Listen here: Human Rights Activist Wendey Mendez

Wendez Mendez speaks upon hearing that Efrain Rios Montt is guilty of genocide in the Ixil region of Guatemala.  “And also because today is Mother’s Day…what a gift…for all of our mothers that were disappeared or that were killed and massacred… on their day for this to be served, that has so much meaning. I don’t know how to explain it…Today, the story has changed…A big chunk of that wall of impunity was crushed away.”
