“Uncovering the Real Root Causes of Forced Migration"

This year, NISGUA took trans-territorial organizing to a whole new level. In March, we welcomed U.S. Congress members Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Cori Bush, and Rep. Jamaal Bowman, as well as representatives from the offices of Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Rep. Chuy García to Guatemala to learn about the real root causes of forced migration: neoliberal resource extraction, state corruption and impunity, violence and criminalization against Indigenous peoples and human rights defenders, and more.

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."
