Children Often Working in Prostitution, Contract Killings and Fireworks Factories

Vice president Rafael Espada says contract killings, prostitution and working in fireworks factories are the most frequent forms of child exploitation in Gutemala. He indicated there are no clear statistics. He continued that it is unacceptable in the 20th Century that child labor still exists, and blamed it on a disorganized economy forcing families to send children to work. In the long term, it will need fair wages, better agricultural distribution, more organized economy and productivity and family integration to eradicate child labor. On the other side, President Alvaro Colom was given an award for his early childhood public policy which provides comprehensive care to children from birth to 6 years of age. The president said that 1, 971,000 children had been helped through the Mi Familia Progresa programs and thousands of others through the nutrition program.

    Has someone infiltrated your site? At the bottom of your great M3 Report which I read everyday, it says SAY NO TO AMNESTY and underneath it says VOTE YES ON THE DREAM ACT! What is going on??? The Dream (read Nightmare) Act is an Amnesty! Is the BP now condoning amnesty?

    • m3report Says:

      We are not seeing where there is a statement requesting a yes vote on the Dream Act. For the record, NAFBPO is adamantly


      the Dream Act. Please let us know if you still see it.
