ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 19, 2010, THE GOVERNMENT OF GUATEMALA DECLARED A 30-DAY STATE OF SIEGE IN THE PROVINCE OF ALTA VERAPAZ, TO COMBAT, IT SAYS, THE GROWING INFLUENCE OF NARCO TRAFFICKERS.
THE PROVINCE, WHICH BORDERS MEXICO, HAS BEEN A REFUGE FOR ZETA DRUG GANGS, BUT, ON DECEMBER 21ST, PEASANT AND INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY LEADERS HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN GUATEMALA TO DEMAND THE END OF THE STATE OF SIEGE AND PROTEST THE RECENTLY ANNOUNCED 25% INCREASE SIZE OF THE GUATEMALAN ARMY NEXT YEAR.
ON FRIDAY, WBAI FRED NGUYEN SPOKE VIA CELL PHONE WITH PALMER LEGARE, FROM THE GUATEMALA SOLIDARITY PROJECT, TO GET AN UPDATE ON THE SITUATION.
BECAUSE THE CALL WAS MADE TO A REMOTE AREA OF GUATEMALA, THE SOUND QUALITY OF THE INTERVIEW YOU ARE ABOUT TO HEAR IS NOT IDEAL, SO PLEASE LISTEN CLOSELY:
