Truth, Justice & Impunity

BTS believes that inequality in the global south often stems from decisions made in the global north in order to keep structures of oppression, violence and exploitation intact to benefit those with economic and political power. By supporting grassroots initiatives in both Canada and Guatemala to change these structures, BTS is part of a global movement towards participatory democracy, truth and justice.

In particular, we have supported victims of violence, historical and ongoing, in the pursuit of justice. We have done this through international accompaniment of witnesses, facilitating meetings and spaces for dialogue, writing articles and open letters highlighting human rights violations, urgent actions and supporting legal reforms for political, economic and social justice.
