Anniversary of the Conviction of Rios Montt

Impunity Watch has produced a new video on the Sepur Zarco case and the effect the case has had on the women, their communities and justice in Guatemala. 

“Changing the face of justice, the women of Sepur Zarco” recognizes the journey of the mayan q’eqchi’ women in their search for justice and how this road has opened doors for others, it becomes a reference point for other women victims of sexual violence during the armed conflict in Guatemala and the world. It shows how the process itself and the demand for reparations is a form of dignifying the women, their word, their history and voice.

You can watch the video in Spanish/Puedes.
