San José Poaquil

San José Poaquil is a municipality in the Chimaltenango depairtment o Guatemala. San José Poaquil, lik mony ither Mayan indigenous touns throuoot the wastren hielands, suffered greatly unner the severe militar repression o the early 1980s. In 2002, 76 human remains wur exhumit frae mass graves bi the Forensic Anthropology Foondation o Guatemala (FAFG). Accordin tae locals, the 76 bodies that FAFG recovered represent a minimal portion o the municipality's residents that wur killed or disappeared in the violence. Lik ither pairts in Guatemala, reconciliation in Poaquil is complicatit bi the fact that the perpetrators o the violence, mony o whom wur forcibly conscriptit intae the militar's Ceevil Defence Patrols (PAC), still live amangst thair victims.
