A bullet hole, from a shot fired by the police, marks a wardrobe in the home of Domingo Rax, 74. On 15 August 2014, the local Mayan population, angered by the arrest of two leaders of a peasant's human rights organisation, the 'Comite de Desarrollo Campesino' (CODECA), blocked a road in protest and a violent confrontation with the police followed. Three residents were killed during the clashes and Rax was one of many residents beaten and injured.
