Defensora Debuts in the US

The Documentary Defensora, about the Mayan Q’eqchi’ community El Estor’s resistance against mining in Guatemala, debuts in the United States. The link to the Defensora website is here: http://www.defensorathefilm.com/ and my pots tagged German Chub Choc detail the awe-inspiring courage of the El Estor Community with a focus on German Chub Choc, a Mayan Q’eqchi man who sustained a spinal cord injury after he was shot in an unprovoked attack by a security guard from HudBay Minerals.
