Anthropologist Reflects on Guatemalan Human Rights

Forensic anthropologist Fredy Peccerelli reflects on his work with the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation (FAFG) identifying the victims of massacres during Guatemala's 35-year civil war in an interview in the New York Times (March 30, 2004). The AAAS honored Peccerelli and his colleagues at FAFG for their research in a climate of personal risk to promote human rights at the 2004 Annual Meeting in Seattle.  FAFG scientists continue to endure death threats and harassment through the conduct of their work to help the families of victims reclaim their missing loved ones and assist judicial processes bringing those responsible for the deaths to justice.
