Guatemala: #NoNosPela

Guatemala: #NoNosPela – from The Red Nation

The Red Nation recently posted a podcast, guest-hosted by Giovanni Batz, and featuring Andrea Ixchíu, Floridalma Boj Lopez, and Alejandro Flores.

They discuss the recent Guatemalan protests and uprising, which were sparked by the recent approval of a budget that reduces funding for human rights and health programs, but which have historical roots.

Topics explored include why people are protesting, government repression, the impacts of the pandemic, and two hurricanes that have devastated Guatemala, and what a future for Guatemala may look like.

Protestors have used the hashtag #NoNosPela on social media to denounce the Guatemalan government.

You can access the English version podcast here, and the Spanish version podcast, here, on The Red Nation.
