Exhumations at La Verbena: The Time has Come, with this Evidence, to seek Justice

“Members of the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation (FAFG) have now been working for seven months on the landmark exhumations at La Verbena Cemetery. Without a doubt, this is the most complex and ambitious project in search of the 45,000 detained-disappeared, victims of Guatemala’s State-induced terrorism against its citizens primarily during the 1970s and 80s.”

The latest from James Rodriguez – mimundo.org – is self-explanatory but do spare a thought for those who attended the inauguration of the exhumations, many of whom called out the names of those family members who had disappeared and were met with the collective ‘presente’ – present – a powerful reclamation in Latin America.

Also available here is a radio interview, in Spanish, with James on 95.1 FM Estereo Plata, from Zacatecas, Mexico.
