January 10, 2015: This week we are asking for solidarity with the Raymundo orphans. Their parents Josefa Solis Raymundo (died December 4, 2013) and Juan Brito Raymundo (died March 20, 2014) were community leaders at our partner community Sajbuta. The entire community is in a struggle against extreme poverty and malnutrition, but they have made a special request to us to support the children so that they can eat and attend school.
Please make a contribution of any size - all funds (other than bank fees) will go directly to support the Raymundo children
Pablo Sacrab hearing suspended yet again. We demand freedom for all indigenous and peasant political prisoners!
January 29 2015: Q'eqchi' peasant leader Pablo Sacrab has been in prison for three and a half years. At times he has been denied food and medicine. We are greatly disturbed that once again his hearing has been delayed and he will be forced to remain in prison on fraudulent charges. We will continue our nonviolent fight for freedom for Sacrab, whose children are suffering from malnutrition while he is unjustly incarcerated.
