Learn about historical memory and the struggles of today with Wendy Mendez, founding member of HIJOS, sons and daughters of the disappeared in Guatemala.
Wendy came to Canada as a refugee after her mother was disappeared by the Guatemalan military, then returned to spend the last nine years working for truth and justice in Guatemala.
Wendy will share her own story and experiences with HIJOS in the trial of ex-dictator Rios Montt and trace connections between past repression/genocide and the neo-liberal economic interests of today, including mining projects.
