Ambassadors of the USA, Mexico and Canada participate in film forum

Ambassador Luis Arreaga participated with Ambassador Deborah Chatsis of the Embassy of Canada in Guatemala and Ambassador Luis Lopez of the Embassy of Mexico in Guatemala in the film forum entitled #JusticiaParaEllxs. This initiative unites the efforts of the three embassies, as part of the campaign of 16 Days of activism to promote Gender Equality and respect for the rights of girls and women.

In the activity, the documentary “Justice for my Sister” was screened, which tells the story of a victim of femicide in Escuintla and the struggle of her family to do justice and the threat that exists towards women in Guatemala due to violence based in gender.

The screening was followed by a panel with guests Norma Cruz, Carolina Escobar, Ricardo May and Miriam Roquel, where they discussed the responsibilities of the Government, Private Sector and Citizens to combat this serious problem, which stands out in the country as the crime more reported, according to the Public Ministry of Guatemala.
