Welcome to the Resistance

Back in Guatemala with our friends in the resistance. Their struggle continues in the face of mounting pressure and tension from government and mining companies. Their losses are so great.  Met a woman named Yolanda Oqueli who was shot three months ago, the bullet is still inside of her body. She continues to fight for indigenous land, her attackers have not been arrested. Families take turns at the blockage, women, children and men from the community stand guard.
