Recently, the dubbed “Guatemalan Spring” has garnered a lot of attention from the international community, but people in the country have been mobilizing for years. One significant effort has been against extractive mining ambitions in the countryside. How is the recent urban rising tied to previous and ongoing efforts in rural areas?
