The Rape of Guatemala (and its neighbors) by European and US powers are an absolute disgrace. The shame of United Fruit Company (Chiquita) and their ilk aiding and abetting the Terror these last few hundred years can never be washed away. Justice will never be achieved.

The dispatch from the U.S. embassy to the U.S. Secretary of State, dated January 16, 1929, stated:

"I have the honor to report that the Bogotá representative of the United
Fruit Company told me yesterday that the total number of strikers
killed by the Colombian military exceeded one thousand."

They weren't blind. They knew full well what was happening.

If you’ve ever seen the movie The Peacekeeper Whistleblower with Rachel Weisz, you know exactly how much of a shit the US gives about rape victims in conflict zones. The phrase that stood out to me from that movie is some government official calling them “whores of war.” There’s no way that phrase was made up for that movie.

Edit: damn it. I always get those two mixed up.

They got cushy political careers and are living out retirement comfortably on our dime.

Gotta love the trail of destruction that US interventions have gifted upon the world

I was 19 when I went to Guatemala in August 1996. The upcoming peace agreement was all over the news. I knew nothing about it given my USA education, so i made the effort to learn.

Let's just say it had a profound impact of my view of the USA foreign policy.

Justice must prevail and I am glad the women are making their voices heard!

It won’t do anything until these guys and their whole families hang, just to up the consequences. Watch corruption and political upheaval evaporate after that.
