Joy as Resistance

On December 6, the NISGUA community gathered for "Joy as Resistance: Trans-territorial organizing amidst global crisis," a beautiful evening of poetry, music, and speeches by our partners. We heard from poets and organizers who shared how they've been organizing across colonially imposed borders and in the midst of a global pandemic.

NGO Law
70+ organizations express concern about Guatemala’s NGO Law
"We reject the implementation of this revised law, given that it violates the freedoms of expression and association and creates a hostile environment for those working to defend human rights. The revised law seeks to silence any public criticism or action that may threaten the state’s power, thereby perpetuating schemes of corruption and impunity."
