It's sad news indeed to lose a great activist! Rest in peace LuisIt is with great sadness that we inform you that Luis Maldonado was murdered last night in Huehuetenango. Luis (second from right) was the director of ASDECAFE, the cooperative of coffee producers, and was coordinator of the Huehuetenango Highland Coffee Presidium.
His murder was an execution: He was felled by two shots to the back and one to the skull, fired by two assassins on a motorbike.
His battle for social justice and for the rights of Guatemala’s coffee producers lives on.
