Probably not a coincidence that this is occurring during the trial of the

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
peoples.
