Update on May 16, 2013
Good news: Ruben's case has been transfered from the local court in Santa Eulalia to a court in Guatemala's capital city. Ruben's partner, Cecilia Merida, explains that she's happy about the change because the hidroelectric company, Hidro Santa Cruz, has strong ties to the court in Santa Eulalia, and Ruben is much more likely to see due process in another court. She also hopes his upcoming hearing will be a chance to clear Ruben's name, along with all the other activists accused in this case. You can watch the interview with Cecilia on the petition page.
