New York Times, 18 April (display advertisement) -- An Urgent Message from Europeans to Congress: Support the Nicaraguan Resistance -- Democracy itself is at stake in Nicaragua. After four years of dictatorship, the FSLN, the totalitarian ruling party, has not succeeded in breaking the resistance of the Nicaraguan people.

After the relative liberalization represented. Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed whether the U.S.-funded United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Organization of American States (OAS) programs provided former resistance combatants and dependents in Honduras and Nicaragua with adequate food, medical care, and repatriation assistance to help them achieve self-sufficiency.

Should the conditions described in subparagraph (a) or (b) of paragraph (1) later be achieved, assistance to the Nicaraguan democratic resistance will again be limited to the categories, described above, available during the initial 90 days following approval of my request, for so long as the Government of Nicaragua acts in good faith to maintain those conditions.
