Right now I am privileged to be in Guatemala, as part of a team hosting this fabulous gathering of Indigenous women from all over Mesoamerica. Members of JASS and Sinergia Nój will be sharing our knowledge with and learning from the diverse experiences that participants will bring to this skills sharing and training exercise. We have an exciting program scheduled and are ready to welcome the women. We invite you to join us, along with our allies at FIRE, for a live radio transmission from one of the dialogue sessions:
In the biggest crackdown on Filipino activists since the Marcos era, 43 community health workers, including two pregnant women, were detained while conducting a training seminar and reportedly tortured on suspicion of being Communist rebels.
