Tell the World Bank and IDB to pay reparations to Guatemalans

In 1982, 400 people were massacred, with many more displaced, tortured, raped and starved, to make way for a hydroelectric dam which the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank were funding in Guatemala.

Despite agreement that reparations must be paid in this case, to date survivors and families of the massacre have received nothing.
