During the 1980s, a military government in Guatemala, supported by the Reagan administration, waged a brutal war that left tens of thousands people dead. Because the military exterminated entire villages of indigenous people in the Guatemalan highlands, the U.N.-mediated truth and reconciliation commission in 1999 concluded that "acts of genocide" had been committed. Since this age of terror, Guatemalans have struggled for justice to hold responsible those who committed the atrocious crimes. In 2008, Guatemala hosted the Americas Social Forum, where over 7,000 delegates from 350 organizations gathered to discuss how to bring about a more democratic, equitable, and just world. As one participant noted, “social forums provide an important service by allowing the people of the world, the citizens of this planet to discuss amongst ourselves and to build the world that we want.”
