The Mayan People constitute about half of the population of Guatemala. The majority live in remote mountainous areas where they are left to live or die.

They live discrimination, exclusion and deep-rooted racism. While there is no functional state to protect its own citizens, the Mayan People survive through hard work, organization at community level and mayan historical spirituality. The rising number of conflicts in the country is concentrated around the investments made by multinational companies in mega-projects, searching for gold, energy, petroleum and other natural resources within Mayan territory. Many people live these mega-projects such as deep lacerations in the community who grub ancient traditions linked to the direct relationship with Mother Earth. Instead of respecting the rights of the Maya peoples as provided by the Constitution and the international conventions, the government protect and promote only those companies that are developing investments in the Mayan territories.
