Guatemala CODECA has mobilized and has taken to the streets. Thelma Cabrera with her strength and voice that are dignity, is part of this movement. “The worst pandemic for Guatemala is corruption, the thief of the oligarchy and the model of the Nation State,” she says.
The CODECA, the Peasant Development Committee, convener of the march, accuses Giammattei of having indebted the country in an dark way since he became president just over a year ago. He also reproaches him for not fighting against state corruption and for not investigating the crimes of several peasant leaders and the kidnapping and murder of several girls. Under his government, he concludes, the pandemic has made the rich richer and the poor poorer: 59% of the population, according to official data.
