Guatemala Series

Loyal Readers may be interested in the NPR series, Unearthing the Future, completed this week focusing on the intersection of human rights and technology in Guatemala. One of the featured stories focuses on the use of forensic anthropology in human rights investigations, a subject familiar to our Readers who read Clea Koff's Bone Woman, and highlights the work of the Forensic Anthropology Foundation of Guatemala. A few of you may recall taking action on behalf of members of the Foundation who received death threats (see Guatemala: Human rights defenders at risk). The series page has plenty of slideshows and links even if you're not inclined to take in the audio. Then visit here to take action on behalf of an Italian environmentalist working with indigenous peoples in Guatemala who has been the recipient of threats for his work.
