Allegations of a Dead Man

According to respected Guatemalan lawyer Rodrigo Rosenberg, Guatemala’s government is infested with corruption. His message is carried very powerfully to fellow Guatemalans and the world in a video he taped before his murder last week.

YouTube has a role as a powerful engine of dissent and government transparency. It’s a commercial, profit-making business, and it is laying bricks on the path to human rights and the rule of law worldwide.

The Cato Institute’s Juan Carlos Hidalgo writes briefly about developments since then on the Cato@Liberty blog.

    We have a long way to go in the fight against the murders and the fascists suppoorted by the US government that are terrorizing the populace of much of the world. Youtube helps certainly.

    Those who built and maintain the Guatemalan government were largely trained at the School of the Americas, in Fort Benning, Georgia:

    More information on the School for the Americas, now renamed Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, see the website http://www.soaw.org, which also tracks the victims of the graduates from the School of the Americas, estimated now in the tens of thousands. The annual vigil held each November now attracts almost 20,000 protesters.

    “Sources at the [SOA] say that when…soldiers go through the urban-combat exercise with blanks in their weapons, half the time the village priest (played by a U.S. Army chaplain) is killed or roughed up.”
    –Newsweek Magazine, August 9, 1993

    At the end of this week, Representative Jim McGovern will reintroduce the Latin America Military Training Review Act! In the 110th Congress, this legislation was known as HR 1707 and for more information about the bill and whether your Member of Congress supported it, check out http://www.SOAW.org/legislative
