Our work this year focused on the connections between movements for indigenous rights and community self-determination, struggles against military and police violence, and grassroots efforts to protect land. NISGUA has long worked in solidarity with Guatemalan communities resisting the impacts of imperialism abroad. With an expanded U.S. presence in 2016, we are working with increased capacity to draw links between communities struggling for self-determination and justice in Guatemala and in the U.S.
As we reflect on the past year, we are filled with heartfelt gratitude for all of our current and former accompaniers, sponsoring communities, interns, house party and tour hosts, generous donors, and friends that not only took action and stood up for justice, but also continue to financially sustain our work. Join us in celebrating all we have accomplished together as a network in 2016!
