MRTA accepts the obvious -- defeat

Jailed Peru Rebel Chief Lays Down Arms: "In an interview published in Wednesday's Peru21 newspaper, Victor Polay acknowledged that the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement has been defeated. 'The moment has arrived for the MRTA to actively join the political fight, within the framework of democracy,' said Polay, using the group's initials in Spanish. He said he would like authorities to grant amnesty to imprisoned MRTA guerrillas." Yahoo News / AP MRTA has not been a player since the late 1990s, and probably most of its remaining activists, mainly in the coca-growing areas of the Amazon, have been absorbed by Sendero and local drug lords.
