School: What do you know about the Guatemalan Civil War?
Our final assignment in my International Criminal Law class is a paper detailing a region where genocide, crimes against humanity, or war crimes may have been committed. It isn't that hard, sadly, to find places where atrocities have occurred, but I think a lot of people are going to do the usual suspects (Kosovo, Rwanda, Darfur, etc.). For my paper, I managed to find an interesting (and much lesser-known) region of conflict: Guatemala.
Makes you wanna pack up your bags and flee to Mexico, no?
