Filiberto Celada (foreground), a member of HIJOS Guatemala(Sons and Daughters for the Identity and Justice against Forgetting and Silence) visited McMaster in an informal sharing session with food last Thursday.

HIJOS, born in 1999, is comprised of children of the disappeared and murdered, along with students, workers and professionals in Guatemala. They engage in public events, protests, political art/murals to preserve historical memory, combat impunity, human rights atrocities, and face other issues threatening Guatemalans today.

The event was hosted by OPIRG McMaster’s Guatemalan Working Group, and the McMaster Chaplancy Centre.
