In the article, "Distrust, Suspicion Mark Return of Guatemalans," May 5, your coverage of the return of Guatemalan refugees is very informative. Having spent time with a Witness for Peace delegation in refugee communities in both Mexico and Guatemala last year I am aware of some of the problems the refugees are facing. May I suggest that the international community is not "being duped into supporting a rebel strategy," as one interviewee suggested, but rather is being urged to respond to the human needs of these people who are living in very trying conditions.
