Rosalina Tuyuc

Language: English

Guatemalan Genocide survivor and activist Rosalina Tuyuc shares her message to future generations. This is the English translation: “The great thing is that all this violence did not take everything away from us because we still have life—a lot of knowledge. At times we learn to survive when surrounded by death. And our greatest contribution is to tell all people, no matter where in the world, that war is no good. In all wars it is always a question of business, of power, of crushing the weaker, the helpless. It is for them that I wish that no family, no people or any other town should consider weapons as the only option. Rather, the option to live is our word, our work. It is also our commitment to continue to work to live life.”
