A little bit about Raccaya

28 Oct

Alfredo García, the relative of a victim of the Peruvian political violence, relates his personal experience and that of his community, Raccaya (Víctor Fajardo Province, Ayacucho) during the violence. He eloquently touches on many different acpects, such as the difficulties he encountered in Lima as a displaced person from Ayacucho, the experience of the community with the Public Ministry, and the differences between the legislation on paper and what is done for the relatives of the disappeared in reality. I am reproducing his testimonial here because it is emblematic of the experience of many Peruvian communities affected by the violence. This was recorded at the Symposium “Forensic Sciences in the Search for Justice in Peru” organized by EPAF at the Pontifica Universidad Católica del Perú on September 16th 2011.
