Guatemalans Demand Ouster of Corrupt President



Otto Perez Molina was the first military official to rule a supposedly democratic Guatemala in a crisis that began in 1985. 

Since April of 2015 widespread street marches have demanded his resignation along with those of corrupt officials of social security and customs agencies. So far, more that 30 officials have been arrested in a customs bribery ring.

Over 75 percent of the people of Guatemala live in poverty, although the country has the highest concentration of millionaires in the region.
