ImmigrationProf Blog: Guatemalan Massacre Survivor Granted Asylum

From ProPublica:

ProPublica’s Sebastian Rotella reports that a man who survived a Guatemalan massacre that left 250 people dead and moved to the U.S., was granted political asylum on Saturday and may remain in America.

ProPublica and This American Life reported on the story of Oscar Ramírez Castañeda earlier this year, explaining how he had been abducted as a 3-year-old boy by an officer in a commando unit that wiped out all of the residents in the small village of Dos Erres, Guatemala. Ramírez Castañeda, who was too young to remember what happened, was raised by the commando’s family and then left Guatemala to move to America. Guatemalan prosecutors eventually found Ramírez Castañeda and used his DNA as evidence to help convict five soldiers who participated in the massacre. And last Friday, another suspect was extradicted to the U.S. on immigration charges related to the case.

Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact." George Orwell
