"The cozy relationship between Ríos Montt and the Reagan administration needs to be dug up from the graveyards of history, much like the bodies that are still being dug up from mass graves in Guatemala." (Cyril Mychalejko)
A new year in Guatemala ; same problems of violence, repression and impunity related to mining. The first two weeks of January witnessed outbreaks of violent protests and attacks at three mining operations. Dozens have been wounded; at least 3 people have been killed.
Two articles about the amazing "exhumation process" in Guatemala, that began in 1992! Since 1994, Rights Action has been honoured to fund and otherwise support the exhumation ofmass graves, the re-burial of loved ones, the building of commemorative monuments, and work for individual and collective justice.
