Guatemala is a powder keg waiting to explode. This is just the first sing of what can be expected for the near future. It was never “if” there would be violent clashes in this government of iron hand, it was only “when”. The statements of Roxana Baldetti with the private sector that financed Otto Perez presidential campaign are clear:"this government will not permit (anyone) to stop the work we have to do."
The protests will increase, the reasons are inequality, hunger, lack of justice, lack of jobs and social inclusion that have never been solved and it will increase the social unrest. We predict that it will resemble the times of the civil war. And as a reminder, the Arab spring started out because of increase costs of living.
