Yaxha was the location of the most recent removals of illegal settlers in Guatemala's protected areas and archaeological sites.
Forty other families were removed from the Sierra del Lacandon park on May 23. The largest community, Centro Campesino, is still in a legal battle. Other actions are expected.
I just returned from the Porvenir station on the Usumacinta, where a contingent of 15 soldiers is in place to guard against reprisals on park guards and archaeologists.
