Intensive Guatemala Solidarity Delegation, June 13-19, 2016 Join the Guatemala Solidarity Project this June 13-19 for an "Intensive Solidarity Delegation." We will meet with courageous, primarily indigenous peasant leaders who are organizing to resist environmental destruction and genocidal violence. We will learn about tactics and strategies being used by grassroots organizers and indigenous communities in resisting so-called "development projects" that steal Guatemala's natural wealth and leave behind death and destruction.
