Tuesday memorial for beloved Guatemalan activist Jose Ruiz Maya

Friends, family and comrades of Guatemalan activist and Chicago resident Jose Ruiz Maya will gather on Tuesday night from 6-9PM on Chicago's north side to remember our comrade and help raise funds for his funeral. The event is being held at Casa Guatemala's free trade store, Maya Essence, at 4357 N. Lincoln Ave. (at Montrose) on Chicago's north side.

For more than 25 years, Jose Maya was a committed participant in local movement work, never failing to lead with his compassion and sense of solidarity for the struggle for economic and social justice. For him, there were no sacred cows, and he informed his work with an abiding kindness — and a relentless refusal to simply stand by in silence, when the crimes of government instead demand that we step up.
