Title Testimony as Resistance in Guatemala
Description <p><a href=""></a>Juan Herrera wields an infectiously heartwarming smile, but he wasn't quite born with it. The 66-year-old Guatemalan peasant's prosthetic teeth, which replace those lost in an army-led torture session in the early 1980s, are but one weapon in a growing movement against military leaders that ordered the massacre and burning of his and hundreds of other villages.
