Title:[Interview with Carlos Chen Osorio]
Abstract:Interview with Carlos Chen Osorio about his activities as the founder of the Association of Widows, Widowers, Orphans, and Displaced of Rabinal Maya-Achí, including advocating for compensation and lands for people displaced by the Chixoy dam. He talks about the obstacles they face, and how they are also seeking justice, not vengeance, for the massacres. He talks about the Maya-Achi museum that he and Jesús Tecú Osorio hope to open, and his hopes for Guatemala in the future. He describes the history of land reform and struggles that led to the massacre of indigenous communities in the 1980s. He says that Mexico is employing a similar tactic of labeling indigenous people who are claiming their rights as "guerillas."
