Timoteo Chen is Free!

Timoteo Chen Tun

September 2, 2015: Thanks in part to supporters of the Guatemala Solidarity Project, former political prisoner Timoteo Chen Tun has been released after spending over a year in jail on false charges! Shortly after being released, an arrest warrant was ordered against Chen on a new set of false charges. Chen is a community leader and health worker who should be honored for his longstanding commitment to others. Instead he is targeted for organizing nonviolent action against the theft of indigenous lands by the company Hidro Santa Rita.
