Guatemalan riots calls for respect to popular vote

Guatemala City, Jul 24 (Prensa Latina) Hundreds of rioters on Monday took to the streets to call for respect to popular vote, following maneuvers described as illegal.

Medical students, health professionals, workers and activists joined the peaceful protest to prove discontent with Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP).

“People listening, Join the struggle!” they shouted along the way, while a group of demonstrators requested an exchange with the nation’s Human Rights Ombudsman Alejandro Cordova.

A student told Cordova that he had not defended or watched over the rights violated in the last weeks.

“We want free elections,” the student showed a sign, whilst participants also noted: “this is not for a party, it is for Guatemala, or the people are in resistance against this false democracy with the flavor of a dictatorship.”
