On March 8, 2017, 41 girls were killed in a fire at the state-run centre for children and youth Hogar Seguro Virgen de la Asunción in Guatemala. In addition, 15 survivors were also left severely injured. Almost 2 years later, there is still no justice for this state crime.

We will serve tapas and Breaking the Silence coffee.
