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
Crisanto Cuc Xol is free! We demand freedom for all indigenous and peasant political prisoners!
July 27 2014: Thanks in part to the GSP and our supporters, Q'eqchi' community leader/political prisoner Crisanto Xol was released from prison last week. Xol also no longer has a home to go to.His home was burned down after he was illegally detained on November 30, 2013. Xol and the GSP are requesting continued solidarity with Saquimo Setana and other indigenous and peasant communities in Guatemala which are organizing for justice.
