Guatemala's bloody ordeal

25 November 1999

Guatemala has recently emerged from four decades of conflict. After 17 June 1954, when an armed coup, financed by the United States, overthrew the elected government of Jacobo Arbenz, the population was subjected to a bloody state-sponsored campaign to exterminate all opposition. Four years later, this brutal regime led to civil war. The Oslo Agreement, signed in 1994, led to the 1996 Definitive Peace Accord between the Guatemalan state and the guerrilla organisation Unidad Revolucionaria Nacional Guatemalteca (URNG). This put an end to the military conflict and was the beginning of a healing and national reconciliation process. Free article
