Solidarity Fund for Detained Activists in Xela, GT

On November 21, marches and protests across Guatemala ended with excessive police force and the violent detaining of several protestors. Among them is my cousin who was detained with others in Xela and we are asking for donations to support all the protestors detained. All who were detained were assaulted by the police and need medical care as well as legal fees. We are happy that they have been released to their families, but we know this will be a long road for them because Guatemala has decided to start prosecuting land and human rights defenders as criminals.

This is our initial goal for emergency funds and as things keep moving on the ground in Xela we might increase it to reflect the actual need.
 
We appreciate any support you can offer, Maltyox Chawe!

El 21 de noviembre, las marchas y protestas en Guatemala terminaron con una fuerza policial excesiva y la detención violenta de varios manifestantes. Entre ellos está mi primo que fue detenido con otras personas en Xela y estamos pidiendo donaciones para apoyar a todos los manifestantes detenidos. Todos los detenidos fueron agredidos por la policía y necesitan atención médica y gastos legales. Estamos felices de que hayan sido entregados a sus familias, pero sabemos que será un largo camino para ellos porque Guatemala ha decidido comenzar a procesar a los quien defienden la tierra y los derechos humanos como criminales.

Este es nuestro objetivo inicial para los fondos de emergencia y, a medida que las cosas sigan avanzando en Xela, podríamos aumentarlo para reflejar la necesidad actual.
 
Agradecemos el apoyo que pueda ofrecer. Maltyox Chawe.
