Demand justice in the Bámaca Case and War Crimes Cases in Guatemala

Dear Friends:

Looks like we have reached a crisis point in Guatemala. There is a fierce campaign going on to shut down the paradigmatic war crimes cases against the army leadership from the genocide era.

We must continue to support the war crimes cases. In many ways these cases represent Nuremberg. They are crucial to the peace and healing process in Guatemala and they MUST be allowed to move forward if we are serious about ending the impunity in Guatemala. We need to make a very strong showing to prevent the situation from getting worse.

Thank you and abrazos to all of you. Jennifer
