent years of thousands of Indians and Ladinos slaughtered in Guatemala and tens of thousands more fleeing their homes to refugee camps have provoked no outcry in the U.S. Popular resistance to the oppressive military regime is growing, yet President Reagan will ask to renew aid for the nation most notorious for human rights violations. This request should be denied and all support for this regime ended. The reasons should be clear when the Guatemala story is understood.
