National Council of Churches Leads International Ecumenical Delegation Key will be an international ecumenical delegation visit to Guatemala April 8-12. The delegation is being organized by the (U.S.) National Council of Churches (NCC) in response to invitations from 1992 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchú Tum and from the Rev. Vitalino Similox, Director of the Ecumenical Forum of Guatemala, through which both Protestant and Catholic churches are working for implementation of the peace accords. The centerpiece of their visit will be a day-long "Peace and Reconciliation Consultation," bringing together between 40-50 leaders of Guatemala’s churches and civil society on April 10 in Guatemala City. NCC General Secretary Bob Edgar and Guatemalan Roman Catholic Archbishop Quezada Y Toruño are convening this meeting. Co-convenors are the Latin American Council of Churches (CLAI) and the World Council of Churches (WCC). The NCC-led delegation’s mission is to support Guatemala’s churches in their efforts to reactivate implementation of peace accords signed in 1996 by the government and rebels after more than 35 years of armed conflict. More than 200,000 people were killed or "disappeared" and presumed dead. Most of these casualties were attributed to the government and its paramilitary allies.

Title: UNITED NATIONS: Asked to listen more to human rights victims
new york, nov 18 (ips) rigoberta menchu, the 1992 nobel peace

to victims of political repression than to governments of member-
states which refuse to respect human rights.

on tuesday, menchu criticised the united nations for ''giving a more positive treatment to the governments rather than the people who suffer from the consequences of their repressive policies''. menchu said the violations are forgotten when a government presents a report to the u.n. special commission on human rights

Press Release Archives Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu Tum lectures at UI Nov. 12
IOWA CITY, Iowa 1992 Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu Tum, who distinguished herself as a human rights advocate for Guatemala's indigenous peoples, will present a lecture, "The Universal Declaration and Human Rights," at 8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 12 at Macbride Hall Auditorium at the University of Iowa. Menchu was labeled a communist and several attempts on her life and her associates' lives were made by Guatemalan authorities when she began working through the Committee of Peasant Unity and speaking on behalf of her people nearly two decades ago. Menchu used political tactics and social work to lessen discrimination against Guatemalans of non-Spanish descent who were denied citizenship by the military-led government the same government that killed her brother, father and mother. Menchu's brother Petrocinio, was kidnapped and burned by military soldiers in 1979 while the family watched. In 1980, Menchu's father, Vincente, was among 39 Indian leaders who died in a fire at Guatemala's Spanish embassy while protesting human rights violations. In a separate incident, her mother, Juana, also a human rights advocate, was raped, tortured and killed one year later.

By Pat Omandam Star-Bulletin If Hawaiians gain political status from the federal government, they must continue to fight to see that the recognition as an indigenous people is fulfilled, says indigenous rights expert Rigoberta Menchu Tum of Guatemala, a 1992 Nobel Peace Prize winner. "In other parts, indigenous peoples have been able to achieve accords and treaties, and many times these treaties and these agreements are not respected," Tum said. "Therefore, our brothers continue to struggle so that these treaties and agreements are fulfilled." Tum, 41, is in Hawaii for a series of speaking events and to serve as a good-will ambassador of peace for the United Nations Education, Scientific and Culture Organization. Tum, who is Mayan, has been working to bring international attention to the plight of Guatemala's indigenous people for nearly two decades. She is a member of the Quiche, one of 22 groups of the Mayan, who constitute 60 percent of Guatemala's population.

Guatemala is currently in a process of conciliation, coordination, and participation by all sectors in pursuit of national unity, peace building, and a system without exclusions of any kind, which places the country in a special situation.

    Guatemala RWI has recently initiated cooperation with the Unit for Indigenous Peoples Rights at the Human Rights Ombudsman Office in Guatemala (PDH). The cooperation encompasses two main areas during 2002-2003: 1). Production of Training Guides/ Information Materials; and
    2). T raining Programme on Indigenous Peoples' Rights. 1. Training Guides/ Information Materials In consultation with the Institute, the PDH will produce two training manuals on human rights and indigenous peoples’ rights, one specifically for training of civil servants and staff at PDH and another to be used for training of trainers’ sessions within indigenous organisations. In addition, there will be materials produced for spreading information about human rights in popularised form e.g. by posters, radio announcements and brochures. Several of the popularised materials will be translated into the four main Maya languages; K´iche´, Mam, Q´eqchi´ y Kaqchikel. One person will be contracted by PDH for three months in order to produce the publications.

    Indigenous People Demand Constitutional Reforms
    Centr-Am News, September 20 - October 3, 1998. Some 3,000 Guatemalan campesinos blocked highways to demand approval of changes to the Guatemalan constitution that would benefit the indigenous people. The peace accords signed on December 29, 1996 ending the 36-year long civil war were in danger of falling apart because, without constitutional reforms, there is no legal basis to enforce the accords.
    Peace Has Not Curtailed Indigenous Poverty
    By Celina Zubieta, IPS, 19 July 1999. After many years in the mountains fleeing the civil war, the Ixil and Quiche indigenous peoples now have peace, but they also have precarious housing and they lack food on their community farms. They include members of the Comunidades de Poblaciones en Resistencia (CPR) who did not participate in the armed conflict, but were considered guerrillas by the Guatemalan army.
    Mob Attacks Guatemala Police Station
    AP, 16 October 2001. A group of 1,000 Indians attacked a police station in a rural area in northern Guatemala, Concepcion Huista, 220 miles north of Guatemala City. The people were angered when authorities made no arrest in the shooting death of a local man. Many believed police officers were responsible for the slaying.

    - Central America/ Mexico -
    Statement submitted by Gloria Pereira on behalf of the Social Justice Committee to the annual Human Rights Consultations between the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade and Non-Government Organizations. February 27, 2002. The human rights situation in Guatemala The Social Justice Committee is very concerned with the state of the human rights situation in Guatemala and the lack of compliance with the Peace Agreements. Most of the Agreements re-scheduled for 2001 have not been fulfilled. The Peace Agreements have not meant a difference in the standard of living for those suffering social exclusion such as indigenous people, peasants, and poor women. For them the only peace benefit is the end of the armed conflict. MINUGUA has stated that since mid-1998 there is "stagnation and signs of deterioration" of the human rights situation in Guatemala. The deteriorating of the human rights situation is seen in threats and attacks to members of the judicial system and trial witnesses, to other human rights defenders and to members of the media. At the end of 2001, this situation prompted the president of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission, Claudio Grossman, to open a file on intimidation to human rights defenders in Guatemala. The ever-present impunity is assessed by MINUGUA as "the main obstacle to the effective enjoyment of human rights". MINUGUA believes that among the contributing factors are consistent shortcomings in the administration of justice, continuing failure to fulfill the obligation to investigate and punish, unwillingness of many officials to tackle human rights violations and crimes. Emblematic cases have shown a pattern of obstruction of justice and abuse of legal resources with dilatory purposes.
