Revolutionary Worker #1260, November 28, 2004, posted at

As reported in the RW , on November 5 the reactionary Peruvian state began a trial of Abimael Guzman, known as Chairman Gonzalo of the Communist Party of Peru (PCP), and 17 other accused leaders, members, and supporters of the party. (See "Chairman Gonzalo on Trial in Peru," RW #1258.) This trial was set to be the opening salvo of a whole legal assault which the Peruvian state is gearing up to launch against Chairman Gonzalo. The trial was postponed on the opening day, and now Peruvian officials are reportedly saying it will not resume until at least mid-December. Read the RW and check the website for further coverage of developments in the trial.
