The Mayan population in Guatemala still fight to keep their languages alive

The US government has long supported the genocidal Guatemalan military and business community and continues to do so. However, the Mayan people remain resilient in their continued struggles against this oppression. Al jazeera has an excellent film about the current struggle to keep the Mayan languages alive there which is well worth watching for any that support and have interest in the struggle for indigenous rights anywhere. Living the Language – Guatemala: The Maya.

    … and the exploited workers in Nicaragua continue to make t-shirts sold by NMT on this website through PayPal – ain’t Capitalism grand?

    Publius, you show your total ignorance of Nicaraguan capitalism and its effects on that country. Might I ask where you have traveled to outside of the US?

    And as to capitalism in Guatemala AND Nicaragua, the US corporation run government spent billions upon billions of our US public tax monies to kill several hundred thousands of Guatemalans and Nicaraguans in order to force their US fed capitalism on those 2 peoples, as they also did as well in El Salvador. Kind of a bloody record I would say.

    Been to Managua… lovely this time of year…

    Lived and traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East… Caribbean… Central America… all 50 states…

    Worked above the Arctic Circle for a couple months…

    Travel quite frequently to Canada…

    In all my travels, I’ve never seen faux activists like you, Eric, and BJ… selling “peace” t-shirts made in Nicaragua using PayPal… while criticizing the teat that feeds you… hypocrites, all.

    Publius, you are such a bullshit artist. Nobody who has been to Managua any time of the year calls the place ‘lovely’. You’ve never been to Nicaragua at all.

    My passport reflects differently… you would be surprised by the ex-pat community there…Victoria beers at the Café Las Flores in Plaza Viejo are a particularly fond memory…

  6. Avatar Pubilius says:

    By the way – should your personal attack against me indicate that all you can do is hope to divert attention from the fact that you are still selling t-shirts made in Nicaragua through PayPal on your website?

  7. Avatar Tony Logan says:

    Not surprised at all by the fact that you know that there are lots of US citizen land grabbers out that way, but you still know shit about the country of Nicaragua. And like I have already said…. Nobody who has ever been there in Managua in their right mind has ever called Managua lovely’ at any time of the year as you just did. Not even as a sick sick joke!

    You are as phony as they get and a LIAR about that will make you a liar about just everything you say, Publius. I think you spend almost all your spare time most probably just listening nonstop to US Right Winger blabber jabber shows. That is when you’re not busy trying to bait us at places like NMT.

    (Eric, please tell us again why we allow some of these nitwit Wing NUTS to filter through to waste our time in this way? Publius is just way too much of an asshole to want to stomach too much longer.)

    PS, Publius… ‘plaza’ is feminine and ‘viejo’ is masculine. Learn how to put your nouns and adjectives together properly, Dumbshit.

    Tony, we debunked Pubes’ Honduras T-shirt accusation two years ago, when we provided the link to the fair trade supplier we were using.

    Pubes/JaniceHeuberger is fairly typical of these louts who rehash themes under the pretense that they’ve never been rebutted.
