Ein Opfer des Erdrutsches

11. Mai 2016

Dear Rainer and friends:

It is with sorrow that we have to comunicate you the death of Francisco Abraam Gallego Brito. He was 15 years old and studing in the Instituto Sanchez in the second year of Basico (8th. grade) looking to have a better future. I am enclousing a picture of him.

Francisco Abraam Gallego Brito †

Francisco Abraam Gallego Brito †

Francisco is the oldest son of a mayan family that migrated from Nebaj looking for a better future in Guatemala City. Francisco’s mother and father also work in the dump as reciclers but as they have a formal permition of the municipality to work in the dump, they work in a higher part of the dump.

Francisco was working in the lower part of the dump as he was a minor. On April 28 when at 12.30 pm the floor colapsed by liquification, killing more that 100 people on this lower part of the dump were informal and minor work withour permision of the municipality. But also a garbage truck and a tractor of the municipality fell int he area of the accident killing all it ocupants as the machinery sunk in the liquified garbage.

Francisco was a humble and very well behaved `young pearson. He reperesents the hard working poor of Guatemala that works very hard to survive and have a better future.

You were part of his life, of his hope and of his strugle cut shor by structure of injuctice and margination of the indigenour people of Guatemala.

God bless Francisco in heaven, Franscisco’s familiy and you,
