In recent weeks, there has been a dramatic wave of violence and repression
in Guatemala that has led to the deaths of many human rights activists.
Among them are peasant leaders, trade unionists, journalists and indigenous

In light of this, the Guatemala Peace and Development Network (RPDG) has
sent out an urgent request for support and solidarity from around the world
to bring pressure to bear on the Guatemalan government to halt this

In Sydney, the Latin America Social Forum and Commitee for Human Rights in
Guatemala have called for support for an international open letter to
Guatemalan President Otto Perez in protest at this wave of violence.

You can read the full letter and the current list if signatories,
If you wish to add your name, emailfred.fuentes at gmail.com and
