Guayaqui Cua, Paraguay

Maria Lina Estorales cries while explaining how she and the other 21 families of the small community of Guayaqui Cua were evicted and their properties burned just two days earlier. She stated that security men from a nearby cattle-ranch, together with local police officers, acted on behalf of the large-estate owner to evict them without notice. According to the authorities the lands are owned by the government but the large-estate owner has been expanding his property and claims ownership over the area where the peasants were living.
