Quotes

"Police attempted to prevent the protest and there was a brawl" Pascual said. "A Maya Chariti woman was injured by bullets."
"Criminal networks co-opted the justice system so that they would receive protection, so that they would receive alerts, and so that they wouldn't be prosecuted" Rivera Claveria told me
..."Oh, okay. But where were the permits for the animals?" I know there are no permits for animals, but I just played along. "Oh, those animals are not mine. We’re just going to drop them off at the vet in Chiquimula."
"We walked into the village as children gathered around us and asked for photos," she said. "We were surrounded by poverty, but the kids were so proud of their homes and couldn't wait to show them off. Something that should have been depressing ended up being a really positive experience, because of their happiness."
