DescriptionThe participant describes his town (Chajul). Why does it not improve? Why does it not generate employment? Because they say that the town is rich in the clothing of its people, and is rich in forests. He also describes what happened in the war, what damage it caused, and spoke of the municipal mayor's management, and what the mega-companies are looking for in the middle of the territory, and the eviction of their inhabitants in their territories.
