Guatemalan Elections

5 August 1995

The 26th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, August 1-6, 1995 in Helsinki, Finland:

The 26th International WILPF Congress calls on the Organization of American States to monitor the Guatemalan elections scheduled to take place in November 1995.  The obscured background of presidential candidate Rios‐Montt has allowed for human rights violations of thousands of indigenous people in other countries of Central America and has severely undermined the process of democratic elections in this region.
