Homeless in Guatemala City

The caption on this photo says Jenifer Gaitan with her 7-month-old infant & neighbor Roxana Pascual were among hundreds of families evicted by military cops from the Jacobo Arbenz settlement in Guatemala City. No further information is available on the settlement, why the families were evicted by military cops, or what the hell they expect hundreds of homeless families to do. You would think a big news agency like Associated Press would exhibit a little curiosity about such a catastrophe. It certainly isn’t because they’re so busy covering the disastrous flooding in China, Japan, North Korea, the Philippines, India, & elsewhere. For those interested in who Jacobo Arbenz was & why there is such immense poverty in Guatemala, this article will be of value: http://www.upsidedownworld.org/main/guatemala-archives-33/3279-justice-and-jacobo-arbenz-in-guatemala-1954-revisited
