Crisis along the Rio Dulce in Guatemala: the death of Mario Caal

Photo of Mario Caal’s body as he was found: Anti-Imperialist Block

“The imposing Rio Dulce (SweetRiver), a spectacular body of water which connects LakeIzabal with the Caribbean port city of Livingston, measures approximately 35 kilometers (or 22 miles) in length. Such trajectory is without a doubt one of Guatemala’s principal tourist attractions. Nevertheless, this same area has witnessed during the past month the development of a transcendental conflict which, appropriately analyzed, reveals the somber truth beneath current Guatemalan internal affairs.”

Written by James Rodríguez, this photo-essay continues his good work, as witnessed in Upside Down World>.
