Ten deeply moving oral histories reveal the memories and hopes of individuals who have been actively involved in or personally affected by the struggle for labor rights in Guatemala. The speakers include rank-and-file activists, labor organizers, indigenous leaders, and the widows of unionists who were assassinated or disappeared. They speak as veterans of the struggle and as recent recruits, as willing participants and as inadvertent victims. One is a child. Together, their testimonies give personal immediacy to the anguish and the glory of the Guatemalan labor movement.
