Anti-union violence in Guatemala is escalating. On May 26, Idar Joel Hernandez Godoy, finance secretary of the IUF-affiliated banana workers union SITRABI, was shot dead by a gunman on motorcycle while driving through the village of Cristina to the union headquarters in the town of Morales.
This brutal assassination follows on the April 10 murder of SITRABI officer Oscar Humberto Gonzalez Vasquez, killed by two men on a motorcycle in Nueva Chiriqui, Morales. SITRABI leader Marco Tulio Ramirez was murdered in September 2007.
