Letter to the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank, responding to a denigrating letter from the World Bank and no response from the Inter-American Development Bank to the on-going demands for justice and reparations
GIVEN THE GOVERNMENT'S LACK OF WILL TO SIGN THE GOVERNMENT AGREEMENT TO IMPLEMENT THE REPARATIONS PLAN FOR THE HARMS AND DAMAGES TO OUR COMMUNIITES CAUSED BY THE CONSTRUCITON OF THE CHIXOY DAM, WE HEREBY DELCARE THAT:
Internationally-funded Guatemalan bio-fuel interests evict Mayan Qeqchi families from their historic lands, destroying homes and crops, killing one, injuring more, thousands are without food or shelter
To make a long story short (a story of work and struggle for memory, truth and justice, a struggle against denial and impunity), the growing clamour for truth and justice, compensation and reparations continued to grow from 1996 though to 2004. Still the government of Guatemala and your banks denied and delayed.
