Harvest of empire( Visual )

This powerful documentary exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration

Guatemala's Indian Mayan majority lives in terror of its own government. Up to 45,000 Mayans 'disappeared' between 1986 and 1996 - victims of a brutal 'ethnic cleansing' campaign. Grieving widows watch in horror as aid workers dig up mass graves containing hundreds of skeletons. Mayan Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu speaks of the injustices from her home in Mexico. She fled Guatemala after her family was tortured and killed. In a Mayan village where families struggle to feed survivors of the years of fear, a leader shows scars inflicted because he dared to protest. Mayan leaders march to the Guatemalan parliament to demand basic human rights and self-determination. Government officials talk of moderation but President Deleon Carpio refuses to dissolve the hated patrols. Includes interviews with Guatemalan Defence Minister General Mario Enriquez and Mayan Community Organiser Miguel Sirkookie Muhere

Crossing borders by Rigoberta Menchú( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this, the second instalment of her autobiography, the celebrated Guatemalan Indian leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner picks up the story where her first volume, I, Rigoberta Menohu, ended. In 1981 Rigoberta fled from Guatemala, deeply traumatised by the violence inflicted on her community including the murders of her brother, father and mother. Exiled in Mexico she began building a support movement with the Indians living as outlaws in Guatemala's mountains. In 1988 she returned to Guatemala City where she was immediately arrested and released only after considerable international pressure. Danielle Mitterrand and Desmond Tutu were amongst those who joined a worldwide campaign to secure the Nobel Peace Prize for Rigoberta. Here she describes the events leading up to winning the prize in 1992 and the joyous celebrations which followed in Guatemala. In her role as roving ambassador for indigenous peoples Rigoberta has traversed the globe and her chronicle of these journeys is a thread which winds through this book. But, like its predecessor, Crossing Borders is much more than a political diary. In these pages Rigoberta talks with deep affection about her family and especially her mother, a woman who combined the various roles of peasant leader, midwife and keeper of the community's secrets. She returns again to the traditions of her Mayan background, comparing her people's respect for the village and its environment with the selfish individualism of a modern consumer society she has come to know only as an adult
