  •  Peace statue (none)
    Guatemalans are just as capable as anyone else of having a peace memorial and not being peaceful.  We don't own the rights to hypocrisy.

    They have a long way to go.  A long way. Rios Montt finished 3rd in the first round of voting!  In December, they elected a pro-business conservative.

    I'm not writing this to disrespect Guatemala.

    I write this so people might consider supporting NISGUA.  An organization that is helping to support human rights efforts there.  Please don't consider their journey to peace to have succeeded.  This effort needs support.  You can find NISGUA at www.nisgua.org.

    Thanks,

    A former accompanier.
