Francisco Tiul Tut mourns the burning and destruction of his home in Barrio La Revolucion. On 8/9 January 2007, the Guatemalan Nickel Company, at the time a local subsidiary of Canadian mining company Skye Resources, ordered the eviction of five Q'eqchi' Mayan communities around Lake Izabal. Over 800 members of the state security forces carried out the forced eviction destroying and even burning several huts in the indigenous communities who claim the territory as ancestral land.
