Independence Day: What about the Peace Accords of 1996

Independence School Parade

Well, just two days ago I told you how the signing of The Guatemalan Peace Accords of 1996 had put an end to school bands and parades because many people felt this was against the peace people were trying to achieve since most bands play martial music. This fact only lasted a few years because by the time I came to Guatemala in 2001, parades were the norm again. Short memory, I guess.
