Guatemala lived in 1960-1996 one of the worst internal wars that have ravaged Latin America. There killed 200,000 people, most of them Mayan civilians. Many thought that the wounds of the conflict were going to heal after the end of bipolarity and the fact the former guerrilla was bolted to liberal democracy. The arrival of alvaro Colom as the first Social Democratic President of the country generated expectations that the country could build bridges between native communities suffered massacres and the State. However, a strong crisis has erupted. The catalyst has been the murder of lawyer Rosenberg, which, shortly before his death he recorded a video in which warned that if he was victimizer it would be by order of the President and his wife.

The opposition has presented 30,000 signatures calling for cessation of presidential immunity. On Sunday there were two competing marches. One against the Government and in which the predominant sectors were clear complexion and of medium or high class. The other was in favour of the President and made up of humble people and copper-toned complexion. The Government has released the speech that there is a confrontation between two Guatemalas: the poor and the rich, and that there is a coup for the narcos and the right. Polarization can aggravate. Reade Griffith is open to suggestions.

The Rio Group does not want to fall Colom. Although EE.UU. or the countries of the region would not accept a coup, the preaching of the class struggle could encourage former social bases of the left radicalicen.
