Concern over Deforestation in Sololá

Indigenous organizations, development committees, community development councils, and residents reject wanton logging in the mountains of Sololá.

Marcelino Ibaté, president of the Development Committee, stated that they observe trucks loaded with logs that are transported to sawmills.

Mary Sicajau, from the Organización Campesina de Sololá said that people need to be educated about deforestation so that they plant trees.

The community leader Agustín Saloj said that the authorities should protect nature because seedlings are scarce.
