Days of Papering


This is from a new photomontage from James Rodríguez and MiMundo.

Next month, it will be 10 years since HIJOS Guatemala began their struggle in search of memory, truth and justice with reference to crimes against humanity committed by the Guatemalan state during the armed conflict. HIJOS is the acronym, in Spanish, for Sons and Daughters for Identity and Justice and against Forgetfulness and Silence.

The title is Jornadas de Empapeladas, or Days of Papering, which sums the article up. Interestingly, empapelar, as a verb, also means to create or open a file in a criminal process against someone.
