Chapter Six looks at the events in Laos after the Vietnamese ceasefire agreement. Not a month after, the Royal Laotian government (RLG) and the communist-inspired Lao Patriotic Front (LPF) signed an agreement on the restoration of peace and reconciliation in Laos, which ushered in a period of major political and military changes in Lao, primarily the rapid diminution of both the frequency and intensity of military hostilities. It stipulated that a new provisional government of national unity (PGNU) and a joint national political council would be formed. In 1975, the LPF managed to covertly spread student dissension in Ban Houei Sai and Thakhek and in early May, several organizations assembled in Vientane, marched in protest to the U.S. embassy. This started a series of events that culminated with an attack on the USAID compound in Luang Probang, and the ultimate U.S. evacuation of dependents and non-essential personnel.
