Angelica Osorio Osorio, sixth grader, studies typing in front of a mural of the massacres in her community. 

ADIVIMA carries a sign saying, “Justice! For our 73 brothers from Rio Negro “disappeared” on February 13, 1982 in the town of Xococ.” Survivors carry coffins with the remains of their family members exhumed from the masacre site in Xococ. 


A month after the men were killed in Xococ, 70 women and 107 children from Rio Negro were massacred and dumped in a mass grave on the mountain of Pacoxom.
