American Widow’s Story of Her Mayan Activist Husband’s Death — and US Complicity
Following up on our two-parter on the US and Guatemala, here’s the astonishing tale of CIA complicity in the death of a Guatemalan indigenous Mayan activist, as told by his American wife. Video.
Earlier this week, we ran a two-parter on the US, Guatemala, corruption, the CIA, genocide, torture, and more. Reader interest was considerable.
We now invite you to watch this video of a presentation made by Jennifer Harbury, an American whose late Guatemalan husband, a Mayan indigenous activist, was “disappeared” by the military. After hunger strikes and investigations, she learned that Efraín Bámaca Velásquez had been tortured and then killed — and that the CIA knew all about it. Her story is a powerful one.
