*Someone* does not want the truth to be spoken.

"Never Again" - a report on human rights abuses in Gautemala was presented
on Friday afternoon.  The Catholic Bishop who spearheaded the "Memory
Recovery Project," Monsignor Herarde, was apparently assasinated Sunday night.

He was found with his head smashed.  Robbery/burgulary has been ruled out as
a motive - it seems to be clearly, especially when considering his role as a
human rights leader, to be a blatant political assination.

Any sense that progress has been made, or that peace has been achieved, in
Guatemala is percieved now to have been shattered.  The message sent through
this act:  Anyone who speaks out, even someone as powerful and high-profile
as Herarde, will be silenced;  truth is not allowed.

More details as they become available;  any further information appreciated.
Sumitted with respect, with sorrow, and in solidarity...

Peace!

Rob,     Sector Air Raid Warden at Rob's Place
