TORTURE (Feb. 2007, Vol. 16, No. 1)

The Mayan man said, “We did not want to be like them.” That is what he said about why he did not fi ght back when the army came to get him. The Mayan people of Guatemala suffered greatly during the 36-year civil war ending in 1996. Many were tortured, disappeared, or killed. This reality exists in many countries where there is war or where other forms of domination squelch human rights.  The torture that happened in Guatemala still happens in the world today.
