While Guatemalan community radio stations have been legally repressed or “criminalized” since 1996, there is a longer trend of military repression of community radio stations that reaches back to the 1970s. Looking at an extended narrative of repression lends context to the present day fight for policy change in favor of community radio rights; it illustrates a continual exclusion and sustained repression by the state against the institution of Guatemalan community radio and the Maya campesino population.
