The Marines are deployed as part of Operation Martillo, a broader effort started last Jan. 15 to stop drug dealers in airplanes or boats along the Central American coast. Kelsey Alford-Jones from the Guatemala Human Rights Commission (GHRC) joins us to talk about Plan Martillo and other changes in Guatemala’s fight against drug trafficking. GHRC is a non-profit, grassroots, solidarity organization dedicated to promoting human rights in Guatemala. Kelsey has been director of GHRC since 2011, working to support victims and survivors of human rights violations and advocate on their behalf in Guatemala, the U.S. and the international community.
