Former police chief sentenced for assault on Spanish embassy
Louisa Reynolds*

Thirty seven people died burnt in the Spanish embassy in 1981 on the orders of dictator Romeo Lucas García and senior police officers.

On Jan. 31, 1980 a peasant organization, the Committee for Campesino Unity (CUC) together with a group of students from the Robin García Student Front (FERG) occupied the Spanish embassy. Long before the advent of social media and with news corporations heavily censored by Romeo Lucas García’s military regime (1978-82), occupying embassies was a desperate strategy often used by guerrilla organizations to draw the world’s attention to the massacres perpetrated by the Guatemalan army in the highlands.see more
