Less than a month after taking office, new Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales is already threatening to take violent action against hundreds of q’eqchi’ families in northern Guatemala. “Eviction” orders have been placed against GSP partner communities Parana and Bella Flor, as well as others. These evictions would steal ancestral land from indigenous communities and give it to large land owners to produce biofuels for export while local populations starve.
Intern with the GSP!
The Guatemala Solidarity Project is accepting applications for Spring 2016 interns. The internship is based out of our Washington, DC office. We are also accepting applications from interns not in the DC area who are interested in video editing, translation and other work that can be done from a distance. Pictured above are Spring 2015 interns Daniel Ibanez and Khalil Watson. We would like to thank activist/film maker Robin Lloyd for making the internship possible.
