Jennifer Harbury Speaks on her Struggle for Justice in Husband's Case

WHEN: May 6, 6:30-8:30pm

LOCATION: Stewart Mott House / 122 Maryland Ave, NE / Washington, D.C. 20002

GHRC hosts lawyer, activist, and author Jennifer Harbury for an exciting evening in Washington, D.C. Come and hear the most recent updates on the case of her husband, Everardo Bámaca. The case is precedent-setting and paradigmatic, and one that has begun to crack the walls of impunity for human rights violators during the internal conflict.

Bámaca, an indigenous leader of the guerilla resistance, was captured, tortured and murdered at the hands of members of the Guatemalan military on the CIA payroll. Jennifer began the search for her husband back in 1992. After incredible persistence, two hunger strikes, and a decision by the Inter-American Court, Jennifer is now helping push the Bámaca's case forward in Guatemala.

Jennifer's international reputation is well earned; her tenacity, courage, and knowledge of international law have kept her alive and fighting for justice during the past 18 years. Signed copies of her most recent book, Truth, Torture, and the American Way, will be available.
