Abstract:

In the early 1980's a military coup, backed by the CIA and sanctioned by President Reagan, took control in Guatemala. The military junta has since been responsible for a reign of terror against the indigenous peasant Civilion population who had sought land reform. Hundreds of villages were destroyed and thousands of men, women and children were brutally murdered by army death squads. The only alternatives for them were resettlement in "model villages" where forced labor and human rights abuses are common or flight across the border into Mexico to a life of extreme hardship and poverty in refugee camps, Years later these camps still exit, while negotiations with the Guatemalan government continue for the collective return of the thousands of refugees. A searing inditement of both the Guatemalan government and United States foreign policy in Latin America.
