In the early 1980s, at the height of the Guatemalan civil war, genocide and repression, the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank invested close to $1 billion in the Chixoy hydroelectric dam project. Thirty-two Mayan Achi communities were forcibly and illegally displaced to make way for the dam, and hundreds of indigenous people were massacred. Thirty years later, survivors are still struggling for truth, justice and comprehensive reparations. If “development” comes through the barrel of the gun, then what kind of “development” are we talking about? they ask.
