This book shows the true power of photography to capture human emotion in all of it's extreme forms. Definitely brings meaning to the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. He captures his subjects in deep and dramatic ways.

Latin American holocaust Nov. 4 2006
By Preston C. Enright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Few US citizens are aware that, just 20 years ago, there was a mass killing that took place in Guatemala to serve elite interests of Western "civilization." It seems the corporate cowboys of the Wild West won't rest until every indigenous population is destroyed. There is hardly a group of people outside of the economic system designed by massive conglomerates that is safe. Civic organizations like "Cultural Survival" and "Amazon Watch" do a great job of showing respect for those humans who have a way of being in the world that, while it doesn't satisfy Wall Street, provides contentment for many people (and important lessons for the rest of humanity).

It's been good to see a resurgence of indigenous activism and solidarity over that past decade, including the election of Evo Morales in Bolivia.

"Our Culture is Our Resistance" is a beautiful book that I purchased during a fundraiser of the Denver Justice and Peace Committee - one of countless groups in the world that are doing important work to create some moments of peace and understanding every now and again.

I was so glad to discover that the text is bilingual, so I'm going to buy additional copies here on Amazon for friends of mine in Latin America, and Spanish-speaking immigrants here in the empire.

As citizens of the world's militaristic superpower, we have an obligation to make some efforts to break down the lack of awareness that creates the climate for injustice.

"While in Guatemala, I saw clearly that violence and war caused tremendous pain and left many wounds. Fear and pain still permeate the culture, and the deep psychological and cultural wounds have already begun to pass to a new generation. . . I have come to believe that we must all strive to bring witness to this world, and we must raise our voices in a collective cry for peace with justice for all human beings."

-Jonathan Muller, from the Introduction

As another teaching tool, I'd also recommend the DVD "When the Mountains Tremble."
