Anne Frank Children's Human Rights Memorial - Antigua, Guatemala
The Ambassadors from Israel, Colombia, and key Guatemalan Congressmen assembled with the guests and visitors as the opening, but hard to hear speeches were given.
It was not that the sound system did not work, it worked well. The ceremony was cordoned off by yellow border tape and heavily armed police. On the outside of the tape, protestors, about ten in number with children in tow banged on drums, yelled, screamed, carried signs with epithets and the Palestinian flag painted on one. They slammed metal plates, trying to create disruption.
The dedication went forward.
