As you might know Guatemala is going through a social, economical and political unrest.
Even tough I am an economist I do not enjoy writing about economics or politics so I really don't want to go on depth on this matter (if you want to read more, you can read a blog I like a lot: Carpe Diem, although most posts are in Spanish he throws some in English here and there).
This post is to share with you, dear reader, that we attended the Vigil for Peace Saturday May 30th. This is one of various peaceful protests that finally are being organized, attended and supported by the guatemalan of no political agenda other than the desire of the cease of violence, impunity and corruption.
The Vigil was at Obelisco, those of you who have been in Guatemala City undoubtedly passed by it. It is in the "four corners" of Zone 10, Zone 9, Zone 13 and Zone 14. It is a round plaza at the end of Avenida Reforma with a monument in honor of the founding fathers of Guatemala. At the activity we prayed, sang the national anthem, support and encourage each other and in general we build a sense of patriotism and of urge to find the means to be heard.
